If your a minority man and your family law case is assigned to Judge Loomis the first you thing you do is file "AFFIDAVIT OF PREJUDICE PREEMPTORY CHALLENGE TO JUDICIAL OFFICER" (Code Civ. Proc., ยง170.6), to get your case switched to another judge. The form can be found online and no reason is needed however you can site his previous history of racism and bias towards minority men. Loomis already ruined my childs life dont let your kid be the next one.

Among the best I have seen. I have watched him deal with extremely difficult litigants with a calm that borders on saint-like, carefully considering all sides of the case, even when no one would blame him for citing them for contempt and throwing away the key.

I have befallen Judge Llyod Loomis who suspended my visitation based on a lie by my baby momma that I yelled at one of her daycare workers. Now I'm out of my daughters life for two and half weeks and she has no explanation and their is no reasoning for it. It's like the minority report he is punishing just in case I do something. I have never had a domestics violence claim or any issues with my daughter on my fat baby momma and her crack head attorney Mary hilyard. Now I have my daughter attorney David Rickett team up with my baby momma because I truly did yell at his idiot girlfriend/assistant when they were not taking action my baby momma is a liar and determine to make me pay for not wanting to have sex with her anymore. Judge Loomis takes whatever she says as the truth even when I have proven she is a liar. I don't know if judge Loomis is a racist since I'm a black man or he has daddy issues and thinks that men can't parent. I'm tried of complaining, how do we get change if so many of us are having our lives ruined by Judge Loomis. Sadly the time he has stolen from my daughter and I can never be replaced or all the precious moments that will be lost in her growth and development. Clearly we can see my baby momma is only out to hurt me even it means crushing my daughter. And Judge Loomis is her pawn. Maybe it's because I'm in pro per and my baby momma has an attorney yet you would think the law is the law. Just Loomis even as me doing all the pick up and drop offs contrary to california common law the receiving parent provideds transportation.

This judge is extremely biased. He considers testimony and evidence that is not before him for consideration, allows hearsay, hears illegally obtained / inadmissible testimony and evidence and rules based upon it. He renders decisions for people who are not a party to the action, without any proper notice, without allowing due process, without any notification to the party of the illegal decision rendered, and light-heartedly strips the constitutional rights of an Air Force veteran who fought two tours in Iraq to protect the very rights stripped from him without cause or legal authority. He creates a team of his own biased peers and empowers them with government funds to choose additional biased peers to participate in the violation of a child's legally protected rights to privacy and confidentiality when speaking to her court appointed attorney and psychologist. This judge never reads the documents submitted. When presented with written evidence proving that opposing counsel and / or the court appointed minor's counsel have lied on the record, he acknowledges having seen it, and then completely disregards it. Every hearing in the case is held over from the morning until the afternoon, because he is always behind schedule. Some days the issues aren't heard at all, requiring a new hearing date and thousands of additional dollars to be heard. He allows counsel to run his court room, and asks the clerk about matters of law, because he does not know how to do his job. He is completely incapable of handling the simplest of cases, and is a mess at dealing with complex cases. He does not render decisions when promised. There is not a single redeeming quality about this incompetent, disingenuous, and pathetic representation of our U.S. legal system.

Worst judge I have ever experienced. Totally biased to one side. Seems to make judgments based on relationships outside the courtroom. If you get this judge make sure to hire an attorney he golfs with. Tramples civil rights, yells at people, does not read paperwork. BAD BAD BAD BAD. I would guess that the ONE moron attorney one civil litigant that posted good things about this judge are the very people this judge unfairly sides with. This judge has literally protected a proven child abuser with no conscious. I wonder what his price is. FIRE THIS JUDGE.

He is thoughtful, even-handed, and patient, even with hordes of difficult pro pers. He is a good, solid family law judge. We need more like him on the LASC family law bench.

This judge now sits in Department L of the Los Angeles Superior Court, San Fernando, California. He is a family law Judge. My experience with this judge was so disturbing, I felt that I had to email a message to Governor Jerry Brown (who appointed this man to the bench recently, in mid-2013) explaining to him that this judge's misconduct prevented and hindered me from receiving a full, fair, and impartial hearing on a custody/visitation issue, in addition to a domestic violence restraining order that I sought against the respondent. This judge allowed me only ten minutes (eight for the DV restraining order, and two for the child custody/visitation hearing) because he was "already behind schedule and still had other cases to hear." Worst of all was when this judge admitted, on record, that he in fact did not read any court documents submitted for this case, no pleadings, nor my declarations, nor my witness declarations in preparation for the hearing, because he was "already behind schedule." Of course, the judge knew nothing about the case and randomly made statements that made no sense and were not relevant to my case. The times that I appeared in this case (due to the many continuances he gave), he was either dozing off on the bench (that's right, falling asleep), or stressed and anxious, glancing at the wall clock every other minute. I write this in hopes of forewarning others about this judge's misconduct on the bench. His blatant disregard for the concept of justice was disgusting.
