Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA11296
Rating:1.0

Deranged, narcissist ruling over families with minor children. Misogynist. Always rules for the Abusive father when the abusive father lies about the custodial Mom. He sends custodial mothers with children, that both child claims and mother has for years substantiated, to Diana Herrington, who is a tranny, yes, a fake woman. Fake women hate real women. Diana always writes for the abusive father against the protective mother. Father claims Parental Alienation, every pedophiles favorite term, against the mother. The tranny sees facts produced that father is abusive, zero history of mother being an "Alienator." Herrington Tranny sends her report late, to the mother on the Friday before Monday's hearing. Mother has no time to reply to the report. Mothers asks judge for time to reply. He yells, not says, YELLS, "NO!"
This man is psychotic. He is also very likely part of the pedophile ring that my daughters father is in. As well, it looks like his attorney is probably in it, too. They're all weirdos, that is for sure. They act and talk like they have severe sexual addiction. They all talk real ugly about women, indicative of immaturity >> points to pedophilia every time.
I hope I see Wells on the news going to prison with my ex.
One more important note: No one at the courthouse in Indio uses any kind of authority, subjectivity or discipline on judges under their authority. No agency at all helps people shoulder the burden of this psychotic in a black robe.

Judge Wells is incapable of addressing any case to any relevant law standard. He literally uses the court room as his own torture chamber against women and children and is fixated on teaching litigants that HE has the ultimate power, playing God and desecrating the christian faith. He plays insane games with litigants and those attorneys that have the guts to question his amoral demeanor and behavior on the bench and persecutes and punishes them for years. Those attorneys who know Judge Wells' bias and prejudice to certain segments of the population know how to play to these biases at every proceeding. Watching these attorneys in action is like watching a Judge Judy show as everyone is aware of what buttons to push in order to get the desired reaction. A reaction that does not adhere to any law or legal standard. There is no place in family law for that type of mentality.

Judge Wells is one of the worst Family Law judges that has ever graced the Indio court. His religious bias comes out in every ruling as does his bias towards women. He fails to adhere to any required statutory procedures, issues capricious rulings that are not based on any foundation or evidence except his perception. Judge Wells believes it's a game to torture children by placing them in heinous circumstances to teach the other parent a lesson, instead of adhering to the law. He has literally put the Indio family law court on the map by issuing the most heinous rulings that ever come out of this court day after day after day. His biases are well known and attorneys who want to win a case play towards these biases. Malicious, despicable and oppressive does not even come close to describing the temperament of this judicial officer who is a disgrace to the bench and everything the law stands for.

worst judge ever. biased. exhibited anger when it wasn't warranted. said that we'd defer to the mental health professional for direction and then back tracked saying 'it wasn't going fast enough.' Avoid him at all costs. He was papered by the DA's for dropping a sex crime against a child becuase they couldn't work with him in criminal. Now he is in family? He needs removed.

He spent two years on the criminal bench, but is most comfortable presiding over family law matters. Following form and filing timely are absolutely critical.
