"After a ruling, by Judge Riff; my one of ex's corrupt, perjuring, rule breaking lawyer , wrote a letter to Judge Riff, listing '' his "clerical errors" where Ms. Bohen (tricky dick's "sidekick) wanted him to change the party, certain comments were attached to--all to benefit my violent ex., even more .....and to harm me even more. Judge Riff dutifully obliged. -Judge Riff dutifully followed what slimy attorney, Ms Bohen told him to write and then put out another ruling. Ms Bohen never filed any motion--just told Judge Riff what to write, what she did not agree with and party he attributed statements in ruling to-that she was not pleased with--- Incredible!!! It is way worse than even this-- This is one of many acts of questionable conduct, by Judge Riff. Seriously?That obvious?

Again FALSE RECORD and/or quid pro quo, bribery--DOES NOT make a Valid ruling--no matter how high the judges , the family court judges "get to. Just makes appearence's of more co-conspirators--in the High Crimes and Misdemeanors--abuses of powers-malice , oppression violations of civil liberties--.

Drag this many corrupt people in--an the more crime ridden "F"-ups by corrupt state actors. "


^^OMG these criminals, doing each other's bidding, all need to be locked up.

There needs to be a class action and:or a shake down by the all authorites, of all conspiring, criminals in the family courts and all those protecting themand doing their bidding.

I used to be judgmental about people who committed crimes until I sat before Judge Riff. Now I fully understand how a sane person can be driven to do something terrible. He is a dangerous person to have on the bench. He is a small man who plainly displays his issues with women in every awkward interaction. If you look like him, then congrats: you've won your case.

This judge is a nightmre. he literally winked at me then smiled on my very first day at trial in his courtroom. It was sexist and gross, but I chose to ignore it. He then proceeded to cut the trial time allotted to my case literally in half, and "strongly urged" us to not call any witnesses, even though mine waited outside for two days. Who would call witnesses when the person deciding your case strongly urges you not to due to his personal time constraints? He then proceeded to dismantle my entire life, and also made basic mistakes transposing things my ex-spouse said and assigning them to me...then based his judgment on those erroneaously assigned quotes. Again: a nightmare. I might be the only woman in California married for 10 years to a man making more than $200k/year, who left a courtroom with $0 in alimony. I will likely have to file for bankruptcy just to be able to pay for my medication for chronic illnesses. He took away even more than that, but I won't go into more detail. He's sick.

Judge Riff denies victims of domestic violence and child abduction their civil rights in his court room. He aids and abets abusers and allows them to railroad and abuse their victims further with legal abuse and complete denial of a fair trial.

Judge Riff was a toxic tort Attorney who protected toxic chemical companies from lawsuits. He hates victims and is very sadistic in family court.

He knows absolutely nothing about family law and yet he is already the presiding judge of the family law division that has jurisdiction over 10 million residents of LA county!
He even believes his rein of terror extends beyond state and international borders.

No child anywhere in California, the USA or the world is safe with this child trafficker and psychopathic abuser on the bench.

He must be removed immediately and his victims must be compensated for his flagrant abuse of their civil rights in violation of state, federal and international law.
