Comment #: CA3889
California people should get rid of these bad judges, especially the ones who feel that they can do anything they like while on the bench.


Comment #: CA3427
I appeared before Judge Robinson on a Small Clains action which my Homeowners Association had appealed.

She had not read my complaint and she did not have the Civil Codes which were applicable to my case with her, she had to ask for them.

She did not address the issue and spent a lot of time on something she had no idea about. Homeowners Associations' accounting records.

I had given the applicable code in my complaint and she completely ignored it.

She needs to get her act together before appearing in Court and be conversant with the action she is supposed to be "judging".

She is a person of no integrity, apparently willing to make rulings she knows are incorrect to avoid making waves or displeasing her fellow judges. She is remarkably fluent in doublespeak.
