Organizing a protest ...

Saturday I'm meeting other activists to organize a protest against this judge (see my previous blog post) and hopefully we'll let the voters know he needs to retire. Now!

More later about this!

Judge Robert Lemkau needs to go!

In early January, Heather went to night court for a traffic violation. Her court date was earlier, but she was in Cedars-Sinai and couldn't attend. After calling the court clerk's office to see if Dave could attend in her place, she was told to bring her hospital records and ask the judge to reopen the case. They do it all the time.

Long story short, she went to court and not only did the judge not allow her to have her case re-opened, (she was there for hours and not allowed to use the restroom or put her legs up as her doctor ordered) and when she tried to explain her side of things, the judge had her bodily thrown out of court. She was 30 weeks pregnant.

So, who was this judge? Robert Lemkau. The same judge that called Katie Tagle a liar and allowed Stephen Garcia to take their 9 month old baby, Wyatt on visitation. Stephen Garcia shot and killed Wyatt and himself 10 days later as he had threatened. The judge did not believe Katie.

“My supposition, ma’am, is that you’re lying.” Those were Judge Robert Lemkau’s words to Katie Tagle of Yucca Valley as she appeared in his Victorville courtroom Jan. 21, seeking a restraining order that would prevent her ex-boyfriend, Stephen Garcia, from having unsupervised, Thursday-to-Sunday visits with their son, 9-month-old Wyatt Garcia. The judge turned down Tagle’s petition for an ex parte restraining order — a kind of emergency order made without a full hearing.

Ten days later, in the early-morning hours of Jan. 31, Stephen Garcia allegedly shot his son before turning his pistol on himself on a road in the snowy mountains of Twin Peaks.

Transcripts are here. Please read them, then support James Hosking and remove Judge Lemkau from the bench!

Who Dat!

It's that week-end again. Doesn't seem like a year since the last Superbowl! Where did 2009 go?

I'll be rooting for the Saints big time. If they bring the same game to the Colts that they brought to the playoff game, whoa...what a Superbowl game this will be!
