What others have said about Hon. Michael A. Leversen



Comment #: CA5621
He is a horrible man, who abuses power. He automatically has every defendant guilty, and will go as far as filing false police reports because their might be evidence of a crime that was not committed. If you get him as a Judge the best thing you can do if file 170.1 or 170.6 and disqualify him. Please report hi to Judicial because you will never get a fair hearing. Every lawyer I talk to about him, thinks he is an assh*le, but I think that is being nice. He has pushed case(s) to trial claiming their is enough evidence, but the defendant turned out to be innocent. He imposes harsh sentences, and makes defendants pay excessive fines. He illegally records phone conversations, which is illegal in California. I hope he gets cancer for he does to people. He is anything but honorable. Complete disregard for peoples un rights, but deny them the right to an attorney. If a case is negative, he will have it remove from the news. Why should anyone have to put up with pig? I can't think of a good word to say about him, but when I have a bad case of the runs he comes to mind. He has no respect for the law.
