"24587- Civil Litigation - Private--"This judge is a nightmare. he literally winked at me then smiled on my very first day at trial in his courtroom. It was sexist and gross..."


^ In my opinion, Former Family Law Division "supervisor"-cough-cough, Thomas Trent Lewis, seemed to have all of his dirty ducks in a row, when he made Lawrence Riff # 2, who then became quack judge, #1, when Thomas Trent Lewis retired.

In August 2019, Trent Lewis quite conveniently told Metropolitan News-Enterprise, that "Presiding Judge Kevin Brazile has chosen Judge Lawrence P. Riff, who is currently assistant supervising judge, to take over Nov. 1 in overseeing the court’s 70 family law departments, and that Brazile has named Judge Shelley L. Kaufman as the Number Two judge in the division.....After my retirement, I intend to remain fully active in the family law field exploring a wide variety of opportunities ...." Yet, as he stated, Lawrence Riff was already the #2 for Trent Lewis

Interesting, when Lewis wanted to make sure his statements said, "Presiding Judge Kevin Brazile has chosen Judge Lawrence P. Riff, .." (as if Trent Lewis did not have an input on Lawrence Riff, being #2-a judge who had hardly any family law knowlege/experience), who knows all the sins and secrets, of the Family Law Division (who seemed to be "groomed" by Lewis) and is himself complicit and involved of many of these sins and secrets.

There are many who have had a lot to say, about both Lewis and Riff, among others and the fact that Riff was even put in #2 position and then #1, in the Family Law Division.

24587- Civil Litigation - Private--"This judge is a nightmare. 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? .."

^ Very disturbing and disconcerting conduct, by Judge Riff, as detailed in comments. I wonder what Family Law Division #2, Judge Shelley Kaufman thinks of this? Does she just play along, or is she offended? What about Judge Kevin Brazile? Where has he been?


The failed leadership, in the LA county Family Law Division, deep rot and corruption, sexism, nepotism, cronyism, of LA county family courts, has been allowed to fester, under Judge Riff's watch and of all current "leadership," as well as, former failed leadership.

Removal of a name, from this site, does not remove the crimes, corruption and civil liberties violations. It just proves, everything we have been saying, plus way more. Additionally, failure to add a name, does not subtract from the crimes, corruption and civil liberties violations, committed. It actually just highlights them.

Just as when citizens remove statutes,these busts of horrible human beings, it does not take away from the horrfic crimes and civil iberties violations, commited by these despicable, people.

--Personally speaking, my violent, perjuring, money laundering ex. and his corrupt, perjuring , sleazy lawyers, are not worth the risks, loss of credibility, among other things, all these judges took, to go out of their way, to help my ex . and his connected lawyers, while violating my civil liberties, obstructing justice and outcomes, that no reasonable judge would make, while engaging in conduct, in which no reasonable judge would consider.

---They should all get their money back from their law schools. They needed this many judges and lawyers, working together, against female, self-represented litigants, while also cheating and rigging cases?

What does this say about them, or us? Are we that good and/or are they that bad?

--Some of us have posted comments, which included a recent, very well articulated comment, that was written, on Thomas Trent Lewis, by a mother, who is attempting to get her child back, (who many of us support) -who has had similar judges, situations, as many of us, including w/ Lawrence Riff, Tamara Hall, as well....

Our comments were deleted, by RR monitors---but, they did not stop there---they deleted Thomas Trent Lewis" name, from the site--so no one can post on this former judge (who is now a" rent -a -judge").

--Additionally, they have never added Michael Powell's name to this site, even though it was requested.


--It seems that some of us have hit a nerve (of truth) , with the same circle of LA county, family law judges and the lawyers they are in bed with (beside being in bed with each other) --who seem to be unraveling, in their mens rea.

--All the counties-judges, in the US and Puerto Rico, that these monitors have to "edit"--and yet, use so much time, protecting this same circle of LA county family law judges (while leaving up hyperbolic comments , on other judges? Hmmm? Lawrence Riff is part of this crony circle, that has someone very nervous, who seems to want deletion of the truth and comments,

--While the monitors were not working , during the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, someone was indeed unraveling, pushing down our comments, on this circle of judges, while writing negative comments on others they have an axe to grind with and to distract, deflect from their own wrongdoings.

Certain jLA county family law judges (former judges) are all in bed together, while certain lawyers are in bed with (the same group of judges) ---don't seem to think twice, about violating laws, civil liberties, ethics etc.

--Someone seems to be unraveling--chopping at the bits, and making sure they get to these Atlantic Coast RR monitors, to delete comments and Thomas Trent Lewis name from the site (and all postings associated with it.)- as soon as they returned to work. Someone (many) hit a nerve a truth, in the comments .

--This activity says a lot--and why are they so nervous? Seem to be much more nervous than some judges , in other counties, who have had hyperbolic comments written on them. The answer is obvious.

--They violated our civil liberties and lives-yet, they are determined to bleach comments (because they can't handle the truth, about what they have done)?

--Which begs the question, if someone did the same thing to them , that they did to us--how wwll would they handle it? NOT at all.

----We have been forced to handle horrific documented abuse, while being victim blamed, while our safety has been placed at risk (beside public safety), and/or lost property, forced into homeslessness, forced to be self-represented, having attorney fees denied, while an ex. hid assets and hired a high end, connected lawyer, in bed with a family law judge, we have repeatedly had motions denied, including CCP 170.1 170.6-denied, motions to set aside, (based on extrinsic fraud)-denied etc..

--Protective mothers have had a child ripped out of their arms, while some across state lines and even across the border, while we have had to deal with mob mentality and mob rule of this group of judges-all working in concert--against a female self-represnted litigant (and all of the above--most of the above) happened to many of us.

At least RR monitors are only partially redacting, instead of bleaching the comment.

I would argue, that the sentence that they redacted, was also a very innocuous statement, while also being protected 1st Amendment protected. However, since the "editor" is arguably one of the owners of this
site, which is private, it is also their right, to partially redact the comment. I actually find it amusing.

It is just very curious,that there are numerous the inflammatory comments , which they have chosen, broadly, to leave up, on several different judges, spanning in numerous counties, throughout the US and Puerto Rico. It would seem, someone has requested the comment be removed. It always seems to be focused on the same circle of LA county family law judges. Curious indeed.

Not to take away from Patricia Barry, is very much a hero, who fought for women, children, victims and civil liberties; let's remember Richard Fine, did the same and and was put in jail and also disbarred, and his only "crimes" seemed to be, calling out judicial corruption and injustices.

Patricia Barry is a hero, who fought for women, children and victims; called out the corruption in LA family courts, among other agencies, was not in the back pockets, of judges or connected lawyers, she was not in bed with corrupt judges: so some very nervous bad actors, attempted to silence her, by making sure she was disbarred.

Lawrence Riff is a public servant and now the family law devision "supervising judge"---he has ONE job--it is about time he does it. He would be wise, to take some time to learn family law and ethics, while he is at it. He should also take time to learn criminal law, RICO and it's consequences.

--They're baaaack!


--- Robing Room monitors do not understand the 1st Amendent, despite what is happening in the streets, or perhaps because what is happening in the streets--

They seem want to protect their guilty West Coast friends and partners in crimes, cover-ups and civil liberties violations ---beginning with this rogue judge and public servant (self-servant) --Lawrence Riff-and his rogue judge and lawyer friends.

---Now guilty obsessed lawyers , who are in bed with guilty judges, can take a moment to relax---but comments posted are far from their biggest problem. The fact that they want comments deleted, pushed down etc. --says way more ---about their guilt and crimes perpetrated against the court and public--and says a lot about them..

Marika,

You need to stop being so bossy and controlling, Your comment was far from level headed and was actually quite divisive. This forum is not set up just for you, or just for your own convenience.

Your comment, is a prime example, why many people don't want to post on this forum. Although we expected that retaliation in the courtroom, or heckling on this forum, would only come from, either Judge Riff, someone in his circle, or someone in his circle, posing as a litigant, on this forum.

Personally, I have always appreciated the comments and know others who do, too. The comments are smart, instructive and very credible. They are also intensely shocking and heart wrenching. They demonstrate, just how many judges, insider lawyers and their client, have banded together, in the horrifying, stomach churning conduct, while suppressing the individual's civil rights.

The re-posting of the comments, has been effective. Judges, such as, Judge Riff, with obvious agendas, have gone to extreme lengths, to cause great injury to many, while then trying the muzzle them, twist the record and control the narrative.

An individual, within Judge Riff's inner circle, really does appear to be attempting to control the narrative on these pages, in order to distract from the comments, which are making these judges very nervous and jittery, because it exposes them. None of us, should play into their games, or allow them, to control their false narratives and indefensible conduct.

The lawyers who run these pages, don't seem to be working for the time being; while finally comments are not being wiped, at the request of these nervous individuals.

We need our voices to be heard. People with previously unheard voices and their supporters, are collectively gathering, throughout the world, while quite powerfully, shouting and repeating similar messages, that without justice, there will be no peace.

These demonstrators are repetitively, shouting similar messages, calling for for equality, accountability and justice; while they have been extremely effective, in their messaging. I have yet to witness, any of the demonstrators, telling another demonstrator, just how often they should shout out, or how often they should repeat their message. It is highly improbable, that any level headed person, would do this.

Posting, reposting, and arguing with others on this forum doesn’t bother Judge Riff, it just fills up the inboxes of people who AGREE that Judge Riff is a corrupt moron and must be brought to justice.

Please stop Repetitive posting and reposting. I’ve been ignoring the notifications because it’s gotten so repetitive.

Please post (and don’t repost or comment on your own posts! ) about the specific things Judge Riff has done to violate your rights AND what you have done, and are currently doing to hold him accountable.

I have reported him to the FBI, the CJP, the DA’s office and the State Bar. I have protested in front of the State Bar three times, and the Stanley Mosk Courthouse four or five times. I have spoken at the LA county Board of Supervisors Meeting 3 times.

I have to follow up on every one of my complaints and give the agencies the most recent developments/evidence of misconduct.

My goal is to file a federal lawsuit against Judge Riff and LA county in the next few months.

I post on here because I’m trying to connect with and encourage other level-headed individuals who would like to do more than post a complaint on this forum.

Seriously: whomever runs this page needs to clean up the repetitive and ranting comments. Judge Riff IS a terrible judge who should be recalled. He blatantly displays sexist and racist tendencies, and has a chip on his shoulder the size of a city block that is practically visible. He ogles, licks his lips, and winks at women sitting before him as attorneys, plaintiffs, respondents, and clerks. He is a danger, and department 2 is even creepier due to his presence. But people who need to know what a creep he is can’t see it on this page because of the psychotically repetitive postings, no doubt from yet another woman whose life he tried to destroy (or perhaps did destroy). For public interest purposes, please clean up this page of all comments from that repetitive poster! Block their IP address, so other people can stay informed!

DC Appeals Court, ordered Judge Emmet Sullivan, to explain his actions in Michael Flynn case--within 10 days of the order, because of the seriousness of the case and Michael Flynn's civil liberties--------while (appearing to be giving him 'an out' -to drop the case-when requesting his answer ) - but this highly compromised, judge, who has shown incredible bias, animus against Flynn, retained a high end law firm and lawyer, to help him with his explanation...while in a Petition for Mandamus, Michael Flynn has asked the Court of Appeals .....to order the district court to dismiss the criminal prosecution as requested by the government, and to also remove Judge Emmet Sullivan from the case............... --- I don't agree with Michael Flynn's politics--but Judge Emmet Sullivan, is highly compromised and has been railroading Michael Flyn. Sullivan's appointment of John Gleeson, after the DOJ recommend the case on Flynn be dropped----is just stunning. The appointment of Gleeson, is stunning and offensive, to the principle of courts as impartial arbiters. Gleeson, who worked at the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York with Loretta Lynch (later President Obama’s attorney general) and Andrew Weissmann (chief prosecutor on the Mueller probe that brought the Flynn case — and now a Biden for President fundraiser) — has co-written a Washington Post op-ed portraying the Justice Department’s dismissal motion as an "abuse of power."........ . The Appeals Court also cited **Rule 48(a); as well as this case: ***United States v. Fokker Servs., B.V., 818 F.3d 733, 740 (D.C. Cir. 2016)............ The fact that the court cited the Fokker case, may be significant, because it was one of the main cases cited by Flynn, in his Emergency Petition for Mandamus : *** I completely support Obama, but do not support judges, who breach their oaths, abuse their power and pubic trust, in glaring miscarriges of justice............... **In the 2016 ruling--United States v. Fokker Services B.V. ........ the D.C. Circuit granted a writ of mandamus against a district judge who refused to dismiss a case (on a deferred prosecution arrangement) because the judge thought the Justice Department was letting the defendant off too easily. The Fokker Court explained that, under Rule 48(a) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, "a judge has no power to deny a motion to dismiss charges.".............. The D.C. Circuit there elaborated that decisions to dismiss pending charges “lie squarely within the ken of prosecutorial discretion,” .....and that "judges may not substitute their view that a defendant should be prosecuted in place of the Justice Department’s determination that a case should be dropped....". ---The D.C. Circuit’s order that Judge Sullivan must respond cites Rule 48(a), along with Fokker..

Also send a copy to Governor Brown because he appointed Riff and needs to know that Riff is a nightmare on the bench and must be removed.

Judge Riff is deranged. He deliberately obstructs justice and embroils himself in each case, where he sides with the abuser every single time.

Judge Lawrence P Riff deliberately manipulates the Domestic Violence Laws and abuses his authority to inflict unbelievable sadistic coercive control over victims of domestic violence by deliberately mislabeling victims as abusers. He literally uses the very laws that are supposed to protect victims of domestic violence, to inflict massive amounts of suffering upon women and children who have already suffered so much at the hands of their abusers, in order to allow abusers to continue their reign of terror during and long after the divorce.

Where there is great suffering there is massive profit.

Judge Lawrence P Riff is a psychopath. He needs to be investigated, exposed, paraded out in the news media, put on trial for his crimes against the public.

Before he gets thrown in prison for the rest of his life for all the harm he has done to thousands of families, let’s make him famous.

Every judge in America and around the world needs to watch this man as his sins are exposed for the public to see on national television. All his victims needs to get on the stand, so that every judge in America gets the visual burned into their brains that one day they too will be indicted for their crimes if they betray the public trust and violate the law the way Judge Riff has.

We need to make an example out of him. Attorneys will use his last name like a verb when they are describing what it’s like when their clients rights are violated by a judge..

“Aww man, my client just got Riff’d”..

Seriously, Judge Lawrence Riff isn’t just an embarrassing stain on the California judiciary - he’s a real dangerous psychopath.

He is abusing his authority and being so brazen about it, it’s as if he is begging to get caught.

Psychopaths do love pushing the envelope, they love testing people and seeing what they can get away with and duping authorities.

This man is so dangerous and no one has done anything to stop him. The same he will bring to LA county when all this is finally exposed will be really tough for the community to swallow.. How is it possible that a psychopath- a complete sadist could be allowed to continue to destroy families and brazenly violate the law, unabated for years in front of SO MANY ATTORNEYS AND SHERIFFS DEPUTIES and OTHER JUDGES?!!!

Why is there no oversight?’

How much money must LA county bleed in lawsuits before they get their act together and make sure they actually protect the public from the predators on their payroll?

Wake up. This judge is truly out of his mind. I can’t even imagine the double life he must be leading!! If this is how he behaves in public, how deranged is he in his private secret life?!!

We all know that psychopaths lead double lives.
I won’t be long before the mask is ripped off and he pushes his luck and his arrogance too far and Riffs over the wrong person who knows the right people who will finally bring him to justice.

It just takes one victim to come forward with the right story that will interest the right politician and justice will be served.

2023 Judge Riff’s term is up.. he will no longer be on the bench, that’s for damn sure. Here’s hoping he will also be indicted by then.

Completely concur, with comments below and would only add, what type retaliatory tactics, smear campaigns, were designed, by these officials, after they were exposed by their victims: many who appear to be high intelligent pro se's?

Arguably, intelligent, female, pro ses, immediately had a target on their back, by this sexist, insecure, highly inept judge, before they even entered the courtroom.

These intelligent, female, pro ses, never stood a chance, in Judge Riff's courtroom-or those of his cronies ; while they should have have been guaranteed, a fair, equitable hearing, by a neutral, trier-of-fact, with rulings based on the evidence, law, equity and merits.

They had a right to expect, their case be adjudicated, by a judge, who had a scintia of understanding of family law, equity, ethics, right to a fair hearing; while Judge Riff seems to lack these qualities and lacks understanding ofhis obligations, as a judge and public servant.

File your civil rights and public corruption complaints with the FBI against this judge ASAP.
Judge Riff is a nightmare and belongs in federal prison for kidnapping children under color of law and obstructing justice in cases involving victims of domestic violence and child abuse.
If your case has been illegally dragged out for years and you have illegal restraining orders against you that prohibits you from contact with your children, and if your ex has failed to comply with mandatory disclosure requirements, in any case involving Judge Riff, file a civil lawsuit against the county and against judge Riff because he has no authority to act in excess of his authority and violate the law in favor of abusers.

Judge Riff must be held personally accountable for his color of law crimes.
The FBI must be altered about every case involving civil rights violations, malfeasance of office.. every time Judge Riff breaks the law.
Judge Lawrence Riff is a crook. He believes he is untouchable and that no one will hold him accountable, but he’s wrong.

Also research -- **Monell v. Department of Social Services of the City of New York and how it relates to 42 USC (SEC 1983.)


A Monell Claim is a claim against the government entity that employed the individuals who committed alleged civil rights violations.

In summary, the holding allows individuals to sue public entities (other than the state) for civil and constitutional rights violations under federal law (42 U.S.C. Section 1983).

In short, the doctrine of judicial immunit,y is meant to protect only judicial acts, which, by definition, are acts requiring judicial discretion,,,,. When a judge does not exercise judicial discretion,the policies supporting absolute immunity disappear....... A ministerial act requires no discretion, and while administrative, legislative, or executive acts require varying degrees of discretion, it is not judicial discretion merely because the actor is a judge......"

^Judge Riff indeed, appears to be a clueless idiot; even worse, many see him as being a corrupt, clueless
idiot.

^Being an" idiot"--is NO excuse for all the harm and civil liberties violations, which have been willfully, reckleely, perpetrated by Lawrence Riff.

^ Absolutely! Silence is NOT an option. Do not gravel to corrupt, 'on the take", incompetent, judges, such as Lawrence Riff. Stand your ground and continue to fight for justice, due process and for all of your constitutional rights! ..

....Judge Riff and his criminal enterprise, are mentally unstable, crooked psychopaths.

-- Normal, reasonable people, do not conduct themselves, intentionally harm others, or do each other's dirty work violate laws and ethics, the way Judge Riff and his criminal enterprise, of abusive thugs have done. .

.....It is intelligent, confident, self-represented, females, who speak up, against the injustices, who seem to terrify Lawrence Riff (his cronies) and/or get under his/their skin, because of all of Riff's and his cronies', inadequacies and mens rea of criminal activity.

..When these prop pers, properly cite CRC and/or CCP, shepardized law , settled case law, statutory authorities, Lexis Advanced, Thompson Reuters West Law, CEB's, 9th Circuit Jury Instructions, etc, Lawrence Riff will cut them off, ignore evidence based facts and the rule of law; because he is so inadequate and also appears to be "on the take" and seems to suffer from significant inadequacies , as a male, judge , public servant, lawyer and human being.

--- ..Lawrence Riff appears stunningly inept, incompetent, does NOT have any understanding of family law, state law, ethics, the constitution , federalism etc.and is too insecure, to even consider settled law cited by a pro her; he would rather rely on the false record, or corrupt buddy lawyers, with a wink and a nod.


. ...The protective mom's, fighting for their child/children, such as Marika, other mother's like her, and/or female documented abuse victims, fighting for their civil liberties and justice, are the heroes. .

.......The protective mom's, fighting for their child/children, female documented abuse victims, who have had to endure continued abuse, immeasurable harm, by Lawrence Riff, their abuser, his abusive lawyers', other corrupt judges', are strong and courageous, while bravely, rightfully , calling out these thugs, such as Lawrence Riff, who are small, low life, crooked, cowards. .

...Lawrence Riff, belongs in federal prison and so do all of his co-conspirators, for their litany of RICO, federal crimes and civil right's violations. ..

.....Let's remember the heroic mothers', tomorrow; remember protective mothers' such as Marika, who has tirelessly been fighting, to get her son back, while fighting for their constitutional rights' and liberties.. --Remember mothers who did everything to protect their children, while their ex. beat the sh* t out of her, and continued to perjure himself and call her a "liar"-until he had his tail between his legs, got caught-and Lawrence Riff curiously still defended him, while victim blaming the female victim.

.....- Let's remember these horrific, abusive, female judges, who Lawrence Riff is in bed with and who are miserable, low-life, amoral, sell-outs. --If these abusive, female judges are mothers' **(they all had mothers') --they should be even more ashamed of themselves, for how they have unconstitutionally, illegally, treated females/mothers, while engaging in harmful, criminal conduct, against the most vulnerable females, private citizens--while in cahoots with Judge Riff and the crooked attorneys', these crooked judges are in bed with. -

----- Again, Lawrence Riff and his cabal, all need to be in federal prison. There also needs to be serious accountability, by these thugs, while there also needs to be significant remedies/reparations, awarded to their victims'.

Judge Riff is now the head of the family court mafia in Los Angeles County. He is viciously corrupt and belongs in federal prison for the rest of his life.

He is a psychopath that lacks empathy and only cares about lining his own pockets and protecting the income stream for his fellow judges and favored attorney/cronies.

Riff is an accessory after the fact to so many color of law crimes committed against thousands of families in LA county and beyond.

In the next few years he will finally be thrown in prison along side Lee Baca and the ever growing number of judges and other public officials who are being indicted on federal public corruption and obstruction of justice charges.

Unfortunately the FBI is incredibly slow at bringing deviants this Riff to justice, but the public can do a lot to help.

File your complaints against Judge Riff with the FBI, commission of judicial performance and file lawsuits against him and the county for every color of law violations he had committed against you and you family.

The more complaints filed, the more the FBI has to go on to bring this predator to justice.

Do your part.

Ultimate remedies for the 'fixed' rulings, which have seemed to have taken place, in Lawrence Riff's courtroom, appear have been based on fraud on the court, material misrepresentations, cronyism, must be Set Aside , because these are invalid rulings.

If Lawrence Riff continues to slice and dice, evidence based facts, due proces, ethics and legal precedent, there will be continued grave harm and chaos, within the family law division, among other courtooms, engaging in cronyism , with Judge Riff and his buddies..

TARA READE-there will be many "TARA READES" and ^ Lawrence Riff can't continue to being his personal demons, in the courtroom, to retaliate against female abuse victims, of documented intimate partner violence and abuse --with documented, contemporaneous evidence, which he chooses to ignore, to protect the violent male perp. and/or or to help his buddy attorneys and judges. ....

......Because, Lawrence Riff, is the that corrupt and incompetant and appears that he could be "Bought, while lowering himself-- to that of a "street prostitute"--which is the level, his buddies have also lowered themseves to that a "street prostitute"--however, I don't want to insult "street prostitutes"--because Judge Lawrence Riff and his buddies are worse--a street prostitute never took an oath to the public--and is struggling to survive -abuse by males--while reprehensible, abusive males, such as Lawrence Riff **(AND ABUSIVE, CORRUPT- A** kissing FEMALE JUDGES )-WHO , are the lowest of low, males/females in society, lower themselves, to protecting the worst males of society , while blaming the females they have victimized.

__As to Tara Reade, more victims will likely come forward--just as those likely also victimized -in acts of recidivism--from violent males L:awrence RiFF has OUTRAGEOUSLY protected.

--Kudos to Washington Post, for aggressively publishing Tara Reade story, right from the beginning.

--Shame on Lawrence Riff and his buddies--who would not have any standards--if they didn't have double standards.

Thanks to this demon in a skin suit, I don’t know if my own dog whom I rescued from a street corner and loved dearly, is dead or alive. If you’re a woman, or a person of color, avoid him at all costs: he will not treat you like a human being, because he doesn’t think of you as one. God is watching you, Riff, even if court authorities aren’t.

As he is the head of the Family Courts in the LASC, he is the one tasked with investigating complaints against commissioners in the Family Courts. I complained about Commissioner Glenda Veasey of Torrance Courthouse Department J. Veasey is a monster who thinks nothing of violating basic constitutional rights.
On October 3, 2019, Veasey violated my due process rights and issued an order that has no basis in California law. That Veasey did these things has already been determined after a subsequent motion for reconsideration hearing by a different judge.
The Minute Order from the October 3 hearing says that my ex-wife was present for the hearing and that it was a hearing. Regardless, despite Veasey having violated the Constitutions of the U.S. and California, despite Veasey having issuing an unlawful order, and despite the Record explicitly saying it was a hearing at which only my ex-wife was present, the oh-so-sage Lawrence Riff decided that my ex-wife wasn't present and that it wasn't a hearing. He said that it was against Veasey's long-standing practice to hold ex parte hearings with one of the parties in her chambers. In so deciding, Riff implies that it is the custom and practice of Glenda Veasey to violate the 5th and 14th Amendments of the US Constitution and it is the custom and practice of Glenda Veasey to issue unlawful orders. The judicial officers of the LASC Family Courts are tyrants who freely violate the law with impunity.

I think that whomever runs this board should be more vigilant about clearing the rambling comments from what is obviously one very disturbed person. Judge Riff is incredibly biased and not good at his job per most of the reviews here, but those reviews are largely obscured because of the rambling and repeated comments. Perhaps that person is yet another Riff victim driven to instability, but it doesn't excuse the state of this page. Please remove those comments and block their server so that people looking for real advice can read the more measured and balanced reviews indicating that this is a judge to avoid.

I find Hon. Riff extremely unaware and lacking emotional intelligence in regards to domestic violence situations. If there is an Ex-parte where a child is being subjected to violence on an intimate partner's part, he denies it. He does not protect children.

I have seen this mainly if the offending party uses language such as "she is trying to deny father's rights and keep me from my child" with these types of statements, Hon. Riff immediately ignores all evidence of abuse.

In 2020 there is not room for this type of emotional insensitivity.

He needs to veer on the cautious side but I do not find that in any of the cases I've represented for either Father or Mother, he has made a reasonable decision.

This judge did not seem to want to hear testimony from a well-credentialed professional woman who had dealt with the same type of forgery from the defendant-husband in the case as the wife had - this is critical evidence to determine who was lying (he was). Is it because the witness was a female? This is the type of evidence a judge should dream of, to make his job easy, and yet, it seemed like he didn't want to hear it. Something is wrong with this picture.

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.
