Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA8120
I am an journalist. She allowed me to come to the bench on hearsay then abandoned the case to "judicial review". She is too stupid and emotional to be a judge. Hearsay is hearsay and is never admissible. This case is in the appeals court. D068339

Comment #: CA7449
I have personally witnessed this judge violating the law on numerous occasions. Some of the highlights include making up her own "facts" and adding them to the record, not allowing pro per litigants to state their case or appear as their own legal counsel, calling pro per litigants "argumentative and difficult", refusing to allow written contracts as evidence, misreporting the proceedings in her minutes, etc. In the interest of the public justice, she should be removed from the bench.

Wonderful Judge.

She is the worst kind of judge. She is willing to make a bad decision on purpose, and did not disclose a huge conflict of interest. I am forced to file an appeal against her decision, because she allowed irrelevant evidence against my objection. She allowed the opposing party to submit an article that I wrote, called "Is LASC a Racketeering Organization," even though she worked as a researcher at LASC in the field of family law before moving to San Diego.
