Oh, THERE we go! A now-retired judge is part of a vast conspiracy with other judges, and the Pope, and the "Globalists"; probably the Illuminati, and their Martian reptile alien overlords, too! The moon must be full!

Stepping down in December will save the lives of so many children who have suffered at the hands of this viper. I personally know of a child who was forced by TTL to live with one parent thousands of miles from the other parent during a painful custody battle. This despite the child clearly and repeatedly stating that this was not wanted. The child is now an adult, has PTSD and has been emotionally crippled by a misguided TTL, biased beyond belief. TTL’s judge will sentence him to hell where he will suffer for his innumerable sins. He deserves no praise, he deserves no tributes, he deserves only rebuke.

I am glad to see the LASC rid of one of its worst. I complained in late March about the Glenda Veasey, the Bad Witch of Dept. J in Torrance. This POS Lewis ignores my complaint for months and when I began to complain about the lack of response from Lewis to his superiors in the beginning of July, suddenly there is a letter dismissing my complaints that was back-dated to May 10. NOBODY saw this letter until July 10. And the damned back-dated letter ignored all of my complaints and instead consisted of Lewis' cherry-picked critique of my performance in the transcripts. According to Lewis, if a crappy commissioner like Glenda Veasey is violating your rights, you have to respectfully grin and bear it. GTFO Lewis!

I isn't anyone spreading the news on this site that Judge Thomas Trent Lewis is stepping down on December 18th?! Personally, I believe he is being forced out after that failed family law town hall meeting that I attended earlier this year. Not only did he show his truly paternalistic and chauvinistic side, but he victim-blamed! He was extremely condescending to all of the women in the room, including a female lawyer. He is what's wrong with the family courts. His beliefs permeate the way women and children's claims of abuse are dismissed and denied. Meanwhile, children's lives are being taken in the adjudication of these abusive cases in California. I say good-riddance to bad rubbish. Don't let the doorknob hit you on your way out, dishonorable Judge Lewis!

A huge ego in a bad suit that has no business sitting on any bench where buses don't stop. Just a horrible person lacking so much as a scintilla of humanity. 170.6 - early and often.

Lewis is equally abusive to men and women. He wants the conflict. That give him his power.

Lots of opinions so I will stick with some facts:

He gave generous custody to a father who was criminally convicted for domestic violence twice ( second one while still on probation for guest). A 730 report from a triple board certified psychiatrist he noted as biased, a report which strongly urged to protect the very young child from the batterer.

The father was smartly advised by his very high profile lawyer to talk a lot about God. I was advised that the judge was a born again Christian which is why my ex suddenly believed in God.

Church and state are separate and certainly should not be used to fog up a lengthy abuse record.

This court failed to protect a very young girl who now years later is accumulating severe damage to her court appointed abuse.

His inclination is toward the party with the most expensive attorneys. Judge Lewis will drain your resources, refusing to make any rulings. "Go into the hallway and work it out." He will continue cases forever. If you dare demand a trial he will make orders that will drain you financially. Only the attorneys make out in here. He could care less about the parties or the children. Do not dare to go Pro Per if you run out of money, he will punish you.
One of the laziest judges I have ever seen in 25 years.

Judge Lewis is a great judge if you want to wipe out the other party financially. He loves to punt and continues cases more than other judges. He keeps the lawyers on the meter. This is why all of the big whig attorneys use him. They made him judical officer of the year previously. He is clever, micromanages your life and hands out all of your hard earned money to experts and lawyers he likes. Again a great judge if you want to wipe out the other party. A terrible judge for tax payers and innocent kids.

In my opinion, this judicial officer should not be on the bench. In one case, he completely ignored prevailing case law and the facts of the case that do not fit into his rulings even though those facts are material. He renders decisions which are needlessly very costly to litigants appearing before him. He cites cases to support his rulings which actually hold just the opposite to what he claims. He appears very biased, such that once he makes up his mind as to who he wants to prevail, there is no swaying him. He does not have the proper judicial temperament and should be avoided at all costs.

Please note the time between the other person's review and mine. In that time Judge Lewis' head has swelled to epic proportions and he is now so arrogant as to be insufferable. Don't bother expressing an opinion in his court, no matter how accurate. He is not interested in any opinion other than his own.

I have known Thom for a number of years and he has demonstrated integrity, discipline, fair mindedness, balance. He also has insight on legal issues. He is discerning in evaluating people.
