What others have said about Hon. Elaine Lu


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA10461
In her haste to lighten what is admittedly a heavy case load, Judge Lu denies almost every ex parte request to advance a hearing date that is closer than the current FIVE MONTH BACKLOG on the CRS. I have seen her reject more than 10 such requests during 5 days I spent at her 1:30 pm law and motion ex parte time. It is a travesty. Her complete disregard for the legitimate serious adversity established by a party through admissible evidence is shocking. She has Violated Canons 1, 2, and 3 in my case.


Comment #: CA9875
Very partial judge who is biased against the pro se litigants. She has deliberately made an erroneous, unjust ruling despite the governing statutes and controlling authorities.


Comment #: CA9494
Very fair judge. At least she takes the time to read the motions and decide upon it.
