Hogue is one very bad apple. What she says and does in her courtrooms in terms of anti social behavior (where is she located now as she seems to be on the run)is no different than the vulgar abuses that are happening in the U.S. Crown Heights, NY for example, France, UK and more. Her sick behavior towards a variety of races must be stopped. Hogue needs to be STOPPED AND NOW.

Looks older than she actually is due to her fillers and other face work. Saw her on the cover of a lawyer magazine and plenty of retouching. She is quite stupid as a matter of FACT. What bores one incredibly is that she likes to talk politics and of her family of whom I assume likes to avoid her as a matter of FACT. She acts very conniving and moronic in court. I had thought at first that she must be high on something because she is clearly not right in the head when speaking. Who knows. Maybe just a sign of aging. Avoid at all cost. Extremely stupid

This is not a Fairy Tale. This is what occurred before the "Honorable"(can't believe it should be before her name)Judge Amy Hogue. She awarded to six parasites over 1 million dollars for "destroying" a home and living "rent free" for YEARS. It's apparent that she felt that they were highly deserving of such an award. Just an example of what this very sick individual is capable of doing. These parasites bore holes into ceilings and walls, bashed in doors, murdered animals and thru their carcasses about the property, caused flooding and encased the exterior in trash- like a dumpsite. At the end she had a good laugh in court and offered the crook opposing counsel her opinion as how to collect a judgment. On occasion I would see Hogue's manic face in a court hallway and pity this miserable heartless human for being so rotten and vile. A perfect example of a bad seed.

Appeared before Judge Hogue a few times when she was in Writs and Receivers in Dept. 86. I was expecting the worst based on her reputation, and because I subbed in on the case didn't have an opportunity to 170.6 her. But you know what? I thought she was ok. She seemed to understand the issues, read the papers, and asked the right questions during argument. We lost, but it wasn't a shock. I thought her demeanor was fine.

She needs re educating if that is at all possible. In her case maybe not because she certainly appears extremely disturbed.

Next she is Dept. City Atty. material. You mean those saps that threaten and lie and steal- I guess that she would be good at this task. I wish she would go and inquire as to a position over in that cesspool of mean misfits. She would be a good match over there.

I'm amazed by the negative comments, which look like they were all written by the same person. I had a difficult case before her in Civil Complex and came away thinking, wow, this is one of the best judges I've ever seen. She's DCA or federal-bench quality (the best federal judges). Nice sense of humor, works hard, has read every jot of the moving papers, separates the wheat from the chaff, and is always available by phone to resolve a problem before it consumes too much time and paper. (She says "I'm a concierge judge.") Judge Hogue keeps control of her courtroom without being draconian, and is scholarly but practical. She doesn't seem to have a dog in the hunt philosophically -- she follows the law and the code (but is flexible on the rules where it makes sense). Refreshing! I would take her again any time, on any kind of case.

She has a nice, low-key sense of humor, ran her courtroom efficiently, was patient with counsel, was always up on the moving papers and had read the cases herself rather than relying on research attorneys, and overall stacks up as extremely bright and well-prepared. I would take her in a heartbeat on any case, any time -- but especially in the Complex court.

Nothing honorable about this judge, she was a complete joke. She based her decision on hearsay and hypotheticals. She made absurd comments and basically agreed with opposing counsel after it was pointed out they had the facts wrong. 170.6 if this moron is assigned, she has no business deciding cases.

When you think of the name "Amy Hogue" it conjures up all that is wrong with Los Angeles. Its individuals like this that have helped destroy what could have been a world class city. Open your eyes to what this city has become. Several trillionaires with their names atop buildings to memorialize their worth, bureaucrats that care only about "today" and "feeling good" about their satiated filled bellies and four walls filled with worthless Chinese manufactured junk. A former middle class now sleeping on tents on the 101 Fwy. and all major streets in the downtown area. Yes, you Ms. Hogue are responsible for this. You and your smug attitude. You and your ignorant analysis of law and your blatant disregard of all that is good. You have created a Holocaust for business in Los Angeles. You are no better than that silly man with the little mustache who praised the Aryan race.

Judge Amy Hogue is virulently prejudiced and seem unfit to serve as an arbitrator of justice. She is openly prejudiced, does not know or follow the law, and is quite insulting towards the party she seems not to favor. She was appointed by the worst governor in California history, so it is not surprising that she turn out to be the worst judge in California history.

FYI: Single family dwellings are not covered by LARSO. To determine relocation benefits, it's an Administration Process determined by the L.A. Housing Dept. NOT BY A JURY OR A TRIBUNAL. The tenant needs to be a PAYING TENANT and submit documents to the L.A. Housing Dept. Then and only then is it decided if there are any relocation benefits forthcoming. Juries do not decide LAWS, they decide FACTS. Read up on the Rent Stabilization Law before shooting from the hip.

Judge Hogue is generally pleasant enough, but she thinks she doesn't have to read the briefs. She rules on critical issues from the seat of her pants, often reversing herself mid-stream. She apparently views herself as the civil defendant's last line of defense, ruling again and again for the corporate position, often with no legal authority to support her. When a judge in a contested factual matter asks you, "Do you expect me to believe that the witness is lying?" how do you respond? "In your case, your honor, no"? It seems she believes that company employees always and only tell the truth.

Judge Hogue is a disgrace to the court, the judicial system, to society and to the many lives she has probably ruined in her time on the bench. She has abused her power, she has abused the idea of fairness and the fulfillment of justice which should be her job. She is so much like a mad dictator, flouting the laws, defying logic, abusing litigants, creating her own personal laws, being openly prejudiced. What standards does one have the fulfill to be a judge? they should be sound of mind, which she clearly is not, they should be fair, which she is not, they should follow the law, which she does not. She should act respectfully and treat others with dignity, which she does not. She resembles so much the ill mannered young child who was never taught right from wrong. I feel that people like her, in the positions that they hold, abuse us and our system of law, and will lead it to it's degradation into chaos and lawlessness. She is a criminal on the inside, destroying the system of justice from the inside rather than from the outside. Weep for this country if people like her are allowed to continue their reign of tyranny and abuse and thievery.

Abuse of discretion and to be honest she is a "leftist"- unless it comes to her and her husband's wallet- he is a class action atty. so you know where her head is at. She should be an atty. for a radical leftist organization- Berkeley style- or perhaps Chicago !

She does not even deserve "one star." I am not an atty. but I know about laws and municipal codes. My case was an eviction with tenants who have been sitting for years without paying rent. I am the plaintiff. Judge Amy, failed miserably in understanding rent control laws- even when explained to her "like a toddler" she failed to grasp and feigned an illness during the trial in order to take a long break. I believe that her clerks in the backroom (of which they are not actual attys.) decide her cases and then she simply signs the judgment. It's horrendous that she allow to remain on the bench. She should resign with honor before she is recalled. Yes, this should be the very next step. JUST HORRIBLE.

Having read the other comments, I was very apprehensive about an approaching civil trial set for her department. A few weeks before trial, we had a MSC which she conducted in her chambers.
In a nutshell, she handled it fairly, evenhandedly and with both firmness and reserve. When she was unfamiliar with a point of law, she took the time to talk to counsel and get their views. She even made a long distance phone call to a distant party.
The case settled - probably at the right amount. It was a job well done.

I agree with the last rating of 1.3. She is clueless as to the. My client charged with misd. 422 and was still on juvy probation until 25 for 664/187. Client did NOT testify yet she allowed "victim" to tell jury she was scared of client b/c he was on probation for attempted murder! Judge said before trial, and I quote, "I don't see how you have a defense to this case." Jury came back NG and her mouth dropped to the floor. Only credit I give her is she didn't violate my client for another misd. PV though she could have said, "well, maybe not BARD, but I FIND by preponderance, he violated probation..." She didn't. Even she's not that bad.

Amy Hogue is one of the worst judges in the world. She was a civil lawyer for some big firm for years and she should have stayed there. In criminal matters, she is a total buffoon, a moron, a cretin, a rubber-stamp for the DA, an unmitigated disaster. She does not know the rules of evidence and she is incapable of handling even the most minor piece of litigation.
