New Allegations of Misconduct Against Matthew J. Gary
http://sacramentocountyfamilycourtnews.blogsp...
In response to our exclusive news story about the disqualification of current Sacramento County Family Court Supervising Judge Matthew J. Gary, the Sacramento County Family Court News & Blog received a number of emails from family court staff, litigants and attorneys.
Several readers asked to see Gary's full response in the disqualification proceeding against him, and read the complete court order removing him from the Saunders case. We also received tips and a cache of court records alleging other misconduct by the judge. This story will be updated after we verify and review trial court transcripts, court filings and orders.
Gary's violations of
judicial conduct
standards resulted
in his removal from
the Saunders case.
Meanwhile, the complete response of Family Court Supervising Judge Matt Gary to the Robert Saunders disqualification motion can be viewed here.
Page one of Judge Xapuri B. Villapudua's order removing Gary from the Saunders case is here. Page two is here.

This judge took jurisdiction in a case that was dismissed and both parties moved to another state and (were legal residents of that state) to reconcile. When the wife moved back, he said he had jurisdiction because there was a former case, even though she had only been back 3 months (not the required 6). He also told the husband, "if you don't like my ruling, vote differently in the next election!" then hung up on the husband. The husband was never served for any of the cases, yet the judge did not bother to look into this and of course ruled in favor of the wife, who submitted false documents and told many lies. A judge is supposed to be fair and impartial and listen to all sides of the story. This is clearly not the case, as anything I've read thus far on every website has said almost the same thing. There's got to be a way for dads (since they are usually the ones given no consideration) to get together and file suit?

I pray Gray is removed and I am glad to see Gary punished for his misconduct. This Judge is always on a high horse and should be removed from the bench for being insentive and not taking the time to review evidence . I was told by Gary children were expensive because I requested him to change the court order to having my child enrolled in a school in Sacramento since the father resides in Sacrsmento so I could have all day care/ transportation through a subsidized program. I am a single patent and have another child from another relationship who is special needs and tired to explain to the courts that it was a hardship for me to commute to Roseville every Tuesday from Elk Grove and a costly 100.00 a day for 1 child to receive transportation from Roseville to child care every Tuesday. I have more to add and have complained to courts about Gary and his past conduct, not to mention he stripped me of custody for 2 years for no showing, which I did show up to court to prior days before my hearing letting the courts know that my father died and to request another hearing date but was told by Gary I needed to get permission from him to attend my Father's hearing. Gary also told be that I was unfit to be a parent and applauded the father for having bad behavior such as calling my employer to get me fired from work and moving without notifying me, hanging out in front of my home and making false police reports/ cps reports, and filing false contempt orders along with his attorney which he was aware of this but nothing happened. Gary is very controlling over my case I filed for a restraining order and while it was being heard in another department Gary came down to this department and told this demanded this judge to send the restraining order back to his department, when I arrived to Gary's department he told me I potathic and advised me that If I did not drop my modification for for custody that he would drop my restraining order because I could not have to different orders being heard so close together and when I agreed to drop my modification for custody he deined my restraining order and ignored the evidence I had of the father stocking/ harrassing me by following me on the freeway and riding on my bumper and hanging in ftont if my resdience taking photos and blocking my vechile. I was simply told by Gary the father has a right to harrass me and that it was not his fault but my fault choosing him to father my child so deal with it.Please contact let me know how to contact you because I would love for my case to reviewed by another judge.

Does any one know the chain if command I've would need to follow to file a formal complaint on judge Gary and have family court car heard by different judge? I have an open case in family court in which thus judge resides and was appalled at this judges lack of concern for the best interest of my child. I am representing myself..pro per...and it was obvious from day one this judge did not want to be bothered with it as he did not go over any papers filed and pulled my son from my care unwilling giving him back to his neglectful drug addicted mother until meditation and court...which has been put of three times suggest sure to the respondent not showing. When she finally did show at the last court date she demanded our son giving copies of a invalid Ro which she filed over a year ago but never served me? Officers were called by get to my home to get our son but it was determined by them it was in his best interest to stay with me...the officer sent me a personal email starting the restraining order she has been using was never valid...there for there is no current custody order until final judgment...I tried to inform this judge of this and summit proof as my son was visibly upset not wanting to go back to his mother but judge Gary refused to look at my paper work...saying he wasn't changing any orders?? There are no valid orders regarding custody? I am fearful of the outcome with this judge and would like to voice my concerns to a higher authority...can anyone help point me in the right direction???

At the local level, the chain of command is Christina Volkers, the court executive officer for Sacramento County Superior Court, and the Presiding Judge Laurie Earl. At the state level, the Commission on Judicial Performance is responsible for the oversight of judges. At the federal level, the U.S. Department of Justice has a public integrity section and a civil rights section. I have heard that Gary and the court are under investigation by the FBI for the misuse of federal funds and violating the civil rights of court users. The family court is run for profit by the bar association, which makes it an organized criminal enterprise under federal law. Contact them as well.

I am so sorry to hear about your case. I have a severe case of Parental Alienation. Maybe one of the worst in Sac County History.
I was a stay at home mom and left my ex. I ended up in a shelter and represented myself in pro per. My ex tried to get a restraining order under a different judge and his lies were exposed. He then used his scandalous attorney, David Karabinus to find a way around my assigned judge to get Matt Gary. He is a scandalous, heartless man who is fed by money and power to destroy lives. He gave me ex both of our homes and full custody of my children on NO grounds. They have stripped from everyone who is in my life and he has no concern for justice or the best interest of the children. There is no law practiced in his courtroom. I have brought my story to city council and have received support to look into having him removed from the bench! I would suggest getting connected with Fathers 4 Justice! They are amazing and have vast knowledge of the system and Gary. Please contact Donald Tenn and the organization. They will give you much needed direction. God Bless and keep fighting for your little angel.
