What others have said about Hon. C. Edward Simpson



Comment #: CA10417
"Judge" C. Edward Simpson did everything he could possibly do to trip me up during trial on behalf of his friends at LAUSD. Post-trial he could not do second-grade math. His judgement amount did not match the repeatedly changing amount, not "sum certain", the amount LAUSD was finally asking for. In my Motion in Limini, LAUSD had promised in Discovery not to use non-Gregorian calendar, extraterrestrial, "Fiscal Year Salary Review". Simpson allowed them to use it anyway and based his judgement amount on them with 4 other pieces of secondary fraudulent evidence. He also ignored my twice formally subpoenaed opposing witness from attending trial plus an additional witness and documentation.

Very Good and intelligent judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA7714
The judge was reported to the Commission on Judicial Performance on 9/28/15 - called an "ossified numbskull" "benighted imbecile" after being reversed on a writ of mandate and having a decision repudiated by an impartial judge. A total fraud.

I had a one day bench trial for fraud in front of Simpson. Very fair if you are too. Don't try to be something you're not or argue something that isn't there.


Comment #: CA2256
He does not read filed papers in-depth and makes rulings based on a superficial impression of the case
