What others have said about Hon. Andre De La Cruz



Comment #: CA41097
Contrary to numerous case law he ordered that a child's therapist (hired by a controlling stepdad of extremely questionable character) dictate when she can see her grandmother. A judge is not allowed to relinquish judicial authority, especially to a treating therapist. After his ruling this 12 year old child failed classes in school, wet her bed/pants regularly, fought with friends and became extremely antisocial, inhibited and very troubled. He basically sentenced her to live in a Jim Jones environment with no contact with the one person in the world she could trust. He definitely belongs in traffic court


Comment #: CA40031
Doesn't know the law so he cannot follow it. Should never have been appointed a judge dealing with peoples property and children. This Judge is rude and interrupts litigants while they are talking. He was relocated to traffic so at least they got him out of family law finally.


Comment #: CA36994
Does not follow the law. This Judge makes our judicial system look bad and should never have been judge. This judge refused to allow a father to see his child, makes children cry, makes rulings without due process.
