No worries - she's gone for good. But let's face it, the rest of them are not any better and if any of them are reading this I have only one question: "WHY DO YOU THINK YOU DO NOT NEED TO READ ANY COURT DOCS IN THE FILES????!" They all come in and wing it every time. They have the files there next to them for posterity and the dust on them blows around the courtroom every time they crack one open.

It looks like it has been a long time since any comments were posted on this site. I was perusing the SCC Judicial website, and it looks as if Judge Zepeda no longer hears family court cases. Can anyone confirm that? It was my understanding that she is up for re-election in 2010. I just want to make sure there is an effort to keep her off the bench in family court if there is any possibility she is still involved in this department.

My lengthy experience in Family Court has left me with the awareness that this most impactful area of the court system is allowed to function and operate in darkness. Family Court captures little attention and little oversight. Judges routinely issue orders having nothing to do with Family Law. In my experience I discovered that the outcome that the Judge wanted to achieve was simply manipulated and caused to occur through an inexplicable series of orders designed to produce the sought after outcome. The outcome that I believe was desired by the Judge in San Francisco was simply to get the case out of his court.
He accomplished this through a "starve-out"....My ex-spouse is a health care professional earning well over $500,000 a year. The Judge (initials PM) refused to enforce support orders despite non-payment for over a year and a half--It goes without saying that a custodial parent receiving no support has no capacity to deal with the implications of court...you are much more concerned with the day to day struggle to keep your child fed.
I am convinced that much of what has been described as judicial arrogance and incompetence would be dramatically changed if we installed video systems in court rooms rather than inaccessible transcriptionists. The record that would be a part of a video system would provide a far more telling record of how parties and counsel are actually treated in court.---
If anyone reading this ever finds themself in Judge "PM's" Court in SF---I wish you luck--you will need it----

Wow. If this Judge Zepeda is as bad as everyone says she is, she needs to be reported to the Commission on Judicial Performance. Just talking and complaining will not get results.Stand up for yourselves people and take back your rights.

I don't know what's going on here, but I didn't like this judge because as hard as my husband tried to have more visitation with his son(another women). This judge was rude. She didn't let my husband say a word. I figured because the atty was pregnant as well as my stepson's mother, that she just gave it to them. He just asked for more time with his son. He asked for joint custody. She gave him every other weekend and then 30 days in the summer. That is not enough. She was very biased. My husband's in the military, so his son only gets to see him when he is home. Its ridiculous that there are so many men out there who don't really care about their kids and she's giving them breaks, but a man who will do any and everything for his kid she treats him like nothing.

Here was my experience with Zepeda...I am a single mother with a Special Needs child. My Special Needs child and I were left homeless and in poverty by Judge Zepeda, in spite of my ex making $100,000/year. Yes, you read that right. This is a person who cares about children? This is a person who is "fair"? What's so fair about breaking Disability Laws and a child paying for it?

Zapeda is simply a sociopath. If you dont like her, you can find someone to run against her. She continues to be reappointed as she comes up unopposed every time. mostly because any respectable attorney doesn't want this job.

Abolutely HORRIBLE!! She refused to adopt the 730 recommendation and stated that she "Just didn't want to" when I asked for a reason why she refused to give my daughter back after I had been cleared of all allegations. She tampered with the record (FELONY) and had the reporter take out her ILLEGAL reason and I had no chance on appeal. I have spoken to several lawyers who have consistently refused to allow Hendrickson to hear ANY of their cases. I was told by a former senior state senator that he thought that what Hendrickson did was illegal. Today my daughter has lived six years without her father, half brother, or family and has become alienated by a pathological mother as determined by the 730 evaluator. The child has been self mutilating and experiencing suicidal ideation and hearing voices that tell her to harm or hurt herself as a result of Elizabeth Hendrickson's ill founded judgment. STAY AWAY FROM THIS CRIMINAL BENCH OFFICER....

The REAL problem here is that the Family Court is being dominated by LGBT activists who want to destroy traditional family structure and it's all with the blessing and protection of Gov Jerry Brown.. This is why the Family Court is rife with unconstutional, criminal, incompetent, lazy and biased individuals such as Tara Flanagan, Elizabeth Hendrickson, and Dr Phillip Montes (to name a few). We and our childrem are in a cultural war and these lesbian bench officers and others have no accountability and shared a "Taliban" mentality against the heterosexuals. There are many lawyers who I've spoken to that have shared this opinion with me but cannot pubilcally state their opinion. These bad officers are frequently and consistemtly complained about for everything listed in this thread. They are protected by Brown and are merely hidden away in Civil or Crim Court until things cool off and then moved right back into Fam Court. YOUR WASTING TIME COMPLAINING TO THE JUDICIAL COMMITTEE !! If You REALLY want to effect fundamental change in CA for family rights then WE MUST CUT THE HEAD OF THE HYDRA AND RECALL GOV. JERRY BROWN ALONG WITH VOTING OUT THESE LGBT NAZI'S!!!

Followup: It's 2017 and absolutely NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!! The judges continue to not read the motions and expect to be spoon fed by counsel and the mediators (who are fools and intellectual morons). One of my lawyers stated to me that "The one thing all judges have in common is that they are all LAZY!"
