California's Chief Justice Ordered to Answer Federal Court for Family Court Vexatious Litigant Orders - All Eyes on Santa Clara and Contra Costa Counties
First California's Highest Judge, Cantil- Sakauye, had to answer for her lavish shopping and security expenditures, paid for by California Tax Payers.
Next Cantil- Sakauye was explaining the traffic court scandal, which cost Californians millions in amnesty programs, after it was found Cantil- Sakauye had ignored years of of complaints related to traffic court personnel and judges reported to be engaging in socioeconomic bias in traffic cases in Southern California.
Then Cantil - Sakauye was explaining why during her oversight and management of California's courts, she failed to assure that the Commission on Judicial Performance disciplined judge misconduct in millions of California court cases each year, which caused the state legislators to order an audit of the Commission on Judicial Performance in June 2016.
Now Cantil - Sakauye has been ordered by a Federal Court to explain what the hell California's family courts are doing with regard to the vexatious litigant statute.
Cantil- Sakauye's gross mismanagement of tax payer funds and sheer incompetence in managing the state's court system should give rise for her removal.
A current investigation is underway to determine just how much Cantil- Sakauye has cost California tax payers by being so incompetent, or as many claim,: corrupted by the status quo system. where Judges and lawyers are running amok in family courts.
Before Cantil- Sakauye starts rushing for a tax funded golden parachute retirement package, a federal court has ordered her to answer a complaint related to the state's use of the vexatious litigant statute in family law cases.
Coupled with the Federal Court Ruling, released on October 17, 2016, is a private media investigation of Santa Clara, Contra Costa and San Mateo Counties, which all appear to be overreaching in using the statute in family divorce cases, causing massive violations to Due Process. The investigation also shows gross mismanagement of judicial administrative duties and inflated fees and costs being charged to self- represented parties in divorce cases. If this investigation produces information demonstrating administrative deficiencies, then not only would counties be susceptible to federal prosecution, so would individual judges. Cantil- Sakauye is going to have a difficult time convincing federal authorities otherwise, just like she was unable to in the traffic court complaint.
A closer look also seems to indicate that much of California's court problems arise from the failure of state funded watchdog agencies, and the State Bar , to address attorney and judge misconduct. A state audit already blew the top off the State Bar's deficiencies, the recent audit of the Commission on Judicial Performance is expected to do the same. It has been clear to litigants that attorneys and judges have been imposing misconduct on their cases for decades, and many complaints of such have gone ignored. The state audit will bring the roosters home to roost and judges who failed to address rampant attorney misconduct, and conduct of their fellow judges will soon face the bright light of public scrutiny.
The timely conversion of the District Court's ruling combined with the media investigation could open up thousands of the state's family law cases, where thousands of people , usually women or the poorer members of society, may have been denied access to the courts and fair hearings in their divorce cases for decades. If this should happen, the economic impact to the state could reach in the billions, and individual counties could be bankrupted by class action or federal lawsuit cases.
