Why does judge Kenneth Black, South district court, Los Angeles still preside over divorce cases when he can't be fair and equal after his own bad divorce case? He harbors resentment towards women in general, rules on cases where there is obvious bias on his part toward men.
This is a fair question. One that I would love to hear since he could not see beyond the false accusations of my now ex-husband when any and all decisions were made. He allowed declarations from the other attorney to include disparaging remarks and accusations about me that were false, and could be proven to be false, to sway his decisions regarding custody and property. As is it, custody is 50/50, which after being a 99% of the time parent was hard to imagine. Property was split very disproportionately. The ex had previously taken all family photos, valuables and bank accounts in the weeks before filing for divorce on his attorneys recommendation. Therefore he claimed little valuables or photos existed, and accused me of taking it all. I had the physical proof, with photo ID of bank withdrawals of large sums of money.
Judge Black gave my attorney and I 10 minutes to write down items I wanted from the home. Having done that, the other attorney refused the list, which included very little. Of the items I did put on the list, I received so little it fit into 2 small boxes, which were broken or incomplete, which Judge Black told my attorney, those are garage sale items now. I started a new life with nothing.
All in all, the other attorney, knowing Judge Blacks past, purposely made false comments within earshot of the judge that I had had an affair, tried accusing me of child abuse, drug abuse and mental health issues. My attorney said that this is a common tactic in a case where the attacked parent has no ghosts in their closet, except those made up by the other party. How else to you even the playing field when one parent does all the parenting?
I have always held very respectable jobs, made sure that our kids stayed out of trouble and made school a priority. I allowed them opportunities to participate in sports, music, travel and taught them responsibility. These are things Judge Black did not allow for when making his judgements. I won't speak badly about my childrens father as he has done to me because there is never an excuse to do that.
All I ever asked of Judge Black is that he look at ALL the facts, divide property 50/50 as stated in the states laws and issue a warning about dragging the other parent through the sewer to gain points. This never happened. It continues to this day.
Kenneth Black is now a rented judge, but he appears to absolutely hate divorces and seems to only be in it for the money. He made his mind up I was a bad guy before he even met me, took my custody away, took my support payments from $5940mo to over $14,000mo PLUS order me to pay $200k in retro and 45 days to pay...on TEMP orders! PLUS seized my property when I couldn't pay in 45 days. black believes pretty much everything in unproven declarations and looks for anything to further support his pre-opinion of who he is going to punish. Fortunately I've been saving all recordings motions and transcripts of my time in front of him, and as he is a rented judge and is not under the judicial liability protection afforded sitting judges he can be held to answer for his conduct. Including arguing FOR the other side in open court, admitting evidence against CA Court established rules governing evidence and discovery, and so much more. Totally irresponsible behavior, the only conclusion is he must be in it for the money and not to fairly judge on EVIDENCE. It's insane how he rules on declarations without supporting evidence! Plus his refusal to set aside his blatant biased orders when confronted with irrefutable proof of the other side lied. black went so far as to say opp counsel should stop at nothing to take down me and my close relatives and punish us all...long story but I have the transcripts and will share with anyone who would like to see his inexcusable conduct. I URGE everyone to stay away from the dangerous idea of rent-a-judge(s) until the state enacts some kind of oversight of these loose cannons.
