This sorry excuse of a judge is the worst (redacted by Ed.) Narcissist who doesn't know what is going on in his courtroom half the time. He expects everyone to tell the truth, but when social workers come in with blatant lies, he dismisses them and overlooks it. It's criminal! The way his operates i(redacted) and would never hold up in any other court. He is destroying families with his egotistical biased opinions instead of based on facts. He needs to be taken off the bench. Karma will catch up to him and the social workers (redacted).


Comment #: CA45024
In my opinion this judge is corrupted and does not follow the law. Violates your constitutional rights and discriminates against Native American Woman. The judge should be investigated for all the illegal judgements he has entered for his own personal greed and gain. He has resources but uses them for the wrong reasons.

This Judge is heartless. Does not care about the welfare or well being of children in the San Bernardino county area. My granddaugher was abused in a foster home and he moved her at his pace further endangering her life. I even submitted photos of her injuries and he still ruled in the favor of CFS. This is why so many children are dying in the custody of CFS.

He is there to take children even when their is no risk


Comment #: CA22330
Does not give due process and always rules in favor of CFS. You are guilty in his opinion even if facts say different
