Comment #: CA38791
Sacramento Law & Motion Dept 53 & 54 is lacking competent judges who will follow the law. Is it a result of being biased or carelessness?
What good is the law if a Judge fails to follow it? How much harm is the public going to tolerate from these judges?

Comment #: CA36895
Either no ability to think critically or too lazy to do. Don't even follow what the law says. Waste of bench

Complete imbecile. Unwilling to follow the law. Unwilling to engage in critical thinking. A complete and utter embarrassment to the bench.

So ignorant. No idea what's fair, just and unbiased under the law. Adheres to the official party line. Worthless on the bench. Worthless.
