What others have said about Hon. Kate Powell Segerstrom



Comment #: CA19523
She refused to allow me to present my side of the eviction in a trial de novo (a completely new re-trial), refused to allow me to complete my testimony, interrupted and then ended my examination of the plaintiff, and refused to order witnesses related to the plaintiffs to testify despite properly served subpoenas, even though one witness, plaintiff's mother, was in the courtroom wearing an obvious wig. I learned later that she and her relatives have used the services of Waters Plumbing, the plaintiff who refused to pay me for work done on the rental property that I occupied. Her performance was that of a biased party, not a judge. She should be removed from the Bench.


Comment #: CA15876
I’m not sure whether this church even cares about the relationship between parents and children I’ve had the unfortunate experience for the past year or so in this church has managed to do absolutely nothing Whatsoever highly unrecommended. The only thing I can say good about who is that she’s not quite as shitty as Commissioner pimentel.


Comment #: CA9771
Refuses to comply with Art 1, Sect 12 of her own CA State Constitution. Hands out max fines 100% of the time, thereby also violating the CA State Constitution's prohibition against assessing fines (by definition). Receives over $178k per year in compensation, and is a total waste of taxpayer money.
