What others have said about Hon. Brian D. Saunders



Comment #: CA10784
Hon Saunders was a great man the couple times I appeared before him with my family problems, very fair man very honorable man. I was taken aback to learn of his passing today in his former court room. Very sad news San Bernardino lost an amazing judge.


Comment #: CA9934
Judge Saunders is not an honorable man. Due to a clerical error I was not present at my hearing yesterday with my soon to be x wife, and Mr. Saunders stated that there was sufficient evidence to grant my wife her 5 year restraining order request. If Mr. Saunders had actually bothered to read her complaint against me in the restraining order request he would have seen the huge red flag with the inconsistency of my wife's story and he would not have granted her request. I'm going to make it my personal mission to get Mr. Saunders removed from his bench.

Judge Brian D. Saunders is an arrogant self absorbed weak man. Confirmed by his act of parading himself between his alter and his clerk while he rules on matter with complete disregard to the law or the reports before him. Instead, Brian D. Saunders do so to overcome his weaknesses. It appears obvious that unless he fulfills his self worth he stands alone. He sends litigants to mediation and orders supervised monitors yet, has no regard for substance of their finding.

If you want to discover the true character of man, place him in a position of authority. Saunders is not worthy of a position with such high esteem. He is in fact a man without an identity who has lost his way and I'm certain feels empty. Pray for him.


Comment #: CA8983
This Judge has a God complex, and doesn't listen to professionals, like court counselors, and Doctors. But makes up his own ridiculous theories that he makes up in his own mind. And it almost seems like he has his mind made up before the trial even starts. I've sat and watched him ridicule and belittle someone even lawyers in every case that I watched him do. There wasn't one case that he was a nice human being to everyone in the court room. He even made fun of my Traumatic Brain Injury that I got in the war during our trial. He is a real charmer that guy.
