Comment #: CA31386
Hon. Judge Guerrero made a very poor impression on me now that she is in the court of Appeals. She clearly did not read the entire record, obviously was distracted by other activities not related to her job, when reading the documents submitted to the court of Appeals in the making of her final opinion . She reminds me that girl at the end of the line in children’s game “ the broken telephone “, because her ruling is exactly that, the woman made up a new story and new facts that were never in the case, and the sad part is that the other two judges didn’t bother to confirm her findings with the actual facts of the case, and opted instead for a lazy “conquer”, which makes them look bad too now. In my opinion she is just not very smart and should not be holding a position of a judge if she doesn’t and can not pay attention to details, and the truth always lyes in the smallest details. She played her part in making my life as miserable as it can be, considering that my appeal was on a RO against me by my next door neighbors who are known gang members of Varrio Posole Locos of Oceanside, and who shot my tiny dog (she died as a result) in retaliation for a noise complaint that I signed. So now the gangsters are the protected party, with judgement affirmed, thanks to Patricia Guerrero. Only in America, Hollywood at it’s finest. I have to live with this nightmare for the rest of my life!


Comment #: CA13970
This judge denied my spouses request for a change of custody on a exparte hearing and then his attorney made the same request 5 days later and granted him sole custody when I had called the court and notified them I wouldn’t be attending because I had a family death. Moreover, I had never missed a hearing in 11 years. My ex didn’t bother to show up, there was no police report, and no CPS report demonstrating any abuse. Now, my daughter is failing high school, has not seen or spoken to my entire family in 4+ years. At 17, her father is trying to render our healthy daughter disabled to collect SSI. I was informed that my daughter can not access any phones, computers, drive, or spend time with friends outside of school. Who gives a parent with a history of documented DV via court finding sole legal custody? This judge destroyed our entire family. There are no words to describe the pain and anguish our family has been forced to endure and my child will remain a prisoner in her fathers care.

She fails to read the file.


Comment #: CA5005
She makes a decision then changes her mind at a subsequent hearing. She allows lawyers to abuse the ex parte process. She also gives custody to men when the court had previously made a finding of DV.
