I have been in front of Judge Evans on several occasions. I have found him to be Knowledgeable, fair, courteous, and even handed. He is very respectful to everyone before him.

Extremely fair. I was so disappointed when I arrived recently and a retired judge that is terribly biased against anyone that has crossed her in the past. But John Evans is very fair

Judge Evans should be removed from the bench. Hopefully disbarred too. He doesn’t care about rights for the gay, LBGT, seniors or self-represented litigants. Going to try and get this judge removed from the bench as he is a detriment to the Palm Springs area. He doesn’t know what he’s doing as he’s constantly reading from books and then when you ask him a question he’s rude. He should be removed from the bench as he’s not good for people. He’s clueless about Probate doesn’t even know what he’s doing

Does not know or follow the law or Code of Civil Procedure. Shows preference for local Riverside County attorneys (home town preference). Does not follow his own rulings or findings. Makes arbitrary rulings. The clerks in his court are very disorganized. Affidavit this judge immediately.

Comment #: CA8573
Appears to not know basic black letter statutory law, and case law, because he was reversed on March 18, 2016 on a simple demurrer.

Though previously worked in insurance defense, Evans is very fair and unbiased.
