What others have said about Hon. Gilbert A. Romero


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA7809
Rating:Not Rated
In People v Mills an elderly nursery school teacher filed a worker's comp. claim because she was injured at work.
Romero felt she had committed criminal perjury when she testified at her civil deposition that she had not suffered any prior industrial accidents. Well, in 1997 she was involved in a minor car accident. No claim was ever filed. No medical treatment was received. Based on these facts Romero issued a felony arrest warrant and had the old lady arrested at her home at 5:00 A.M. Five police units present. Later a different judge dismissed the case.


Comment #: CA5160
In the case I witnessed Judge Romero disregarded the unreliable and admittedly contradictory statements made by a police officer to render a guilty judgment against the defendant. The officers’ written complaint was factually opposite of his sworn statements in court and was the sole basis of the prosecutions’ case. Judge Romero, after questioning the officer from the bench and leading him to a different ‘recollection’ made a decision based on flawed testimony. In my opinion Judge Romero actions were not without prejudice.
