Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA18954
Rating:9.4
Comments:
I appeared for an unlawful detainer matter and watched Judge Frank handled various matters before mine. A lot of the parties before him are not represented. He takes the time and effort to explain procedure and his ruling to all. He ensures that the trial was conduct fairly. He was incredibly patient and polite to everyone in his courtroom.

Civil Litigation - Private

One of the fairest judges on the bench. This judge rolled up his sleeves and spend literally tens of hours researching the law and determining what is fair in unchartered territories of healthcare law in order to determine an equitable ruling between litigants and the multibillion dollar healthcare insurance carriers. He has ruled on numerous cases , both for and against the small guy, but his rulings are fair, well thought out and he explains in detail the how and why. If either side disagrees with him, he will listen - to a fault- attentively and determine if there was an issue with his ruling. He is not a haughty judge at all. He is very humble. I truly cannot understand why anyone would give him less than 10 stars. The system is wasting this resource by having him rule on small claims cases. He really should be dealing with much more complex cases in civil court. HE IS THAT GOOD!!!! If they do move him to a higher bench I will truly miss his clarity of his thought process and his will of true equitable rulings .
If you are lucky enough to get this guy and have a righteous claim , make sure you do not even think of a peremptory challenge. He will give you a fair ruling and spend the time figuring out the issues

Bad judge. Nasty temperament and unfair. Should be kicked off being a judge. Unfair and prejudiced. Taks about his personal life and his vacations. A complete jerk!

Litigant

Rating:1.0
Comments:
This judge seems to be biased against women. He is erratic, mean and nasty, He says one thing and then immediately, changes mind and is nasty to litigants.I consider him one of the worst judges and feel she should be voted off the bench as he is a disgrace. Very condescending and unprofessional. Suffers from small man syndrome. Has to be nasty and sarcastic to feel better about himself.

Allows his clerks to enter default judgments without NOTICE and will even brag about taking vacation during the time clerk entered default. Doesn't care if no hearing on merits. Doesn't care if plaintiff's do not serve properly and lack of adherence to CCP
