This article I believe was written somewhere around 2007, yet here we are today, July 10, 2016 and I am still receiving e-mails and telephone calls from dads and mums all around the world just saying, “Thank You” for the advice.
So, with said, I am going to copy said article again here today. I see it has been changed up by a few with their insight but the bottom line is the same, if you have a complaint with the judge in your ruling, you must at least file a complaint.
I have taken the time to provide the address of the judicial review board in your state, on our Fathers4Justice website http://Fathers4justice.org, just click on “Your State” and all of the information is provided. If you have questions, send them to: email@example.com and we will assist you as possible.
First and foremost, do not ever go into a family court environment without a court reporter and/or fathers4justice court watchers. If you do not have the transcripts from the hearing, it will be your word against that of the judges and he will not tell the truth. This is of paramount importance, judges notice when they are, ‘on the record’, and if they are ever going to abide by laws and provide a fair and impartial hearing, it will be when a court reporter is present. The transcripts are a must for complaints and appeals!!!
Family Court needs to be Equal and Just for all families.
Donald Tenn of Fathers 4 Justice is on the right track filing complaints against judges who are failing to fairly uphold the law.
In a previous article we urged people to write to Chief Justice Ron George on demanding judicial accountability. He responded back that he appreciates our initiative and he to desires to expose these bad judges that are giving all judges a bad name.
However, Chief Justice George can’t do it without your help. He says, people talk about how bad their family court judge was, but written complaints are rarely submitted. “We need all complaints made against a judge or court to be in writing. All complaints are confidential and the complainant will not be revealed to the judge unless you consent further down in the investigation” says George. Many bad judges go on for years because the public fails to complain thinking there will be retaliation. This is a wrong misconception or fear George would like to dispel. He says “many judges simply need to be corrected and reminded and it is the public’s responsibility to identity these judges so his office can take remedial or recommend removal of a judge.” Judges sometimes forget they are elected officials and they are being paid $200,000 per year to fairly uphold all laws of the state and be unbiased to both parties. It takes a complaint to remind the judge that the public has to power to remove him or her if they fail to uphold the law.
Your complaint, no matter how trivial, can help keep our judicial system in check and remind judges they are your public servant to serve you and not you serve them.
HERE IS HOW YOU FILE A COMPLAINT:
The compliant form is a simple, straight-forward, and a one-page form. Fill out the form and state why you believe this judge should be investigated for misconduct and attach any supporting documentation. Quickly mail or fax to the address below on the form and keep a copy for your records. If there are other similiar complaints an investigator may contact you for additional information if needed.
If you want to positively make sure that your complaint is acted upon. You can go further to investigate a judge and request a copy of his “oath of office.” In many cases this form is not properly filed or missing. If it is, the judge is not sworn and judgments can be voided. Some judges without scruples will not sign the “oath of office” as a “get out of jail card” if they are caught doing something illegal or unethical down the road. The “oath of office” is on file at the clerk of the court records office and is open for public inspection. If you discover the judge does not have this document on file, you can get this judge removed from office and he might be subject to re-paying back his salary. Contacting the office of the presiding judge will point you in the right direction of obtaining this very important document that gives the judge his authority.
Another form you should look up is the ‘Statement of Financial Interest’. This form is on file at the clerk’s office and is subject to public inspection. If a judge made a decision on your case and referred you to an outside firm that he has a financial interest, he is violating his judicial canons and should be reported as unethical. This is filed annually and must be on file since the judge is an elected official, they can not use their office for personal or financial gain.
Now, you have learned to file a compliant against a judge. Please do this for you and your family so that we have better family court that truly serves the people. Remember nothing gets done unless you take action today.
Filing Complaints Against Judges in California
Posted by: “donaldtenn” firstname.lastname@example.org donaldtenn
I have posted a new file for filing complaints against your judges. I am personally filing complaints against each and every judge I have been before in the Sacramento County ANTI-family courts, I urge you to do the same.
This will be phase 1 of my personal project to IMPEACH Judge Thomas Cecil for his crimes against my daughter Madison Nicole Tenn and society as a whole. I have obtained a copy of his Oath of Office as well as that of most other Judges in Sacramento County as well as the State of Illinois. Contrary to what they want you to believe, these judges are NOT above the law and they will be held accountable for their crimes.
I trust you will join me in this effort, UNITED, we can and will make the changes necessary within our judiciary. I will NEVER quit fighting for my daughters right to share equally in her daddy’s life and I trust that you will do the same for your children and/or grandchildren as the case may be.
It is time for a change!
Frequently Asked Questions About Filing a Complaint Against a Judge
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Commission on Judicial Performance?
The Commission on Judicial Performance is the independent state agency that handles complaints about your states judicial officers for judicial misconduct. Again, the name may be different but is located on our website at: http://fathers4justice.org
Over Whom Does the Commission Have Authority?
The Commission has authority over all active California state court judges and over former judges for conduct while they were active judges. The Commission also has authority over court commissioners and referees as explained in Question 10. In addition, the Director-Chief Counsel of the Commission is designated as the Supreme Court’s investigator for complaints involving State Bar Court judges.
Who Can File a Complaint?
Any individual or group may file a complaint. The Commission has received complaints from litigants, attorneys, jurors, court-watchers, court personnel, prisoners, court administrators, members of the public, judges, legislators, and others. Anyone who has knowledge of possible judicial misconduct may file a complaint. The Commission also considers complaints made anonymously and matters it learns of in other ways, such as from news articles or from information received in the course of a Commission investigation.
What Is Judicial Misconduct?
Judicial misconduct usually involves conduct in conflict with the standards set forth in the Code of Judicial Ethics, or the ‘judicial Canons‘. Some examples of judicial misconduct are rude or abusive demeanor, conflict of interest, abuse of the contempt power, communicating improperly with only one side to a proceeding, delay in decision-making, and commenting on a pending case.
What Can the Commission Do?
The Commission investigates complaints of judicial misconduct and, when warranted, imposes discipline. The Commission can issue confidential advisory letters, private admonishments, public admonishments and public censures. In the most serious cases, the Commission can order that a judge be removed or retired from office, bar a former judge from receiving judicial appointments or assignments, or find that a court
commissioner or referee is ineligible to serve as a subordinate judicial officer.
Can the Commission Change a Legal Ruling?
No. The Commission does not have authority to direct a judge to take legal action or to reverse a judge’s decision or ruling for judicial error, mistake or other legal grounds. These functions are for the state’s appellate courts. Allegations stemming from a judge’s rulings or exercise of discretion ordinarily do not provide a basis for Commission action, and personal dissatisfaction with a legal ruling is not grounds for investigation of a judge.
Can the Commission Help Me with My Case?
No. The Commission cannot provide legal assistance or advice to individuals or intervene in litigation on behalf of a party. If you need advice or assistance about what to do next concerning your case or if you seek to change the outcome of the case, you should consult a lawyer immediately.
How Do I File a Complaint?
Complaints must be submitted in writing. See How to File a Complaint for further information at: http://fathers4justice.org. “My State”
Are Complaints Treated Confidentially?
Under the California Constitution and the rules governing the Commission, complaints to the Commission and Commission investigations are confidential. The Commission ordinarily cannot confirm or deny that a complaint has been received or that an investigation is under way. If formal charges are filed, the case becomes public.
Can the Commission Handle Complaints About Court Commissioners or Referees?
Yes. The Commission shares authority with the superior courts to investigate and discipline subordinate judicial officers. Complaints about court commissioners or referees must first be directed to the presiding judge of the court in which the matter was heard. If you want the Commission to review the local court’s final action on your complaint against a court commissioner or referee, you must file a written request with the Commission within 30 days after the date the notice of the local court’s action on the matter was mailed.
Does the Commission Handle Complaints About Attorneys?
No. Complaints about attorneys should be directed to the State Bar of California.
Does the Commission Have Jurisdiction over Temporary Judges?
No. Judges pro tem are attorneys temporarily serving as judicial officers. The State Bar of California has jurisdiction over attorneys. Although temporary judges are not employed by the courts, you may wish to bring a complaint about a judge pro tem to the attention of the presiding judge for consideration in making future appointments.
Can the Commission Consider Complaints About Private Judges?
No. The Commission has no authority over former judges serving as private judges. The Commission’s jurisdiction over former judges is limited to their conduct before retirement.
Those who do so, whether they demand the respect of being judges, or attorneys who actively strive to create animosity in order to steal your children’s college and inheritance or they be prosecutors who prosecute based on gender rather than the law. I have personally lived it, I have read thousands of your e-mails and have responded, as stated above countless times.
There are links on the Fathers4Justice website giving information on filing complaints in all 50 states (http://www.fathers4justice.org/content/state).
However, on this site, thanks to the kindness of those who have built and maintained this website for me, (“Thank You”) I have more leverage to speak my mind and offer you the guidance you need to file complaints and hopefully, if warranted, have each one of these child abusers disbarred, stripped of their pensions and incarcerated for their actions of child abuse. YES! Any judge that makes a ruling that separates our children from one of their good, fit, willing and loving parents is in fact a child abuser.
Furthermore, any attorney who strives to do the same, any attorney who coaches his client on how to commit perjury and/or make false allegations, they must be disbarred and incarcerated. This cancer which is destroying our families and society as a whole must be removed. I have been and plan on becoming even more active in exposing these child abusers and holding each one of them responsible for their actions. I am after all as my ex-wife Shannon Dawn Phillips Klaska called me repeatedly in our last court appearance, “A threat to the security of the nation” she further stated, “He climbs statues, bridges, cranes and we even have it from a legitimate news source(Youtube? A legitimate news source?) that he has chased a judge down the street with his bullhorn”. I had actually forgotten about the bullhorn thing but yes, that did happen in Maryland. My heart aches for all of those parents whose children are still being abused today by that judge. My actions were positive and trivial compared to what that judge is doing to our children and society as a whole.
In any event, as the majority of you know, Judge Peter J. McBrien saw no threat, he in fact stated, “All I see is father who wants to be a part of his child’s life, and even though it is not on the docket, I am adding it and making a ruling for parenting time today.” THANK YOU YOUR HONOR! The term, “Your Honor” is one that I rarely use as I find very few judges to be honorable beings, but Judge Peter J. McBrien was at least an honorable man on that day.
Holding the judiciary and all of their minions accountable for their actions is a big job! We must all work together, united we can and will affect a change, individually they will continue to abuse our children at will. So, one important point we should all take away from this initial compilation, “Your ex is not the enemy,” If he/she is anything like mine, they do not have the IQ to pull off such a crime. They may have the desire to cause you harm, but if it were not for the fact that the courts, the attorneys, the prosecutors and all of their minions working together for federal funds through the Social Security Acts Title IV-d, Title IV-e and VAWA funds, none of this would be happening, these actions are driven by greed.

Complaint to the Department of Justice
As a direct result of the ongoing hacking of the Fathers4Justice website, I have been inundated with more personal requests on how to file complaints than I have time for. Therefore, I will be adding additional information to my personal website here, to assist those of you within the United States. This information will assist you in your complaint process both through the Department of Justice as well as the FBI’s Color of Law complaints (Coming Soon). Please understand, we can not and will not compile your complaint for you, we are however more than willing to provide you with the process.
For those of you in other countries, we have facebook pages and groups for most countries and/or states as the case may be. You may also find resources within our Fathers4Justice LinkedIn groups. In the meantime, please understand, the Fathers4Justice website is being hacked, it is not only our concern to fix the website, we also intend to find the guilty party and hold them accountable for their actions.
Thank You for your understanding and continued efforts for Truth, Justice and Equality in Family Law…
