As a long-time resident of San Diego, we were shocked and appalled at the biased, unprofessional, and disruptive behavior of Judge Longstreth during our trial. What we expected should have been a fairly simple small claims appeal case turned into a living nightmare. From the start, Judge Longstreth was unclear about how the trial would be run in his courtroom including the acceptance of exhibits and then proceeded to be rude and yelled at our lawyer when she tried to ask clarifying questions about his protocol for exhibits vs that of a standard trial. During the testimony, on multiple occasions, Judge Longstreth rudely interrupted my testimony response and went on a 2–3-minute rant, deviating from the subject and resulting in my loss of concentration and train of thought.
During our trial with Judge Longstreth presiding, it appeared he had made up his mind within just a few minutes of the trial before even hearing all of the testimony and any cross-examination just by his behavior alone.
How do you go from a winning judgment case to now it not even being considered a case ripe for trial, that is a very far stretch and change in direction. Should there be this extreme behavior and decision between two judges who were presented with the same evidence from both the Plaintiffs and Defendants just a mere 60 days apart?
During investigation after the court proceedings with Judge Longsteth, we discovered he has a history and similar pattern of behavior and complaints of prejudice and being in favor of white privileged males.

let's do the math, the bill will increase the top amount of awarded damages $250,000 starting January 2023 by $40,000 each year for 10 years top. So multiply $40,000 times 10 equals $400.00 Then add $250,000 to the $400,000 equals $650,000 S0 ten years from today the most a litigant can get in California is $650,000 Then on the first of January each year it is increased by 2% So let's do the math and see how many years over the 10 years will it take to reach the amount of the TOP damages to ONE MILLION dollars.

Comments critical of Judge Robert Longstreth on not based on TIK TOK short clips on TIK TOK are not credible and not based-on FACTS as I said the law is the law and in California there is a limit in damages that can be recovered. Yes, judges like Longstreth can give an award of ZILLIONS OF DOLLARS but this does not mean that the moving party with recover this amount. An appellate court will bounce the damages of ZILLIONS of dollars right back and those judges are admonished.
On the other hand, as I said back alley deals with members of the secluded club are made all the time and these basically schemes generate big payouts for these clandestine judges and lawyers who are in the club. So, the comment can really apply to the person adding insults after insults because this is what happens in the courtroom of Judge Robert Longstreth. Judge Longstreth waits until all scheduled lawyers and cases are dismissed and then lays out the insults and verbal abuses, The comment below is a prime example of the abuse that goes on inside his courtroom. This is the language that Judge Longstreth uses including the repeated threat of sanction and degradation of the litigant before him,

48606-The attorney who wrote post, "simple for better use of words misguided", and also abusive and threatened by those who have different opinions.


AB35 affects MIRCA and non-economic damages. The Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act of 1975 (MICRA), prohibited an attorney from contracting for or collecting a contingency fee for representing any person seeking damages, in connection with an action for injury, or damage against a health care provider based upon alleged professional negligence in excess of specified limits. AB35 recasts those provisions and bases the amount of contingency fee that may be contracted for, upon whether recovery is pursuant to settlement agreement and release of all claims, executed before a civil complaint, or demand for arbitration is filed, or pursuant to settlement, arbitration, or judgment, after a civil complaint, or demand for arbitration is filed, as specified. The bill added and revised definitions for these purposes.
Existing law provides that in any action against a health care provider, based upon professional negligence, the injured plaintiff, is entitled to recover noneconomic losses, to compensate for pain, suffering, inconvenience, physical impairment, disfigurement, and other nonpecuniary damage. Existing law limits the amount of damages for noneconomic losses, in an action for injury against a health care provider based on professional negligence, to $250,000.
AB35 removes the $250,000 limit on noneconomic damages and expands the recast provisions to include an action for injury against a health care institution, as defined in the bill. The bill increases the applicable limitation, based upon whether the action for injury involved wrongful death. The poster did not pay attention to details in the bill and likely did not pay attention in law school, or in the courtroom.

[ Approved by Governor May 23, 2022. Filed with Secretary of State May 23, 2022. ]


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST
AB 35, Reyes. Civil damages: medical malpractice.
Existing law, referred to as the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act of 1975 (MICRA), prohibits an attorney from contracting for or collecting a contingency fee for representing any person seeking damages in connection with an action for injury or damage against a health care provider based upon alleged professional negligence in excess of specified limits.
Existing law provides that in any action against a health care provider based upon professional negligence, the injured plaintiff is entitled to recover noneconomic losses to compensate for pain, suffering, inconvenience, physical impairment, disfigurement, and other nonpecuniary damage. Existing law limits the amount of damages for noneconomic losses in an action for injury against a health care provider based on professional negligence to $250,000.
This bill would remove the $250,000 limit on noneconomic damages and expand the recast provisions to include an action for injury against a health care institution, as defined. The bill would increase the applicable limitation based upon whether the action for injury involved wrongful death. The bill would specify that these limitations would increase by $40,000 each January 1st for 10 years and beginning on January 1, 2034, the applicable limitations on noneconomic damages for personal injury and for wrongful death would be adjusted for inflation on January 1st of each year by 2%.
Existing law specifies that in any action for injury or damages against a provider of health care services, a superior court shall, at the request of either party, enter a judgment ordering that money damages or its equivalent for future damages of the judgment creditor be paid in whole or in part by periodic payments rather than by a lump-sum payment if the award equals or exceeds $50,000.
This bill would increase the minimum amount of the judgment required to request periodic payments to $250,000.
THESE ARE THE FACTS AND THIS IS THE LAW. AS I SAID ANYTHING ELSE IS OUTSIDE THE LAW.

THREE COMMENTS that deserve a response about this judge his name is Robert Longstreth and the person writing this multiple times is simple for better use of words misguided. As settlement of $1,000,000.00 you can add a zillion zeros to that and welcome to the California courts. Caps per damages were $250,000 TOPS and a case filed after February 2023 NOW CAPS at $350,000 under AB35. This means that this is the most you can get apparently the burn victim should have receive much, much less than $250,000 I am sure this will and should come back on an appeal. No insurance company is going to LEGALLY pay more than required.
Having said this, you basically by ignorance are agreeing with all the negative comments against judge Robert Lonstreth. He is incompetent at best, arrogant, narcissist, insidious, self-serving and gloats about making litigants life miserable. His rulings and conduct are outside of the law and he is allowed to do so because he and the attorneys that love this evil judge are members of the Inns of the Inns of the Court in North County it is the Fiorenzo V., Lopardo Chapter 303 and in San Diego it’s called
The Honorable J. Clifford Wallace Inn of Court / Louis M. Welsh Inn. More than 20,000 members in state, federal and administrative law judges are members of this SELECTIVE CLUB. What it means is basically this the cases are decided by the club and members of the club get big winnings it’s a payoff. The judges and attorney that are all corrupt members of this club, they are not good judges or attorneys they have sold their soul to the devil and their payout is $$$$$$ in litigation wins regardless of the claims at bar. The courts are corrupt just like members of congress with their lobbyists they all get rich and the PEOPLE get the middle finger.
Most attorneys and many judges are not part of this scam bag club and are working dogs for the tiny wins they make. So, when you see a big win that is against the legal bar of awards you know that these player judges and attorneys are in the club and we aren’t in it.

@48601Neyo White, the Georgia citizen that went for a chemical peel on face and was burned, was awarded $1,000,000.00 and initially sought $10,000; as yes, no opinion of this SD judge, but does seem smarter than some very abusive LA family judges and their LASC family court judge and attorney cronies; where victims suffer severe injury and damages, as abusers' are protected, when they pay connected abusive attorneys and victims damages should be in the millions, according to the opinion of many and there also needs to be serious accountability. If this judge keeps his circle small, he is wiser and smarter than most; and it is weird that this "disgruntled attorney and/or jealous judge colleague" 48587- is obsessed with how many friends they think this judge has. How would they even know and why even care? Creepy.

I learned Longstreth donated to the judge overseeing my case in San Francisco hoping to influence favor to the defendant in my defamation case I later won $25k. Back in 2010 Longstreth asked me to dismiss my other defamation case in San Diego which was the right thing to do based on a quash motion filed, however he made a sadistic assessment that “there are consequences for going after the wrong man” indicating he wanted me heavily punished. A famous horror film special effects person had the quash filed who had used another’s email to troll me when I was starting a singing career. I was quite shocked to be informed Longstreth was trolling the judge in San Francisco with donations to his election just prior to hearing my case. Longstreth is highly political.

If he does not like you he calls you last when everyone else has left the courtroom. There are really good judges out there that do not get credit for the good work they do and actually do read and apply the law. Longstreth is simply a really bad immoral judge.

Longstreth is an arrogant, obnoxious know-it-all who is needlessly rude to those who have the misfortune to appear before him. He doesn't care about the evidence or this history of the case--his rulings are based on his schizophrenic personal biases, not the FACTS AT HAND. He was appointed to the bench in 2008--12 YEARS AGO--and he's STILL ruling in the probate and family law courts?!?! Probate, family law, small claims, etc. are where the new judges are placed so they can get some experience. There is a reason Longstreth hasn't been moved up to the "Big Boy" courtrooms...it's because he's terrible.

My civil lawsuit appeal was unexpectedly transferred to Longstreth's court at the last minute. Before the hearing even began, he accused me of "Going for a second bite at the apple" and decided I was just being greedy because I didn't get enough money the first time. That wasn't the case at all: I was there to correct a legal error the first judge had made. I'd sued my former apartment building manager and they filed a frivolous counter-suit for back rent. The first judge awarded them back-rent even though they building owner had FIRED them long before we went to trial. If anyone was entitled to back rent, it was the building owner, not the property management company he'd fired; they were no longer his representatives and lacked authority to sue on his behalf. I showed Judge Longstreth the civil code that reads "All law suits must be filed in the name of the party in interest." The building owner is the party in interest, not the FIRED property manager, yet the building owner wasn't named in their lawsuit. I pointed out to the judge I'd already paid back rent to the owner and if the property managers still worked there, they would know that...he IGNORED me and the law and awarded them EVEN MORE money than they asked for to "teach me a lesson" about going for a second bite of the apple.

Judge Longstreth has been a blessing. Frankly, he's probably the SMARTEST judge we've worked with, does a lot of preparation behind the scenes, keeps track of facts like no other, sees through smokescreens, and is not afraid to make tough decisions. He has a challenging job that I don't envy; having to listen to days of testimony was exhausting for me as a litigant and I don't know how he does it, but he's sharp as a tack, pays attention (even when you don't think he is), and doesn't get distracted. He's a gem and you have nothing to worry about if you tell the truth, have a good track record of acting in your kids' best interest, and listen to his instructions. You and your family are in good hands with Judge Longstreth!
