She was very rude when talking to me in court and very nice talking to the father of my child. I feel it's a discrimination toward my skin color. I can feel the anger coming out of her when she spoke to me.

Most rebuttals to the Activists working to raise awareness about the issues plaguing Solano County Family Court is that the activists are simply mothers who are angry/upset/unhappy.

Or any other EMOTIONAL state.

We have numerous cases where Judge Carringer did one or more of the following:
- Violating the UCCJEA
- Issuing gag orders against litigants who are known for speaking to media about her rulings
- Routinely disregarding credible evidence of domestic violence
- Discussing and/or taking action in cases where she was previously disqualified
- Modifying orders
- Signing orders on behalf of a retired judge post retirement

People who routinely use claims like “angry” or “upset” are simply relying on the public to disregard credible claims from female litigants by branding them “scorned women”.

Because Carringer is a Jurist and this type of behavior is unthinkable, people are astonished by the allegations and want to believe that these things simply cannot be true, or are exaggerated.

Until they witness and/or experience it first hand.

For some reason we cannot quite deduce, Solano County had a completely poisonous Family Law bench, three judges all behaving equally unethically.

We do not yet know the source of the problems.

Attorneys who primarily practice Family Law are well aware of this, leading SEVERAL attorneys to refuse to represent female litigants, period.

Judge Carringer is not an innocent well-meaning Jurist who doesn’t deserve criticism, she is an unethical Jurist who routinely spat in the face of the Judicial Canons and placed the lives of dozens, if not hundreds, of women and children at risk.

The LAST THING THESE JUDGES WANT is for the public to become aware of what they have done. This risks their ability to continue to run UNOPPOSED when they are up for election, which basically guarantees them a judicial seat in perpetuity.

If the public becomes WELL-AWARE AND EDUCATED about the actions of Jurists, it puts at risk their guaranteed cushy income (often in excess of $180,000) and prestigious position.

They LITERALLY cannot afford for you to know the truth.

Please do not become confused about the issues, research and learn more.

And know this: what we are currently aware of is ONLY the TIP of the Iceberg.

We KNOW there’s so much more beneath the surface.

And they are shaken to their core that they can no longer hide.

I am an attorney like the person below. What I would add is that it is not so much bias against people but she is too quick to form an opinion and believe the first thing she is told. You can see her anger. It's hard to get her to simmer down so you can tell her the OTHER side of the story.

I'm a local family law attorney. Recently, Judge Carringer has found herself the target of upset mothers for some reason. I'm not sure why that is because she doesn't seem to me to have any true biased against them. She seems pretty evenhanded in my opinion.

When she first was appointed, I felt like she didn't have a full grasp on family law and she made some rulings I didn't like and felt were wrong. However, as she has gained bench experience in family law over the years, I think she now is a pretty competent family law judge. She treats litigants and attorneys with respect.

If I had a criticism about her, I'd say she chooses which litigant she likes early on and then digs in. I wouldn't say that is a bias, it's just a personality thing.

If she had a bias, I think it may be against awarding men spousal support.

I wouldn't say she is an expert in family law, but she is more knowledgeable than your average family law judge in counties that rotate new judges in and out of family law every year. The longer she's on the bench in family law, the better she is getting at it. And at this point she's very good. However, I expect one day she'll rotate out of family law. I suspect she would rather be doing civil or criminal law.

If you argue the right legal argument, she usually makes the right ruling. I think that probably goes back to her career as a civil litigator. She was probably a pretty good attorney before she was on the bench.

In summary, I think she's a decent judge. I personally like her and think she is a pleasant person, which I appreciated in a judge. I can't think of any reason why an attorney or litigant wouldn't want to have a case in her courtroom, unless it was the slight bias she may have against awarding men spousal support.

This woman is horrible and bias to say the least. She makes decisions based on how she is feeling for the day with little to no regard the effect it will have on the child. My sons father alleges a lot of things in court and I requested to have my son interviewed to eliminate the he said she said. My son's dad almost killed him not only did she deny me an interview with my son she gave his dad back 50/50 legal and physical custody.PLEASE get this woman OFF THE BENCH!!!!!!

Judge Christine Carringer has damaged the life of my niece forever,by supporting her abusive, drug and alcohol addicted father.
This judge separated my niece and her brother and punished their mother by awarding everything to the father (mentioned above).
Unbelievable decisions are being made by this person that is supposed to be an unbiased
Judge!
We pay her wages to ruin our children's lives.

Unfortunately I have two personal dealing with this Judge

1
In this case the mother has raised her 3 year old child since birth on her own. She has no record and no substance abuse issues. The judge ordered 50/50 even though the dad had meth and DV convictions for violence against the mother of his child.
2
Granted full physical custody to a man that has seen his 2 teenage daughters 3 times in 6 years as they were raised by their mother and myself with no help from him. Get this. Judge carringer ordered this even though the father was homeless and lived out of state. Those kids went with him to stay on couches and hotel floors. I would love to speak with someone about this. She lashed out at me for not disclosing something to the court but get this I did disclose it as it was on the response filed with the court. I guess at almost 2ook a year she can't take the time to read files prior to ruling. Equipo lane

Obvious she did not like me. Called me out on perjury but the respondent's documentation clearly had perjury and never called him out. I had to prove I was not. She also put our child in harm's way with how custody was determined. Judge Carringer clearly is bias.

Christine Carringer is by far the WORST judge I have ever experienced. She doesn't care about proof, she throws out valid and IMPORTANT evidence and facts. She picks one side and supports that side regardless of the truth. If she doesn't like your client she will punish them by ripping their child away from them for no valid reason. She is unfair and unprofessional. She is ripping children of all ages away from LOVING parents. She is helping parents alienate the other parent, she doesn't care about the child's best interest whatsoever. I am ashamed that nobody is stepping up to stop her from harming all of these children.

This woman is getting exposed for her criminal behavior! Has children ripped from their beds for allegations that turn out to be false, refuses to hear both sides, makes up her mind without hearing facts, refuses to acknowledge any evidence that doesn't fit her agenda. Laughs at domestic violence and makes a Mockery of Justice. Enough is enough. 2017 is the year she gets exposed and will be held accountable for her gross misconduct.

Does not deserve to be a Judge. Carringer is a twice arrrested and convicted DUI offender. Funny, she had her own nasty divorce and her ex husband had a domestic violence restraining order against her. She was an aggressor in her own marriage and takes it out on litigants! What a horrible choice for a family law judge! What a waste of tax payors money. She has no experience, ethics and respect for women. Carringer makes Solano County justice system look really bad. What a shame.

They do not have a zero rating button for this so I had to put a 1, but honestly I would love if they would go into negative numbers ;-) Over the past few weeks the things that I have heard and seen about his judge is shocking. Her actions have endangered many children and she still abuses her power. She thumbs her nose a the law and proper procedure and flat out does whatever she wants with no consequence. Peremptory challenges, challenge for cause for judicial disqualification, writs, and complaints to the BAR, and the local court, have been filed against her and have been ignored. The next step is complaints to the Judicial Review Board. How do we get justice out of this justice system when the people we file complaints with are part of her circle or side with the bad judges? I am really confused are we not the ones who hold the power here? they are elected officials our tax dollars pay these people, we have a right to a fair trial and due process....

Interesting. A male lawyer yesterday said, "She's spring-loaded to assume fathers don't get enough time and to make sure they get it, she has to blame the mothers." A MALE attorney.

She has to be angry at one or the other. She rules WITHOUT knowing or hearing the facts. The other side can say whatever they want and when we go to defend ourselves she tells us to shut up. She rolls her eyes, threatens to take away your child or children. She is very nice to the other party and allows them to say anything they want and they have to have no facts or proof of the validity. She looks like she hates her job and hates kids. She is all about career and probably put her career before her kids.

I am a family law attorney who practices in a few counties. I asked about Carringer and was told, "She always has to be mad at someone." I am uncomfortable in her courtroom because you never know what will set her off. She forms her opinions based on moving papers instead of waiting to hear the other side of the story. Dangerous. Will she be leaving family law soon?

Unbelievably bias. Favors council of her choice with obsurd judgements. Carringer fails to follow the solano county court's mission statement "the best interest of the child". Carringer has made judgements based off of hear say, then goes back on her judgment and changes parenting schedules with no logical reason. One major issue this judge has is she strings out a case for years, and based on who the attorneys are she will change her orders in favor of her choosing, I have personally watched her continue a nonsense case favoring one party, then a new attorney is retained by the opposite party and the case is solved and over before going to trial with the new attorney. It is unfortunate that she allows bias behavior, politics, and bribery in her courtroom. She will be stopped.

I would rate her below 1 is it was possible. Bias, racist, sarcastic, rude and ignorant . . . she should not be in Family Law, she should not even be a judge in my opinion. Making decisions without bothering to become informed of circumstances, refuses to see evidence because "her judgment" makes her no doubt on statements endangering children's lives.

She started out pretty good. Then she started becoming annoyed and sarcastic. Her reputation among lawyers now is, "what happened?" She is rude, short/tempered and openly rolls her eyes and scowls at people. Not a good judicial demeanor AT ALL. They should have given her another assignment, not family law. She might be smart but not judicial.
