My intention is to focus my energy and time on other pursuits.
But your comments were so kind, I am compelled to say a brief thank you.
Also, I received an inquiry about how to complain about an errant commissioner. I wrote a response and then realized it would be easy to add that response here. So here it goes:
One avenue is to file a complaint letter with the commissioner’s presiding judge. When your complaint is answered inadequately, file a complaint with the CJP.
You can also file a claim, as you found in the link http://lacountydca.info/tsSueGovt.html
. But judges have absolute immunity over issues where they have jurisdiction and the error was non-administrative. In practice, judges are given immunity for all wrongs they commit, the vast majority of the time.
My greatest success was trying them in the court of public opinion. Print the facts of your case. WordPress will give you a free website and is easy to use. Be careful to avoid saying anything defamatory. Stick to facts. Not opinions. Label suspicions as thus. Attribute statements. Cite cases or print transcripts. There is an absolute litigation privilege. Anything said in court can be reprinted with an indication of who said it and in what proceeding. For example, you would not write “Commissioner Friedenthal was biased and embroiled against me.” Instead you might write “Commissioner Friedenthal said on the record that he was reading my posts on CourthouseForum.” Then give a date of the hearing and the case number.
This is not legal advice. This is information I learned while studying journalism at Colorado State University.
Maybe the most important thing you can do is to meet other victims of court abuse. Choose your friends carefully. Ask to read their court documents. Use discernment.
It is uplifting when other people know you are speaking the truth. Jesus said “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20) Thank you to my friends who gathered to do His will. God Bless.
