He is awful in criminal court. I guess how can we expect him understand American culture. He used to hold his uneducated mom from the 3rd world and went to all the drama and gossip shows from Hollywood to rule on bench.Not to mention he is a Republican. He hate non-white except Indian American. He is a pro-DA and a hate crime to defendants.
He should not be in Santa Clara County superior court to fool educated citizens. He does not know what he is doing at bench at all. I said remove him!

I did not get the chance to complete my comments. Here is moer:
His ruling completely violate my Constitutional rights, including but not limited to, 1st amendment right, equal protection and due process. I do have right to make comment as long as my comments do not violate TRO. My comment was to HOA’s attorney, not even to petitioners. This judge instantly hates non-white citizens. He is evil and enjoys his power to hurt people. He is not white but he thinks he is. He also refused to hear testimony and try to trick me that I can argue more later. But I never get the chance to argue later. He is a liar and a bully. He just wants to bully his way to the court. We, the educated legally immigrated, do not trust he being a judge. He only cares about rich citizens. He is running a drama court, no need to know the laws because he does not rule laws by laws, ignorance of privacy laws.He said it is a common practice for janitor arrived in CID ownership town house to take picture without any permission. He also hates to hear accident. He has a discussing looking when he heard accent. He demanded the other side to file defamation lawsuit against while the HOA manger told many residents that I was mentally ill and no board members like me. He is not white but he thinks he is. He also refused to hear testimony and try to trick me that I can argue more later. But I never get the chance to argue later. He is a liar and a bully. He just wants to bully his way to the court. We, the educated legally immigrated, do not trust he being a judge. He only cares about rich citizens.

In addition, he lied and said that he read my case. However, he stated in the court that
my request for TRO was denied by dep 11, which was totally a lie. It was granted and legally served. Either he does not know what he was doing or he intentionally lied to me and tried to fool me. He indirectly calling me stupid.
