What others have said about Hon. Gail A. O'Rane



Comment #: CA10740
I have had to sit in the family courtroom many times. She is very patient and spends the time needed to really hear and consider cases. It seems like she thoroughly reviews cases before hand also. Very fair Judge that truly cares about upholding the laws the court is obligated to do.

She needs to be stopped. How do we do this? I've been told she violated my privacy.

This woman "Gail A O`Rane must be removed form this critical & sensitive position seat, today 10/26/16 I was there at the courtroom and I saw a case the poor guy had his lawyer his name Arthur Khachatourians who tried his best and I admired him fighting for his client and proofed that the petitioner and her sister wittiness both were lying about the case but guess what? in the end this WOMAN judge teamed up with the petitioner "WOMAN" although the lawyer had a stronger case and I thought for sure he will win his client`s case but I was chocked with this WOMAN judge picking up the side of the petitioner

She doesn't review cases regarding restraining orders. Even when she has evidence showing otherwise that supports the father's case. It seems as she sides with the mother. She needs to be removed from her seat as she was apointed by Gov. Brown. Let's open an investigation to see how her rulings fall. Does anyone know how to do this?

Can be very vindictive and swayed by personal bias. Not a great intellect. New judge who doesn't know the law.

This judge has no clue. She has admitted in court that she made mistakes in her orders and does nothing to trying and correct them. She has no regard for father's rights and is biased towards fathers. She continues to allow my ex to violate court orders without penalty and has cost me my daughter and my daughter is now a troubled teen. She allowed my daughter to stay with my ex who is severely depressed and perjured herself multiple times in court documents. She needs to be removed from the bench. She is never on time to court and strolls in wenever she is done having her morning coffee and chat sessions. She deos not look or considers facts in the case. She flip flops her opinion from one court date to the other. REMOVE HER PLEASE and look at her decisions for possible reversal.

This judge does not know the law! She listens to what others have to say and rules in their favor to cover herself or to win favoritism it appears. She violated the law in her ruling against me. Never listened to me or the facts I provided.

She's a new judge and can't make correct decision, has to go off reports to cover her safe. Custodial parent can be drinking and on drugs and Gail doesn't care. Doesn't care about Childs best interest and safety. Doesn't read all edvience that is submitted.
