How this guy Bret D. Hillman earned his position in the Judge chair, I have no idea. I cant even show him respect as a judge because he does not deserve that title. He is uneducated in Child Development, the safety and welfare of children and he is also unfit to be a family law judge. He favors the mother on all cases and does so with disgust towards the father. Hillman will literally show an expression of disgust when communicating with the father in the courtroom. Hillman is very disrespectful towards the father and will show complete sympathy towards the mother no matter how much negative evidence is presented of the mother in the files before him. Bret D. Hillman needs to be removed from his position as Judge immediately. Hillman is unfair, unjust and unfit to be a Judge. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger must have been drunk when he appointed Hillman to be a judge for Tulare County. Arnold Schwarzenegger probably sobered up and said, "I made who judge??!!" Somebody who has superiority over Bret D. Hillman PLEASE! review Hillmans performance as a judge, investigate his court reports, have an undercover investigator sit through Hillmans court hearings and terminate Hillman from his position! Hillman is better off flipping burgers at McDonalds.

Judge Hillman has to be the single most careless, thoughtless, reckless, arrogant Judge I have ever witnessed. It is my opinion he has an extraordinary bias against women and has either no understanding of family law or just utter contempt for it. I think his rulings are arbitrary and not based in fact or the law.
