Judge Tamara Hall should be removed from her position as a judge immediately. When handling cases that deal with extremely sensitive familial matters, it is imperative for a judge to have a full understanding of each case, compassion, and a true sense of what is just and fair. Judge Hall embodies not one these imperative qualities. Not only did she fail to read the documents pertaining to the case beforehand so that she was knowledgeable about the case, but she was also extremely rude and clearly had a bias coming in toward one party even before she heard from both sides. Tamara Hall made pre-judgements, failed to do her duty in knowing the facts before she made her decision, and was overall extremely unpleasant to deal with. In America, our entire society is founded upon the ideals of fairness and a judicial system that is balanced and that protects those that need protection. Justice Hall was a disgrace to these ideals, and I have consequently lost my entire faith our in justice system and in justice itself.

She was very nasty to my attorney over what should have been a routine question. Stared her in the eye like an animal asserting dominance. Again, no respect for safety or reality of situation. She and all family law judges need training in domestic violence and personality disorders, particularly how they manifest in family court.

Would anyone like to arrange a protest out in front of the court house to get this woman removed?

I encourage everyone who has an issue to submit a complaint: http://cjp.ca.gov/complaint_process.htm. Another way to deal with this issue is to organize a petition to be presented to the Governor. Just a thought. I'd be happy to facilitate this effort. Hall should not be on the bench.

This judge needs to be removed from her seat. I sat in court quite shocked as the judge admitted to not having read my paperwork and proceeded to give the opposing party more than what was requested not considering his history of violence. But then again how could she consider something that she never read. She should have read my entire file to see the violence and restraining orders that previously impacted the rulings in my case. My child is now subjected to more violence and possible molestation that she refused to hear as my attorney was not allowed to speak about during much of the hearing. I will totally support any efforts to get this judge removed from the bench and would suggest that everyone write letters to the presiding Judge Scott Gordon describing your experience. People like this should not be able to make life impacting decisions about any child.

Judge Hall unfortunately is controlled by forces mightier than she. She probably lacks the judicial education she must have to be sitting on the family bench. I will be requesting her judicial education certificates required for sitting in family court. Judge Hall is not doing the right thing for parents and children coming before her. I tried to stop a mother and her millionaire boy friend from taking my client's two children to India for a 4 week vacation because she and her boyfriend are extremely negligent -- letting their 2 year old child fall from a deck 14 ft at a party where 100 people were in attendance at their Mailbu mansion because they negligently did not replace a missing part of the barrier around the deck. I do not understand why DCFS did not open up a case on the two of them. My client's 9 year old son who is in the full custody of his mother is failing in school and is disruptive in class. When my client was sharing custody, his son was doing well in school. Both the mother and her boy friend drink alcohol which I think contributed to the toddler falling off the deck -- his parents were not watching him because they were busy partying, besides failing immediately to replace the missing part of the protective barrier around the deck . To make matters even worse, my client is Arab, muslim, and Palestinian and India just elected a right wing anti-Muslim bigot as prime minister, one of my client's children is a little girl and we all know that in India little girls are gang raped and hung from trees which gang rapes are increasing. India has no treaty with the U. S. concerning child custody. The mother's Indian live-in partner who was born in India testified in a deposition he does not know where the nearest court is to the place where my client's kids will be staying in India. Judge Hall did not even demand that the mother provide the full address and phone number where the children will be staying in Mumbai, India, one of the largest cities in the world. So, if Mom and boyfriend decide to do some drinking or go off to do some partying, and something happens to the two children of my client, my client will have no way to get them. No judge should ever be allowed to take such risks as Judge Hall did when she allowed this negligent, bordering on the unfit, mother to take my client's two young children to India over their father's objection. It should be emphasized that the mother is Mexican American and has NO connection to India other than the fact that her boy friend is Indian. Finally, we provided a declaration to the court from an expert in Indian child custody law. It was her opinion that my client's two children should not be allowed to move to India with their mother and her mother's boy friend because there is no protection in the Indian Courts for the left-behind parent, especially American parents.

This judge is a joke. I agree something must be done about her. I was just railroaded by her and was not given due process. I was not allowed to submit my evidence or call my witness. She definitely did not like me from the moment I stood in front of her and I felt she was against me and it didn't matter what I said. She was rude and made a decision without letting me have a final say to counter the plantiff's witness. This was a travesty of justice. I will be appealing her decision. I'm happy to file a complaint against this woman. She is the worst judge I've ever come across and has no business being in family court.

Judge Tamara E Hall should not be handling cases when it comes to Children. My daughter was represented by an attorney that was spoken to like she had a tail between her legs. Tamara wouldn't let the attorney speak nor did she want to hear the true facts on how the baby's father lied to get Custody of child. The Father came to court with all types of lies and false statements by people who knew nothing of the mother or who has ever met the mother. The father has also lied to the County just so he can get a check off of his daughter to support his and his girlfriend drug habit.The father's mother also is supporting a pile of lies on her son's behalf knowing she know the truth about the situation. My daughter has tried over and over and over and over and over to explain her case but this Judge does not want to hear the truth. Tamara Hall is making an example of my daughter because she supports DEAD BEAT DADS! She is rude, obnoxious, she's evil and very experienced on Family Law. She supports Dead Beat Dads and tries her best to make the mother of the Child look bad. She supports Gang Members, Drug Users, Manipulators, Men who uses their Kids to get money and Liars who claims they are supporting the Child and Spends all his time with the Child when in fact the Child hardly see's him because she is left with this mother all day. He has lied to the court about finances he has when in fact the only finance he has is Money he gets from the County (Thanks to his daughter) Just enough to support his HABIT! This judge Ms. Tamara Hall does lack common sense and is very one-sided. She favors a criminal gang member that transports his minor child around with no car seat and goes against ALL court orders. The father comes to court high off his pills/marijuana and cocaine that he uses just so he can cry in court to get Sympathy to support his lies and this "STUPID" woman falls for it every time and treats my daughter like SHIT! And Always sides with the lying Father. I think every one who has had their case heard in this No Experienced, No Concern For The Child Judge need to have their cased moved and heard by a Judge that will listen to the FACTS/TRUTH and who is best for the CHILD. My daughter cries every night because her Precious Daughter has been taken from her on Lies and Tamara Hall does not have the experience to see that she is being PLAYED by a Manipulator. But you know what GOD see's all and knows who's right and who's wrong. This will turn in my Daughter's favor because MS. so called Judge Hall day will come and she will be removed. Because if she doesn't, someone's child is seriously going to be HURT, God forbid it doesn't turn drastic. Please, we need a Judge to re-exam this woman's decisions before someone is HURT. God Help Us All !!!!!!!!!

This judge needs to go. She SHOULD NOT be working in family law! I don't think she read my file or at least didn't take seriously the history of domestic abuse. I thank god that She did order supervised visitations for the father like I requested but 100% paid for by me! I'm not sure how she expects a single mother and full time student to pay for months of supervised visits. In the meantime the deadbeat dad has not paid any child support to this day. This ruling made by her is not in the best interest of my child, to use up what little financial resources we have so that he can visit. I am going to file a complaint because she was very sarcastic and nasty during the entire hearing and there is no reason a judge needs this kind of arrogant attitude while dealing with parents who are there on behalf of their children. I'm not sure if she has any knowledge about domestic abuse and how that affects the dynamics of co-parenting with an abuser, because she spent very little time addressing that and made sure I understood that the father has every right to his child no matter what his history is. Please if you have had a bad experience with her, please make a proper complaint! The more there are the more likely her attitude and rulings will be looked into. We cannot allow someone like this to continue making bad decisions for our kids and punishing good parents. Http://cjp.ca.gov

Overheard her at lunch talking to a friend about how "it's MY courtroom." No, hon, it belongs to the taxpayer. You're just a bench officer charged with refereeing disputes. We pay your salary to do a fair job, not act like a mean-spirited child. She's obviously has let the "power" go to her head. Sad state of affairs that this idiot gets to ruin people's lives, and take pleasure in it.

I have been aggressively pursuing Tamara Hall's removal from the bench since my ex-husband's contempt trial in December, 2013. Those details were decided by Judge Cunningham, and then, because of his questionable arrest circumstances by LAPD he was "turfed" to probate court - so that he would avoid having to rule on any Family Court matters involving LAPD employees. Everyone has to understand - and I see that many of my prior postings have been deleted- that if your ex-spouse is a wealthy person who can hire a high-powered law firm, then Tamara Hall will always rule in favor of the high powered law firm. WHY? Because they either send bribes to Los Angeles Superior Court, or, more likely, will support Tamara Hall in her bid for re-election so she can continue to function as a puppet of these " Blue Chip" law firms and always rule in favor of the clients who will pay top dollar to get their way. That is exactly what happened with some loose ends of my ex-husband's contempt trial. Judge Hall SANCTIONED me (sanction means you violated some order already in place) , which I did not. There was no prior ruling in place. My ex-husband, a very wealthy dentist in Los Angeles violated many terms of our judgement. She forced me to pay $16,000 in my ex-husband's attorney fees, only because my ex-husband's high-powered attorneys in Encino, CA either paid her off or offered her continuing political support for her re-election. This is totally unethical and unrcontionable! I sent a series of letters to the CJP, and personally to the members of the Board of the CJP, and they all see no wrong-doing on her part! Please continue to send your complaints to the Commission on Judicial Performance, 455 Golden Gate Avenue Suite 14400 San Francisco, CA 94102 Blogging here does no good unless this Commission can be flooded with complaints.

Just terrible. Absolutely no logic behind her order. Heard the stories, stated she knew and understood the law and then ruled in a completely different direction. Was rude and disrespectful to myself and my lawyer. She is completely out of touch with family law and is not able to make good decisions that affect the children. Puts dead-beat husbands in front of the hard-working parent. Is completely unable to see between the lines to figure out what is really going on. I would absolutely write a complaint and sincerely hope I can get the case re-heard by an unbiased, knowledgeable party.

This judge isn't very bright and can be pretty nasty for no reason. Why does she think because she's a judge she has a right to be rude to people? She should be a model of civility and set a good example, instead she tries to show "who's boss" and was very rude to my lawyer. Rule against me, fine, but there's no reason to try to demean people. It made me wonder why she has a chip on her shoulder. Maybe she knows she didn't get to be a judge based on merit.

This Judge needs to removed from Family Court. She's rude and does not read any of the cases prior to or during the hearings. It's almost like she is bothered by having to hear/listen to people present their cases. I had a hearing in where I had all of the supporting documentation, submitted copies of everything in my response declaration and brought additionnal information to court with me. She cut me off when I was trying to explain my case whie I was trying to reference the information that I had submitted. She quickly started rendering her decision as soon as I stopped talking. In my case I had letters from Child Support Services indicating that they had conducted audits in the accounting of my support payments. I had dates, times and the name of the case worker that conducted the audits. All the letters said that I did not owe anything and that they had attempted to explain the payments disbursements to the supported parent. She didn't care. She didn't even look at it. There was an employer retirement plan that was awarded to me as a settlement agreement. That plan is now non qualifying plan and they pay me an amount every January. The payment is indicated as "grandfathered" on the check. It was identified as "grandfathered" because the retirement plan is no longer offered, but since it was part of my benefits package, I would be grandfathered with the payments. The opposing attorney accused me of "cutting and pasting" and relabeling this from a bonus to "grandfathered" I submitted letters from my employer and their attorneys explaining that this was not a bonus, but a payment from my retirement plan. The judge didn't even read the letters. This Judge decided that everything that the petitioner asked for they should get. Including attorney fees because the other attorney had to bring this issue to court. The other attorreny lied and got away with it becasue she didn't bother to read or listen to anything. She's rude, disrepectful and definately not qualified to make decisions that affect peoples/children/family lives. The previous Judge Cunningham was much better. He listened and explained and gave people the opportunity to speak and explain their cases. He would also ask questions to make sure that he understood the matter. This lady is more concerned with demeaning people and just pushing cases out without knowing the issues or resolving them. What upsets me more is that the opposing attorney even suggested to the Judge that she have Child Support Services conduct another audit and submit a report to the court. That wasn't needed she already had her mind set that she was going to just push this case through no mater what and without reading anything. End result...I got stuck with paying thousands of dollars for nothing. I sat there with all the supporting evidence in my hand thinking...what just happened?! The opposing attorney had a "is it my birthday:" look on his face as she read her decision. He knows he gambled his lies and got lucky that Judge Hall didn't want to read or listen to anyone. I remember thinking as I listened to cases before mine...Wow this lady is mean really doesn't want to be here. I will also be submitting a complaint to CJP and also providing them with a copy of everyones posts here. Hopefully somehow they can reverse her ridiculous unfounded rulings and have a competent Judge hear these cases over and make a fair ruling based on all the information provided. If you have a hearing coming up with her...expect the unexpected!

Dear all, I am an attorney and have made my email available to everyone on this board who want assistance in preparing a complaint against Hall. Unfortunately, I only got limited replies. I proposed above that we could start a petition but again only got limited replies. I will make my email available again for anyone who wants help (I will not charge for my assistance/services): esquire.attorney@gmail.com. As to #42 above, I agree that there needs to be a collaborative effort to rid the bench of this embarrassment. I would be happy to be a part of such an effort. I await all interested individuals' emails.

I am sadden to read all of these results in regards to Judge Tamara E. Hall. Unfortunately i am yet another victim of her actions. I am a hard working mother that has raised my children alone during and after my marriage. My ex husband knows the bond that i have with our children and said he would never divide that but obviously that changed. He says that he no longer wanted to pay child support and that he has more stability because he owns a home. He cried, lied and put on a whole show in front of Judge Hall and she bit right into it. She removed my children from me on a temporary placement until our children could have a child evaluation. She left it up to us to determine visitations for myself and i advised her that he was not going to cooperate but she insisted that he would. In the meantime he never allowed me to see our children for two month"s. I text him everyday requesting a visit and he denied each time. She told him to keep them in all activities and all appointments that they had. Of course he did not. I brought all text messages printed and all missed appointments to court. I felt that I had a strong defense against him but she still handed him our children! This time he came into court with a t shirt, shorts and sun shades on with a smile on his face. Feeling very confident because he had already spent two months keeping our children away from me and brainwashing them for their evaluation. Our daughter is 10 years old. She is bright but the wording that she used was totally out of her vocabulary. Even the Judge had to ask how old she was again. But even after this, after i brought up all the lies my ex husband told and how he has destroyed me and our children relationship the Judge made her judgement. I feel like she never really listened to anything that i said because the whole time she was researching her books and writing while I was talking. Now i am a really good at multitasking but its pretty hard to get full comprehension while listening and reading at the same time. This is my children"s lives we where talking about and she could have at least paid attention and heard out the case. Before i finished talking she looked up at me and asked me if i was done so she could make her judgement. It was like she already knew what it was before she even heard me out. As i sat in court i noticed she did other cases just like this. I now visit with our children on the weekend only and they cry each time that they have to go back with him. This has stressed me out and made me feel like a horrible person/mother. I was a foster mom for years because i had the desire to help children. I saw the children get taken away from their mothers because of drugs, abuse etc. It was extremely hard to take a woman's children but not with Judge Hall. I am hurt, disappointed and embarrassed! I feel like this case must be re-heard by a Judge that is capable of being fair and not bias.

My heart and prayers go out to all the families who have had to come in contact with this horrible person who calls herself a judge. Twelve years ago she served as the DA in a murder case in which the suspect was innocent. Ms. Hall, along with a couple of corrupt Lynwood sheriffs accused and help sentence an innocent man to double life. One day justice will be served. Deep down Tamera may be suffering from something far beyond what any of us could imagine (bullied as a child, not loved, etc) or she could be just plain evil. Nevertheless she will never know the pain, hurt, disturbing and horrible life my friend has endured while he sits behind cemented walls for a crime he never committed.

This Judge is all for parents getting together and working out but does not understand there are some people who refuse to work it out with the other parent. She lacks common sense and seem to not look at the cases fully before she makes a ruling. She let alot of negative things slide and very unorganized with her cases.

This judge Ms. Tamara Hall does lack common sense and is very one-sided. She favored a criminal gangmember that transports his minor child around with no car seat and goes against ALL court orders. She sympothysizes for the wrong party and refuse to go back and do her homework and see the other party is playing games and lying to her in order to punish the other parent for personal issues. She goes back and forth on her orders alot due to feeling sorry for the criminal she gave full custody. She yells at my attorney for no reason as if she's out to get her. She's big on evidence but refuse to see both sides that actually have evidence. She completely ignores one side and refuse to see the big picture. She let's this crimal get away with things that NO PARENT should get away with. She has put me in a worst situation I've already been in for the past year. What's sick is I'm actually the good parent. The other parent came in with lies and false evidence to make me out to be a monster when I'm defifnitely not. This isnt fair at all. She should listen to both sides and not judge people on what someone is presenting to her becuase there are people that lie and bash someone to cover their own flaws. Instead of looking at evidence she should take initiative to listen for once and catch on to the obvious. This is getting out of hand.

If you want to see a circus, come to this courtroom. Hall is the head clown. No idea how she got on the bench. Overcompensates for her incompetence and inability to manage the courtroom by being nasty towards practitioners. Constantly embarrasses herself with outrageous reasoning and silly rulings. I am not surprised to see so many negative reviews on Hall here. I would be happy to facilitate an effort to file a mass complaint against this judicial officer.

I'm extremely saddened by this Judge's behavior and the way she runs her court room. It's a shame that our Judicial system has come to the point where a Judge with no family law background gets to Judge family law cases. This judge obviously doesn't know what she is doing. We were all extremely saddened by the rulings she made. Often times, she doesn't look at facts, and makes decisions without merit. I feel this Judge must be taken off the bench. I'd like to provide more detail regarding my case, but I'm honestly afraid to as I don't want to give my self away. Make a long story short, I don't think she has the best interest of the minor child at heart and makes rulings like a gun slayer shooting from the hip. Be prepared, because you never know what she will rule. She is very rude and disrespectful and her inexperience is hurting a lot of families who depend so much on the court to solve their issues. Instead, this Judge can screw up your whole case in a heart beat. I hope this Judge gets removed from family law, cuz she has no business deciding the fait of children.

I truly do not understand how this judge was assigned to family law. She is beyond rude and completely incompetent of her duties. She seems to just go through each case as if she were in a fog and everything is routine. Awarding dead beat mothers rights they never had before when the child expressed to multiple people they felt unsafe due to mental and physical abuse. She is one of the reasons children continue to be killed or hurt.

I thought I had seen crazy things in a courtroom until I witness this judge in action. A cry for help by a 14 year old child went on deaf ear. The child was trying to kill herself due to the fact she wanted to live with the father. Judge hall told the father to just tell her it's going to be ok. And didn't give the father full custody the matter wasn't fix. She told the father to come back in a month he told judge hall she won't be alive in a month. This judge is some else so if you Got her on your case run for the hills.

Tamara Hall needs to be removed as soon as possible. Somehow my case in February 2014 was assigned to her and she had only been on the Family Court bench for four days. Prior to that I spent an entire day in court with Judge Cunningham in December 2013 for my ex-husband's contempt trial. Tamara Hall totally ignored the task at hand which was to verify a number of outstanding details that were to be wrapped after my ex-husband's contempt trial, including considering some extra attorneys fees on my behalf. She did not read the transcript from that trial. If so, she would have known that my ex-husband is a millionaire and there was domestic violence involved in our divorce, and he was consistently noncompliant with his court ordered spousal support obligations to me. Out of thin air, she unilaterally decided to grant my ex-husband's attorney's request that I pay his $16,000 attorney fee. There is something extremely nefarious happening in the Los Angeles Court system.

Tamara E. Hall has no business in Family Law. While some people try to become a judge to help people, Tamara E. Hall has made it clear to me that some people become a judge to hurt people. Before my case I heard several cases. A couple of her rulings were downright scary due to the obvious danger she placed litigants and their children in. This judge seems to award litigants who have been violent toward the other parent. It seems as though she either doesn't care about the safety and we'll being of children at best. Honestly I think it is quite possible that she wants children to be harmed. Tamara E. Hall is going to cause death and bodily harm, either some one's or several people's depending on how long she is able to remain a family court judge. If you think you have a reason to complain, please go to the California Commission on Judicial Perfourmance website and download the complaint form: http://cjp.ca.gov/complaint_process.htm. We all have to speak up and protect ourselves, our children and future litigants. We will succeed only if everyone who can complain, does complain. They can't ignore all of us but they will ignore some of us. Don't let Tamara E. Hall remain in a position to harm anyone else. She is grossly incompetent, at best.

I knew anyone from Compton was trouble! This judge is bringing her street etiquette to "Her" courtroom! The entire courtroom is a circus now since Cunningham left. He was lazy. She is Ghetto! Sh has been intimated by my beauty, my real hair, nice clothes, shapely body, youth and articulate. She hates competition with another woman. She likes dead beat dads and will side wither lies, and let dads rant badly on and on about his child's mother. This woman does not like herself! She does not read files! She believes all verbal. Lies and all! She has walked off the bench too many times! Suspicious! She wear a weave she cannot seem to get right with all that money she makes! She's just unhappy and it shows on the bench! She is ruining a lot of lives! She is being conned by some bad boy outside that court room! And in love with a bad boy! I can read this type of woman all day! We are all in trouble with this woman! She cannot fit in with high end lawyers and Judges! She cannot relate to them. Her entire conversation would be about the hood! Trust me I know her kind! She is displeased cause she never fit in with the pretty girls, (Beyonce type) booty, hair, light skin, nice firm breast (she tire flat), teeth. So when we come before and are married/divorced kids getting child support, have new mates, looking fierce, she is trying to figure out why she is out the loop with her high position, money, petiteness, weave etc! She is very street nasty! But that is all she knows! She didn't change for the better with that power!

Regarding #22 I would very much like to be a part of this complaint process...I thought the Judge Cunningham was incompetent...come to find out he was only lazy and wanted to go the path of least resistance (ie, siding with the party with a lawyer), not to mention completely gender bias...Judge Hall, now there is a judge that has no business being a judge...at least not in Family Court...I do not understand how one judge who after making in insane decision on my custody case (ignoring ALL the California Family Codes in the process), not two months later is arrested for resisting arrest, and then being replaced with a judge who has no family law experience as an attorney (nor as a judge), allowed to oversea Family Law...it is telling when a party has to be counseled by the court bailiff and be assured that they know for the last year both judges have completely ignored the other parties lies and deceit to the court with the support of their attorney, and that the judges own staff (clerk, bailiff etc) they acknowledge that both judges are not up to par with what a family law judge should be...as a result my daughter and I have suffered greatly over the last year plus...my professional career has been ruined due to my spouses false DV RO 130 filed against me and still unjustly enforced, the two false CPS reports filed against me (of which both investigations were determined to have been "Unfounded" with both LA and SD DCFS)...so yes, whatever I can do to assist with having these judges taken to task and having a judge that actually knows and understands family law, not just making arbitrary decisions based on their own personal bias (or as they like to refer to as "Judicial Discretion")...there is nothing judicial nor equitable regarding their respective decisions, and as a result, a father and their child continues to suffer.

Judge Tamara E. Hall is doing our trial courts a disservice with her rulings as she does not use the law to protect our children. She presents herself in a manner that is not fit with the word, "honorable." If you are representing yourself, be prepared to be railroaded. If you are a mother fighting against a father who has any issues, don't expect much. This judge will not allow you to defend yourself, even if you have proof of any kind because she does not want to hear it. Her goal is to get things "over with" so she can go about her day and collect her paycheck. She pays no attention to children with special needs, medical or otherwise, and she wants to force parents who can not get along to have to make decisions together, even if it means more tension for the child. She is rude, she makes rash decisions out of no where, and she doesn't think twice about placing a child in harms way. I have witnessed her inappropriate behavior on multiple occasions, and I've lost all respect for our judicial system because of her rulings. I urge you to file any type of complaint against this judge if you've had issues so that you don't end up being another statistic in our family court system.

Not sure if my comment will make a difference but here it goes... The most rude and condescending judge ever encountered...scary. How did she become a family law judge? Is it true she was a DA? Former DAs should not be allowed to crossover into family law--it is akin to a pediatrician becoming an orthopedic surgeon (or the other way around). You need a certain fine touch of compassion and a tactful delicate approach to cases as a family law judge--both of which this judge lacks. I will gladly sign a petition to have her removed from the bench. Toss the rouge judges out! Perhaps she needs psychoanalysis to find out what is her problem deep within her psyche. I will tell my story about my encounter with her in court just not now.

My experience with this judge has been very similar to everyone else. She is rude without reason, uneducated without intelligence, and unprepared. Worse than her bias, is her maniacal desire to harm women and children. The way I was able to remove her from the case and get a new judge was to come in as an intervener (new party to the case), and immediately file a 170.6 Peremptory Challenge. I suppose someone with grandparents rights (another type of intervener) could do the same... I agree, between Cunningham and Hall it has been a long time since Dept 22 has seen any justice!

2784. party to case (with attorney)

Let me start by saying that Judge Hall has a very different way of running her courtroom...quite unconventional. My initial impression was that she was poorly equipped to handle complex family law matters. She proved me very wrong. We had a three day case that was very straightforward, but Judge Hall seemed to make it more complicated by allowing in factors that would normally be extraneous. She took a very holistic view and wanted to assess the really big picture. She made us work very hard to prove our case. I thought she might get lost in some of the subtlety or forget key components, but in her summary she stepped through every component with surgical precision and grasped the subtleties quite frankly more than myself. I believe Judge Taylor will mature well in her position and become one of the leading trial judges in the City of Los Angeles.

2968. party to case (with attorney)

While Tamara Hall may not have many years of experience as a Family Court judge, she is self assured, in control of the court proceedings and listened attentively with relevant questioning and conformation for each case brought before her. In our case, she recognized the rights of paternal grandparents to have continued visitation with their grandchild which was being denied by the custodial parent. The judge's understanding of grandparent/grandchildren relationship is commendable and a necessary addition to family law issues. When one parent is deceased (our situation) their child's best interest is served by having a continual relationship with the decease family. She is knowledgeable and referred to Grandparent's Rights law issues in conferring her decision. Judge Hall speaks authoritatively and professionally and deserves her position in Family Law. She commands respect and gives the same level of respect to all in her court room. The judge is the person in charge of court proceedings (not the litigant or attorney) and she behaves accordingly. Judge Tamara Hall explained that each litigant's declaration was reviewed in its entirety and upheld with equal credence. Her orders reflected the rights of children who are voiceless as minors; and not the thought process of the custodial parent who often choose to use their children as pawns. Fairness with impartiality is how I rate Judge Hall's conduct in the court room.

I have a 10 year restraining order on my kids dad. I have moved 7 times in a year due to my kids dads behavior. Stalking me, threatening, and harassing me & my friends. Judge Tamara Hall forced me to give the father my new address. I was beging her to remember the 10 year restraining order. She said it loud in the court room that she did not care. I told her 2 times that i have a 10 year criminal restraining order. She said she would hold me in contempt for not giving him my address. So i had to give him my address. I was so scared. I also have the safe at home card. She never considered it. She said and i quote she said " i do not care. You need to give him your address or you will go to jail." I want tamara removed off of my case! She needs to be removed off the bench for good! My house has been broken into twice, my neighbors & i have seen weird people taking pictures of just my apartment unit, i have been jumped by my kids dads girlfriends neice. All due to tamara not following the Criminal Restraining order. My kids now fear to leave with their dad.

I'm working on my complaint and was looking at some of the Private admonishments that have been given to judges in the past. Here are a few hat sounded very close to the way Judge Hall treats people in her court room: "A judge made sarcastic, demeaning and intimidating statements to counsel during court proceedings. The judge had been previously disciplined for similar conduct. (Ann. Rept. (2004), Private Admonishment 6, p. 22.) [Demeanor/decorum.]" and "A judge’s remarks concerning litigants in two separate matters displayed bias and offensive demeanor. (Ann. Rept. (2003), Private Admonishment 2, p. 25.) [Bias/ appearance of bias toward a particular class; demeanor/decorum.]" and "During a hearing, the judge made a denigrating remark about a minor seeking a protective order. (Ann. Rept. (2011), Advisory Letter 10, p. 25.)" and "A judge was rude to counsel and litigants in three cases. (Ann. Rept. (2008), Advisory Letter 3, p. 26.)" Judge Hall has displayed similar behaviors to many litigants and attorneys in her courtroom. I have personally been on the receiving end of such rude behavior, made to feel like my concerns were unimportant and even accused of lying. These behaviors violate the code of judicial ethics and she needs to be reported on EVERY TIME she disrespects litigants and endangers our children. If you have had a bad court room experience with Tamara Hall, make a formal complain against her. If its is repeated enough something will have to be done. http://cjp.ca.gov/

I am submitting another comment (see #15 above) as I have been following the comment threads for three months and preparing my formal complaint with the California Commission on Judicial Performance (cjp.ca.gov). I encourage everyone to do the same, as the CJP may be able to compel Tamara Hall to reverse or nullify her decisions, or have her ridiculous rulings nullified by another entity. Please note, that in one of the more positive comments, the author, in closing, refers to "Judge Taylor" so obviously is not on point with their comment. Again, it is my personal belief that there are some less-than-honorable, blatantly nefarious forces at work with the Los Angeles County Family Court system and Tamara Hall.

A nightmare. Completely ignores the UCCJEA. Claimed jurisdiction when she had no legal right to do so and separated a mother from her 3 year old son 1000 miles away in Canada. She gave full custody to a drunk wife beater who lives on a boat, works 18 hours a day - and must have round the clock nannies during his allotted parenting time. She gave the mother who lives in another country, weekend visitation -- which she can't exercise. The drunk just takes the 3 year old out on the boat on weekend on his days off, parties and falls asleep on his boat intoxicated with the toddler.. How did the father pull this off? He claimed that the mom kidnapped their son.. -- but after she proved that he moved them to canada over a year prior to divorce and flew up to visit every couple months when he took time off work, proved he skyped with his son and paid the rent the night before the fake emergency hearing he held with judge hall where he accused his wife of fleeing to canada... proved he imported her car to canada and that by his own admission on all divorce and custody documents that vancouver was their only official family residence... judge hall violated international law (The Hague Convention) and the UCCJEA and ordered the child come to california for a hearing, and then ordered that the mom not leave the country and return back home with her son.. even though she had no car, no place to stay no money in California.. and all belongings are up in Vancouver Canada.. Judge Hall separated a 3 year old boy from his mother.. in one day -- no notice- wearing only the clothes he had to the hearing.. That was July 1st 2015. The father has complete strangers caring for the toddler still in diapers, and deprives him of all contact with his mom, and only sees him for a few brief hours a week. He hired an expensive crooked attorney and cut his wife off of all support - and left her with a $5000 a month overhead in Vancouver, including a fully furnished condo with all their belongings, a car she cannot drive since its in his name so she cannot insure it, and 35k in debt from attorney expenses and travel expenses trying to get her son back and defend herself against felony child abduction charges. The divorce? Hasn't even started yet. Judge Hall is nothing short of a NIGHTMARE.

I disagree with the commenters. I think the anger from some speaks to Hall's ability to make the right decisions and not be burdened with pleasing both parties which is the problem with most Judge's and keeps cases endlessly on calendar. Hall is exceptionally smart and if you lie in her courtroom it won't bode well for you and that's the way it should be. She is exactly what all judges should be like.

I have to agree with almost everyone on this site. She is someone that does not care about any laws set in place to protect people. She is clearly uneducated in this field and should be put in criminal law where there are jurers. She discriminates if she does not like you which is not the job she has been given to do. As a civil servant where there are laws in place she refuses to follow them. She knows that majority of people barely have enough to hire and attorney so by pushing her own agenda she makes discriminative judgements and does not understand and obey by evidence provided to her. This is not a game for people that show up to court and she's not there to teach people a lesson. Your job is to protect the family meaning all sides not just a one way that you have chosen and not paying any attention to the laws set in place by the courts way above her head. She needs to do everyone a favor and relieve herself so she does not hurt anyone else. She is destroying people's lives and destroying families. I would hope that if you are chosen for such a seat you would be fare and a non discriminative person with a gaval. She destroys lives and she seems like she does not care. I do hope she is reprimanded and removed ASAP.

Judge Tamara Hall comes to the courtroom completely unprepared and has a lack of knowledge, of case in front of her. She completely ignores the facts and evidence, that have been brought to her attention, while making poor decisions, in direct violation of state law. She is very biased toward one side and also improperly favors the higher end law firms and litigants, (and even helps them out, when they're also unprepared) while disregarding the law, facts and evidence. She fails to protect the legal right's of the most vulnerable victims and economically disadvantaged.. She fails to hold the perpetrators accountable for their abusive actions. Judge Hall's improper decisions, result in inequitable rulings, re-victimazation of the victims and denial of fair rulings, justice and protections under the law. Judge Hall needs to be held accountable for her incompetency and abusive practices in the courtroom. (And, so do any attorneys who have exploited her lack of knowledge and favoritism towards their side; while having prevailed through misrepresentations, and various violations of codes of professional conduct.) Although state disciplinary agencies, usually don't take complaints as seriously as they should be doing (because it is their job to do so.) However, if more litigants filed detailed complaints about these abusive practices in the courtroom; perhaps disciplinary committees, will take note, during their (usually very limited) investigation. Litigants must also become vocal during elections, have the record on hand, and even contact the media about these abusive practices; especially the numerous abusive practices that are seen in the family courts. If more is done consistently, perhaps the elections will focus on compliance with the law, punishment for perjury and abuse of the court process. Detailed complaints for judicial misconduct, judicial incapacity and improper practices, should be filed with The Commission on Judicial Performance. It is up to those who have been abused by the courts, to report these abusive practices, to promote public awareness and reform, in order to enhance public protection.

I wish there was an option for one star. Judge Tamara Hall has effectively ruined my life, the life of my child, and my entire family. She is a seriously ineffective and incompetent member of this nation's judiciary. She ignores the obvious facts and documents in front of her and seems to rule by her own volition and not by what has been documented. She does not care about the credibility of witnesses or documents. She is biased and has preconceptions that mar her ability to confront the actual facts of a case. Her decision put my child in danger and it is evident by these other reviewers that I am not the only person who has been seriously affected by her incompetence. I sincerely hope that someday, real justice might prevail with the removal and disbarment of Judge Hall.

I am shocked to read the comments about this Judge and it saddens me that people are trying to run out someone I truly believe is one of the best LA county has to offer. You should be thanking your lucky stars if your case gets assigned here. She is direct, will call BS when she sees it, and might not treat your attorney with kid gloves, but I can assure you your case will be resolved fairly, efficiently, and smartly.

It is difficult to elect good judges. When the candidates are a public defender and a district attorney, I am often asked for my opinion. I am a former deputy district attorney. I always tell them the same thing. All else being equal, always go with the public defender. This judge is a perfect example of why that is true. The best interest of the child is not served in this woman's court. I have been following a dissolution of marriage case in her court. It got to court only because the petitioner, the one who filed for divorce, wanted to inflict as much pain as possible to his wife. The only issue at trial was custody. The husband did everything he could for three years to bleed his wife dry of any money she had. It didn't matter what that meant for his son. He did not care about the child, he just wanted to destroy his wife. And he did that by not following court orders filing specious lawsuits, and making her spend every bit of money he could to defend against his ridiculous allegations. He knew the best way to hurt her, was through her child. A Special-needs boy who is homeschooled by the mother, and whose only concern was for his education and well being. Between October and January multiple court dates were set. A few hours here, a few hours there. And multiple delays. This judge appeared to be paying attention, and she was taking what appeared to be excellent notes. I say appeared because obviously she paid no attention at all. The judge herself caught the husband in multiple lies and pointed them out. That's perjury. Oh, well, ok in this court. This man had been harassing his wife for three years through phone calls emails and in person. All that was put into evidenced by her attorney. Very clear he is in capable of coparenting. You cannot coparent with a sociopath. The respondent in this case has been through so much, and this judge decided to continue the torture. The husband's attorney wrote a ridiculous closing argument, full of negative things about the mother. Not much about the best interest of the child. The mother's attorney wrote a closing argument tying all the things together that he had shown, proven, in court. This judge had all the information before her, enough to make the right decision. All the mother wanted was to be able to have a child during the week to do his homeschooling. She wanted to be able to make all the decisions regarding schooling, because the husband is not capable of coparenting. He will never agree to anything the mother suggests. Again, look up the definition of a sociopath. The judge missed this, and it doesn't take a psychiatrist. In her ruling yesterday, she praised the mother for her homeschooling skills and chastised the father for violating court orders and not knowing anything about homeschooling a special needs child. Then she gave HIM exactly what he wanted. He will be doing half of this beautiful child's schooling. She increased the time the child is separated from her child. By the way, when the child is at the fathers, he is alone most of the time. He by the way, when the child is at the fathers, he is alone most of the time. Father and son are in the same geographical location, i.e. the father's house, But the child spends most of his time in his room, on the computer, while the father goes on as if the child is not even there. I know this, because I am the child's aunt. His father hates it when he Skype's me, but he does it anyway. He tells me he wants me to Skype him there because he is bored. Best interest of the child? In this case, with this father, the best interest of the child would've been served differently. If I had this case just side, with the information this judge had, my decision would've been very different. It would've been in the best interest of THIS child. Custody would've been with the mother. Initially, father would have Wednesday night dinner and every other weekend with his child. The father would've been ordered to complete the parenting class and he refused to complete under another court order. He would've been required to get psychological counseling to help him prepare to be a better parent. He would be in order to do a series of things within the next six months to prove to the court that he was capable of coparenting or at least doing some of the education for his child. At this point it is clearly been shown that that is not the case currently. Then all parties would return to revisit this issue in six months. At that time, the fax could be reevaluated. Perhaps the parent would have reached a point where he is capable of interacting with the mother without torturing her harassing her and being toxic and his own child's life. If that was the case, I would make changes. He would have earned them. However, at this point he deserves none of that. This judge wasted court time and the respondents money. I don't really care about the petitioners money, he is the cause of all this, he is the toxic elements here. This court was supposed to make a judgment in the best interest of the child. This was not done in this case. I fear it will never be done in any of her cases. My advice to anyone who comes before this judge in a dissolution of marriage case, is to have your attorney paper her. I do not know that any of the judges in Los Angeles Superior Court are any better. I do know that the best interest of the child will not be served in this court. The only thing I can imagine is that she was not wanting to come back in six months to take a look at the father. She just wanted over with. And she didn't care about the damage she did. God, help us all.

For the imbeciles that claim Judge Hall makes the best decisions. Please answer this: When evidence was presented of the parent she favored to have FULL custody that they have drugs around the child, death threats on them and the child due to their actions in the streets, a dedicated gang member, hits the child, transports the TODDLER with no car seat and THROWING UP GANG SIGNS IN THE COURT BUILDING FOR A SELFIE to celebrate he won and she still favors him, how does she make the best decisons. The one favored doesnt work! The one who is being deprived always held a great job, has their own and has never put the kid in any danger nor engage in any activity that will do so and has an education! Please tell me how was that a good decision. When CHILDREN three little girls took that stand and cried to Judge Hall and the mediator that they'd rather stay with their mom because their father beats the crap out of them, she still grants him SOLE PHYSICAL CUSTODY! When a father broke down to this wicked judge that his kid is suicidal because the judge wont allow the teen to be with her father instead of her alcoholic abusive mother and this woman did nothing but tell that man NO!!!!!!! The child is now In a nut house for god sake!!!! What about the child who has a stable mother to take care of him but this witch rules for the toddler to be with the father whom drinks and parties daily and never home, im sorry HIS BOAT HOUSE he leaves him with nannies and such! How on earth are those good decisions!!! And that is NOT limited to everyone else's lives and children she has DAMAGED! She only favors those who file the case not using her brain that the ones that are filing are the ones with the issues because they are more worried about revenge than the well being of their child! She actually caught the father of my child in lies, called him out but f**** laughed about it and still favored this weak and abusive individual!!! He even told her I can just take my kid but all she did was ignore that and continued to give her to him even with all the evidence that he is unfit mentally and Physically Now Im going to ask you guys one more time!!!!!! How are those the best decisons! And knowing that there's only TWO positive reviews, it shows youre either her friend or you are one of the childish deadbeats that were favored in spite of your co-parent for your own personal issues. Either way SHAME ON YOU. This woman is destroying the next generation of kids and families keeping the tension and harm in these households! Mind your business and let these people get their justice FOR THEIR CHILDREN. Unlike you other psychos that just WANT YOUR WAY!

This judge appeared to be paying attention, and she was taking what appeared to be excellent notes. I say appeared because obviously she paid no attention at all. The judge herself caught the husband in multiple lies and pointed them out. That's perjury. Oh, well, ok in this court. This man had been harassing his wife for three years through phone calls emails and in person. All that was put into evidenced by her attorney. Very clear he is in capable of coparenting. You cannot coparent with a sociopath. The respondent in this case has been through so much, and this judge decided to continue the torture. The husband's attorney wrote a ridiculous closing argument, full of negative things about the mother. Not much about the best interest of the child. The mother's attorney wrote a closing argument tying all the things together that he had shown, proven, in court. This judge had all the information before her, enough to make the right decision. All the mother wanted was to be able to have a child during the week to do his homeschooling. She wanted to be able to make all the decisions regarding schooling, because the husband is not capable of coparenting. He will never agree to anything the mother suggests. Again, look up the definition of a sociopath. The judge missed this, and it doesn't take a psychiatrist. In her ruling yesterday, she praised the mother for her homeschooling skills and chastised the father for violating court orders and not knowing anything about homeschooling a special needs child. Then she gave HIM exactly what he wanted. He will be doing half of this beautiful child's schooling. She increased the time the child is separated from her child. By the way, when the child is at the fathers, he is alone most of the time. He by the way, when the child is at the fathers, he is alone most of the time. Father and son are in the same geographical location, i.e. the father's house, But the child spends most of his time in his room, on the computer, while the father goes on as if the child is not even there. I know this, because I am the child's aunt. His father hates it when he Skype's me, but he does it anyway. He tells me he wants me to Skype him there because he is bored. Best interest of the child? In this case, with this father, the best interest of the child would've been served differently. If I had this case just side, with the information this judge had, my decision would've been very different. It would've been in the best interest of THIS child. Custody would've been with the mother. Initially, father would have Wednesday night dinner and every other weekend with his child. The father would've been ordered to complete the parenting class and he refused to complete under another court order. He would've been required to get psychological counseling to help him prepare to be a better parent. He would be in order to do a series of things within the next six months to prove to the court that he was capable of coparenting or at least doing some of the education for his child. At this point it is clearly been shown that that is not the case currently. Then all parties would return to revisit this issue in six months. At that time, the fax could be reevaluated. Perhaps the parent would have reached a point where he is capable of interacting with the mother without torturing her harassing her and being toxic and his own child's life. If that was the case, I would make changes. He would have earned them. However, at this point he deserves none of that. This judge wasted court time and the respondents money. I don't really care about the petitioners money, he is the cause of all this, he is the toxic elements here. This court was supposed to make a judgment in the best interest of the child. This was not done in this case. I fear it will never be done in any of her cases. My advice to anyone who comes before this judge in a dissolution of marriage case, is to have your attorney paper her. I do not know that any of the judges in Los Angeles Superior Court are any better. I do know that the best interest of the child will not be served in this court. The only thing I can imagine is that she was not wanting to come back in six months to take a look at the father. She just wanted over with. And she didn't care about the damage she did. God, help us all.

This is my personal opinion: I believe Judge Hall must be removed from the bench and prosecuted for color of law violations. Please go to the FBI website and look up color of law violations, that result in kidnapping, and deprivation of civil rights. Three major statutes for color of law violations are:Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241, 242 and 245 When Judge Hall aids parents in kidnapping their children, when she intentionally, willfully maliciously violates a lawful custodian of their rights of custody, she is committing the crime of deprivation of custody and denial of access. When judge Hall denies litigants of their rights to due process, and equal protection, when she allows parties to hold exparte hearings with no notice and no opportunity to be heard, for no valid reason, in order to falsely accuse a parent of a crime against their child in order to gain an advantage in their custody battle, that is a color of law violation. Please educate yourself on the law and learn about your rights and know that the constitution protects us from judges like Hall that constantly violate our civil rights. I'm not going to bother filing a complaint with the commission, it will go nowhere. Definitely won't bother filing a complaint with Judge Nelson, she will protect her - they go way back. They were both appointed as judges at the same time, by Schwarzenegger when he was Governor. Judge Nelson covers up all of Hall's "mistakes", and Judge Nelson is protected also. She violates the law openly and no one does anything about it. The FBI however, are a completely separate entity and they root out corruption. Taking down a corrupt judge can make a federal prosecutor's and FBI investigator's career. So this is were we need to go with our complaints. Go to the Department of Justice website and read up on the latest cases that they have prosecuted so you can understand the type of violations of civil rights and public corruption that are simply not tolerated. This will give you a lot of courage and renewed faith in our justice system. Judge Hall routinely violates our children's civil rights, in particular their right to be protected from illegal search and seizure, forced detention, right to an attorney, and privilege of the writ of habeas corpus. For us parents, the family court is as lawless as the wild west. In criminal law you are innocent until proven guilty, but not in family court. In family court, Judge Hall will strip a parent of their inalienable rights to their children based on a request for a hearing for an unfounded allegation made during an exparte communication - not even a hearing.. made by the opposing party's counsel, without notice for "just cause" which is never specified of course, and no opportunity to be heard. Did you get that? Judge Hall will strip a parent of their rights, grant instant temporary custody orders (but they are permanent.. it's the writing on the wall), based off a REQUEST for a hearing.. for a domestic violence restraining order.. which allows the requestor (a wife beater) to seize the children from their mother (the victim of the wife beater) without any notice or opportunity to be heard.. Judge Hall issues these "warrants" like candy to any wife beater if they suspect their wife might ask for a restraining order and wants Judge Hall's assistance to "beat his wife to a restraining order". From then on, Judge Hall assists the wife beater in whatever he needs to keep his pesky wife from "bothering him". Even when the victimized wife proves that the allegations are false, Hall will not reverse her decision or hold the lying party in contempt. She doesn't care. Whatever the wife beater wants, he gets.. Supervised visitation? post a bond? Psychiatric evaluation? If the abusive husband says "oh my ex-wife keeps begging me to see the kids and this is bothering me, I want a restraining order, I think she is crazy.." Judge Hall smiles and gives him exactly what he wants.. and the poor mother who has police reports showing the history of abuse and his arrest record for assaulting her.. Judge Hall doesn't care. But when the abusive ex husband tells Judge Hall that the mother of his children takes antidepressants for post-partum depression and then makes his own diagnosis that she is "crazy", Judge Hall agrees to his demand that his ex-wife undergo a psychiatric evaluation in order to qualify for supervised visits with her children. And before you know it? Judge Hall takes the children away from their mother and gives sole custody to the abuser. This is routine in Judge Hall's court room and not a God damn thing gets done about it. She constantly puts children in the care of abusers, and allows abusers to terrorize their victims. She gives abusers all the tools they need to destroy their victims and she fully enjoys it. I have seen this go the other way too, where Hall has allowed a completely evil borderline personality mother falsely accuse a father of sexual abusing their daughter. It turned out that the mother didn't want to get accused of neglect because she allowed her daughters to be babysat by a young boy that was actually messing with one of the daughters, and complained to her father who took her to a doctor and was of course furious and incredibly concerned for the welfare of his daughters.. But instead of the mother getting rid of this babysitter, and being a good mother and protecting her daughters, she and Judge Hall tortured this innocent father for the next 3 years. He lost everything, but never gave up on his daughters and finally got his rights back, but for 3 years he had to endure supervised visitation and was not allowed to even hug his daughters. The ex-wife was never held accountable for lying, and depriving her daughters of their father and their father of his kids. This woman never provided a shred of evidence for Judge Hall to strip this man of his rights, his reputation, his happiness, due process and equal protection. Just her statement during an exparte hearing. I kid you not. This is kidnapping folks. This is extortion and harassment. I have watched Judge Hall gang up on pro se litigants and literally argue the case for the side that has the attorney!! I have seen her allow the abuser to get away with perjury, fraud, trickery, and legal abuse, and Judge Hall will help them and actually make erroneous rulings, without even trying to come up with a legal basis (because it doesn't exist in the law) simply because she says so... "the court finds..." or even "on the courts own motion"... I'm not an attorney, but since I'm going through my own divorce, I am familiar with the California code and I'm horrified when I watch her make these "erroneous rulings".. because it's her "go to". This is how she gives the side she wants to win, exactly what they want, even if it is completely against the law. She does it with a smile. It leaves the victimized losing side so devastated because they know they have been violated, truly violated by the system, in every sense of the word. Judge Hall does this to people who she knows cannot afford to appeal her decisions. You see, when a judge makes an erroneous decision, you have to appeal it. An erroneous decision is one that is an error in the law. Judges do this all the time. Judges like Hall do it to torture the side they want to lose because its a way to make them lose where they know that they were violated, because they know the judge knows full well that the law was on their side, and chose to violate the law. However, when judges violate the law, if it's law that is within the jurisdiction of state law for example, a state judge may violate state law and enjoy complete immunity. Judge Hall and Judge Nelson use this immunity as a tool to give the side they want to win, the win, and frustrate and bankrupt the side they want to lose. And God help you if you don't know any better. Judge Hall knows all the little tricks to drag out litigation and give attorneys ways to overcharge their clients.. She will let attorneys she likes have their cases in the afternoon so they can bill their clients for the whole day.. But, back to the erroneous findings.. those are just the most evil tricks up her sleeve, because litigants lose and know that Hall made an error of law on purpose. Usually the error is so obvious. There is no room for interpretation. The opposing party's case should have been thrown out a hundred times before already, but this final insult to injury makes you think she has literally been paid, or just gets off on torturing people especially children and people who have been seriously abused by their spouses. At this point though, the losing party is complete broke and has no way of appealing, and automatically distrusts the judicial system because of the experience they just endured with Judge Hall. They first need time to recover and figure out where to go next. Judge Hall, and Judges like her, want to drag you through the system and wear you down until you are completely worn out emotionally, financially and spiritually. They want to "break you". It's especially easy to hurt parents because we are emotionally attached to our children. So, the loss of our children, the trauma of having our rights completely violated and our complete disillusionment and distrust in our justice system make it that much more difficult to fight and cope with the fear that this judge loves to put in every heart she targets. However, after speaking with many of her victims, and from my own experience, I have come to realize that there is a reason why she decided to pick on each of us. There is something about us that she saw that made her feel like she had to hurt us. Remember in school when the school yard bully, the jerk would pick on a kid and the kids around the bully would join in and pick on the kid too? That's judge Hall. She has no backbone. She has no integrity. She is a bully and she sides with bully's and seeks approval from bully's. It's how she gets validation. Remember the kid that would stick up for the kid that was bullied? The one that didn't care if the whole school laughed at them? That's the pro se litigant or the attorney of the bullied litigant and Judge Hall loves to use her position to show off to the high powered law firms she wants to impress, how she can help them mess up their often pro se opponents. When you go to court, you expect to be treated fairly. You expect that the judge who you are standing in front of, who you are placing your trust in, who has this position of power and authority, who has taken an oath to obey the law and the constitution, you expect that this person is going to be fair and unbiased. It's bad enough that you have to deal with the opposing party and their attorney and the case at hand. The last thing you should have to concern yourself with is the judge hearing your case. But when you find out, that you were dead in the water long before you entered that court room. When you realize that your fate was sealed before you presented your case, and that it never mattered what you said or did, you were never going to get a fair hearing, your faith in the entire justice system is destroyed completely... it takes time to recover from this and wrap your head around the horrible reality. But then you need to gather up the courage to do something about it, and it's not by appealing. Hell no. When a judge breaks the law, you can't find justice by appealing the decision. You can't find justice by filing a complaint with the commission because they don't concern themselves with that, they only concern themselves with "misconduct" and although I have to review it again, I don't recall any mention of color of law violations... just rudeness, and impropriety. However, the FBI and Department of Justice is dedicated to investigating public corruption, color of law violations, and the DOJ has an entire civil rights division and domestic violence prevention division.. and children rights division. If you are a victim of a crime that occurs in a Los Angeles court room DO NOT GO TO LAPD.. they don't concern themselves with federal law. What you are dealing with is federal law, the US constitution, your constitutional rights baby. And state judges do not have judicial immunity to violate your federal rights. They are held to a higher standard and have taken an oath to uphold the US constitution and to obey the constitution which is the Supreme law of the land. So, if your rights have been violated by a judge - you have the right to report it to the FBI, they are the only people who investigate civil rights violations by public officials.. people whose salaries are paid for by us tax payers.. including judges. The federal government has to root out corruption because if we have corruption in our judicial system, we lose faith in it completely and we have anarchy. The only way the FBI can take down corrupt officials is if they are reported. It's perfectly natural to be terrified of judges because they have so much power, but we the people are just as powerful. So, go ahead and order your transcripts from the hearings where you know that Judge Hall completely violated your rights and put your children in danger. You will be very surprised that they don't cost very much. Be really sweet to the court reporters, they are overworked and underpaid and incredibly good at what they do, and they are from my experience above all else the most ethical people in the court room. Don't let Judge Hall see you talking to a court reporter.. in case she pressures them to change anything. Contact them outside of the court by phone, you can get the number on the court website. Discretely order CERTIFIED copies of the minute orders from the hearings and keep your originals. Send photocopies of these things along with your complaints and be sure to include how you have been severely HARMED emotionally and financially. And take a look at your case file.. you can use an app on your phone like tiny scan to take photos of each page for free.. remember to ask for your file more than three weeks before your next hearing date or she won't release your file.. she's a witch like that. And please report back and let us know what actions you have taken to encourage others to do the same. I wish you all strength and the positive outcome to your cases that you hope for. I will report back soon about my own case and what I'm doing about it. IMPORTANT: If you have information of a crime or suspicious activity, including events taking place within a judicial proceeding, judicial corruption, obstruction of justice, witness, evidence, or jury tampering, or illegal asset and monetary seizure, embezzlement, or conversion, please contact the FBI, at: 415-553-7400 fbi.dallas@ic.fbi.gov phoenix@ic.fbi.gov san.francisco@ic.fbi.gov richmond@ic.fbi.gov portland@ic.fbi.gov seattle@ic.fbi.gov or the US Securities and Exchange Commission (703) 813-9322 fax, saltlake@sec.gov sanfrancisco@sec.gov newyork@sec.gov denver@sec.gov losangeles@sec.gov miami@sec.gov

I witnessed "Judge" Hall "rule" over dozens of case in the last three years. She is volatile and unpredictable. She is emotional and nonsensical in her rulings. This is what I witnessed over and over again.

Strikingly, almost all cases on this website are done JURYLESSLY. That is how these judicial thefts are being carried out. Get the jury involved, demand jury trials immediately even if your case has already been claimed to have been "adjudicated", if you feel the law was overlooked and evidence was disregarded, the grand jury is not allowed to be kept from the proceedings. Regardless of the particulars, if you feel you are the victim of crime or know somebody who is, report those wrongdoings to the nearest grand juries ASAP. ATTENTION: You can protect the JUSTICE System and oppose obstructions of JUSTICE. Demand JURY TRIALS be provided, TO SWEEP THESE ACTS OF WRONGDOING WITH THE JUSTICE OF THE GRAND JURY. With enough persistence you should be able to obtain a mailing address, email address, and/or fax number for a sitting grand jury in your area. Send your evidence presentment in all possible means, ASAP. Any person that tells you that you do not have the right to present knowledge of WRONGDOING to your district grand jury is acting in contradiction to law, and aiding and abetting, adhering, giving comfort to enemies (and enemy forces, organized crime) of this country and United States. If you have knowledge of what you believe to be wrongdoing/crimes, immediately report that evidence to your nearest grand juries ASAP, and law enforcement, local, state, and federal (district attorney, police, sheriff, state attorney General, FBI, securities and exchange commission, US Marshall service, etc. etc.)

Poster 7557 Checking Back IN.. Are the rumours true? Is Judge Hall off the Bench? It's a Miracle and nobody seems to be talking about it... but lets make some NOISE and demand answers. It's time we make our voices heard and the press hears about this. The more attention this gets, the more they will take an investigation seriously. I was able to find out that on April 20th JUDGE TAMARA E HALL WAS REASSIGNED. She is now in Department 93 at the Airport Courthouse doing god knows what. If anyone knows, pray tell. When a judge is reassigned it means they are under review. Please submit your complaints against her to the authorities immediately. Now is when your voice must be heard. She has committed countless acts of fraud on the court, and color of law violations as well as egregious violations of the judicial code of ethics. She must be removed from her position on the bench and face the consequences for her horrendous abuse of authority and the suffering she inflicted on the families and children she abused. In other news... The head of the Family Law Division, Maren E. Nelson, who had just been re-elected last spring was also re-assigned this past January. Am I missing something? The head of the family law division of 60 court houses across Los Angeles Country gets "reassigned" and is no longer doing family law.. and not even a tiny article written about it in the LA times? In my particular case, Judge Nelson covered up for Judge Hall's civil rights violations against me and my son and I reported it to the DA. Judge Nelson violated our civil rights to a Hague proceeding and claimed "res judicata" (the matter had already been heard) by Judge Hall., and therefore she could not hear the 148 page pleading from the Child Abduction Special Prosecution Section. Say whaaaaat???? What does that have to do with the fact my 3 year old son was kidnapped a year ago by his father???? Are you trying to say that I am not permitted a hearing pursuant to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction because a month after my son was abducted, my husband was able to get a judge to say he wasn't abducted? What about after he got the orders? After he got the orders he disobeyed THOSE ORDERS and judge Hall then granted him a domestic violence restraining order against me for the next 9 months so he could legally disobey her orders because I was "disparaging him" by going though the Hague Convention for a return order for my son. Even when I showed Judge Hall that my husband had been arrested in Canada and charged with assault for choking me in front of our two year old son, and showed his bail conditions in Canada, she didn't care. She granted his request BECAUSE he was arrested and charged in Canada and he claimed he was being disparaged by this. His restraining order request still asked that visits remain the same even though he only permitted 2 the first nine months of my sons abduction. But Hall checked off the boxes saying that I may have ZERO contact with my child pending the Hague hearing....4 months later. Even after the DA child abduction unit intervened and wrote her a letter advising her of my rights under the convention and that by law she may not make decisions regarding custody, she ignored the letter and she permitted, no she ordered my son's kidnapping and complete concealment of all information about him even from a third party. All parental kidnappers pull the crap of getting custody orders at their destination and lying through their teeth to justify getting sole legal custody orders. In my husband's case he only managed to get joint and that wasn't good enough, he wanted sole and that I have zero rights and zero contact and that he have an anonymous address I kid you not) To accomplish this they must be outrageous with their lies, but how often does a judge not only sanction but fully participate!! Worse, how often do their supervising judges violate international law in front of the DA to cover for their subordinates?. Us "left behind" parents have to prove our case before we get to this hearing!!! WE have to prove our case to our central authority in our home country, in my case Canada, who then submits it to the Central Authority of the country where the child was abducted, in this case the USA. Once the case is approved by the State Dept. Office of Children's issues, it goes to the Child Abduction Unit of the Los Angeles DA office who do a THOROUGH INVESTIGATION into left behind parent and the taking parent and then once they make sure they have a legitimate kidnapping case, the DA prepares a pleading on behalf of the State for the return of the kidnapped child to the child's habitual residence of Canada in my care to continue with the custody action I filed in Canada. I was thoroughly vetted and had proven a "prima facie case". But judge Nelson had the nerve to say that I did not have a prima facie case, that I had accepted the jurisdiction of the court (even though she was literally reading from my special appearance response in open court, a declaration which legally declares that I soon not accept the jurisdiction of the court!!!) and claimed I made a general appearance. She was unbelievable. She just wanted to rewrite history, for the record. Did she forget there is a DA and a court reporter in the room? She even had the audacity to compare me to a vexatious litigant. She told me I was supposed to appeal Halls decision as if this was a custody hearing and not a kidnapping case.. and the only reason for all this insanity was to establish for the record that Judge Hall did not exceed her jurisdiction when she helped my husband kidnap our son. The reason for this is, if she exceeded her jurisdiction, she forfeited her judicial immunity and she was personally liable for the actions she took as if she was acting as a private citizen, abusing her position as a judge, which is corruption. The big coverup that Judge Hall has been trying to accomplish stems from the very first ultravires orders she made on June 5th 2015, when she stripped my son and I of our civil rights without notice or opportunity to be heard, after receiving improper exparte communications from my husbands attorney. In her chambers, knowing that my husband and I live with our son in Vancouver Canada, and that my husband had filed for dissolution of marriage against me two weeks prior in California, knowing that he had not submitted a proof of service according to the hague convention on proper service of international documents, she made an illegal order about people she did not have personal or subject matter jurisdiction over. My husband's attorney, claimed our son lived at a UPS mailbox address in marina del rey and that I fled to Canada and abducted our son and demanded that my husband be given immediate have temporary sole legal custody and I have no contact with our minor son. she stripped me of all my rights of custody, without notice, without a hearing. Worse she did it knowing I am not subject to her jurisdiction because my husband has NEVER claimed that I was a resident of California. Judge Hall had the information right in front of her and was told that the human beings she was being asked to seize authority over, were not in California. Why she drew up orders for people that resided in another country, that ordered the removal of the child from his mother custody, from his home, and given to his father, who has no home in California, but who would be taking him from Canada.. that's international kidnapping. She ordered an international kidnapping. The only other pages in the file the moment Reeds attorney asked Hall to do this, were the family law cover sheet and my husbands declaration under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act where he stated under penalty of perjury that we resided in Canada since April 2014. The family law cover sheet also shows that the matter before the court was dissolution of marriage only. The exparte 2 weeks later and the extreme change in story and claim I abducted our son was my husbands way of accusing me of a felony in order to strip me of all of my parental rights. Judge Hall abused her authority as a judge in Los Angeles county and caused a woman and a child to be kidnapped from Canada by using force, fear and fraud. She exceeded her jurisdiction because she did not nor will she ever have personal or subject matter jurisdiction over my son and I because these things cannot be obtained by force or fraud and they cannot be relinquished. You either have it or you don't. And you certainly cannot seize it and say that your authority it retroactive PRIOR TO COMMENCEMENT OF PROCEEDINGS. That is completely absurd. But Judge Hall did all of these things. Repeatedly over the last 2 years. I believe Nelson was trying too hard to cover up for Hall. So hard she pointed out all the obvious flaws and gave away her personal agenda when she initially "dismissed my case" but later made a "finding of habitual residence" that was later put in Judge Hall's case file!!! It was her way of covering for her friend. Nelson thought since she can make an "erroneous finding" she has immunity for this decision and she can buy judge hall's immunity as well. But Nelson would be incorrect, because for starters, she committed fraud on the court which vitiates the entire proceedings. Secondly, as I mentioned previously, an erroneous decision is one that is within your subject matter jurisdiction. Judge Nelson did not make a decision that was within the scope of the subject matter jurisdiction that was before the court that morning. She made a finding completely out of left field that had absolutely nothing to do with the scope of the subject matter of the proceedings that she was tasked to preside over. The finding she made was never entered in the official records, instead it was put into the file of a different case altogether, and it was used for an improper purpose and a form of improper exparte communication that is expressly prohibited in the Hague Convention, Judicial Code of Ethics, and California Code of Civil Procedure. It also violated federal conflict of interest laws that prohibit a judge from interfering with federal proceeding/ outcome of a federal decision. Hague Proceedings are incredibly structured. The parental kidnapping prevention act outlines exactly the scope of the proceeding, and in a nutshell, the kidnapper is in the spotlight and must hand over the children voluntarily or submit to the hearing where THEY must convince the judge that the children would suffer immediate grave physical or psychological harm if returned to the left behind parent. Short of imminent danger? The abducted child is to be immediately returned to their home to their "habitual residence" and reunited with their left behind parent. The convention is designed to return children quickly and custody proceeding continue where the child had been living prior to his abduction. In my case Judge Nelson permitted my son's kidnapping, so that Judge Hall would't get in trouble for permitting my son's kidnapping. I have PTSD from the trauma I have endured the past two years. Writing this post is helping me organize my thoughts for the commission and authorities. I share this also to encourage others who share similar outrageous injustice at the hands of these judges. Speak now please. I hope our stories will put an end to the senseless injustice that goes on in our courtrooms today. These courtrooms are public, and we have the ability to shut this kind of injustice down immediately when it rears its ugly head. This should not go on for years and years . We need to create a watchdog organization across the US and Canada - volunteers who sit in on family court proceedings wearing a very nametape or something so they are easily identifiable by judges and litigants and attorneys who will think twice about misbehaving if one of us walks in the court room. I will report back again soon. Good luck every one!

T.Hall (can not even call her Judge) is an embarrassment as a public official. We depend on our judges to be wise and prudent with their decisions. T.Hall is neither. Her rash decision placed children with a meth addict father, then when another judge gave the mother sole custody T.Hall made her and the children move out of the house- leaving them literally homeless. She also ordered the mother to sign a $350k loan against the home that were trying to sell. All so the father would have money. Neither one of them had jobs to even pay it back. LUDICROUS! Is it even constitutional to force someone into a loan and incur debt they don't want and can't afford? Not to mention that she is trying to divorce and end contracts with him. Please get this terrible power-hungry egomaniac off the bench so she is no longer able to ruin anyone else's lives.

I witnessed an incredibly positive outcome in Tamara Hall's courtroom. Yes, she is strong willed and commands respect. She deserves it. It is not simply by accident that she has reached her current position on the bench. In this case, she saw that it was the mother who made false accusations toward the father. She saw that the mother purposely kept the minor child from the father for no legitimate reason. The father fought continuously in court for years to gain access to his child only for the mother to purposefully cause problems and delays with having the case reach trial. She saw it was the mother with her own actions who sacrificed the child's right to a relationship with a loving, responsible, respectable father. It was the mother who harmed the child. It was the mother who ignored the child's medical and developmental needs. She was completely FAIR with her judgement. Tamara Hall read every single page of the case file. Looked at every photo submitted as evidence. Listened to the mother contradict herself while her lies fell apart in front of the court room. She cited the law and set orders that would best benefit the child. To this day, because Tamara Hall's order, the minor child is flourishing. He receives therapy services coordinated by his father. He is finally in a proper care setting provided by his father, he is reaching milestones for personal, academic and social development. None of this would be possible had it not been for judge Tamara Hall. Judge Tamara Hall did a fantastic job. She gave a father a relationship with his son, but most importantly she gave a little boy a relationship with his father and protected that child's rights.

Judge Tamara Hall was MORE than fair. She saw through all the lies and excuses presented and made a fair judgment based on facts, not hearsay. She didn't take any BS from anyone (either side), and that was refreshing. Judge Hall was respectful of our time and didn't mince words. I wish more judges were like her.

I witnessed "Judge" Hall "rule" over dozens of case in the last three years. She is volatile and unpredictable. She is emotional and nonsensical in her rulings. This is what I witnessed over and over again.

Poster 7557 checking back in with an update! Thank you #7743 please contact me via my change dot org petition or twitter @hunters_law Or Facebookpage: Hunters Law - I really need to ask you advice about filing this complaint and want to pursue a civil rights complaint as well.. I am hoping to prompt an FBI and grand jury investigation into Judge Hall's direct participation in my son's kidnapping from Canada two years ago. I have started a petition on change.org called Hunter's Law named after my son whose whereabouts are unknown. Please sign the petition at change.org Look for: Department of Justice Hunter's Law Under the username: marika taylor Please sign and share!!! Judge Hall issued illegal kidnapping orders for the unlawful transportation of my 3 year old son son by force and threat of force and fraud, without notice or opportunity to be heard, without legal authority, because my son and i lived in Canada with my husband for over a year prior to the illegal exparte orders in California. I will be posting all the information on a website in the next few days so the public, press and law enforcement can access the information. Judge Hall later ordered me to bring Hunter to California even though I showed judge Hall that a custody action commenced in Vancouver, and i told her that I didn't accept the jurisdiction of the court.. and my husband even signed the UCCJEA declaration and stated we lived in Canada presently! Judge Hall simply kidnapped my son under color of law. I'm hoping my son's kidnapping will be investigated under federal statute 28 USC 540a investigation of violent crimes against travelers because my son was kidnapped when we traveled to California for a hearing we were ordered to attend. Judge Hall did not have the authority to not permit me to return home to Canada with my son! We were staying at a hotel!! We had no home in California!!! No money, no place to stay, all our belongings in Canada. My son was kidnapped under color of law and he has been wrongfully detained in California for the past two years because Judge Hall has issued restraining orders against me prohibiting all contact with my son in order to cover up her crime and intimidate and harass me. Please support my petition so that my case can be investigated, so my son will finally be rescued and returned home to Canada. I was his sole guardian since he was born, until he was kidnapped. His father now has nannies care for my son round the clock and permits no contact whatsoever.. and they have disappeared. I don't know there whereabouts or anything about my son's welfare. I need all the help I can get. My son has been kidnapped for two years. Ive exhausted every Civil remedy available.. now I have no choice but to file a criminal complaint against the judge to committed this horrible crime against me and my son, and demand that our victims rights be recognized, protected and enforced by federal and international laws and federal law enforcement.

Her temperament is a disgrace to the bench, the legal system and common decency. This individual fails to display a single positive or redeeming quality in the performance of her duties. This individual appears to view her position as a judge as an outlet to act like a mean spirited child.

I have uploaded my entire case file documenting Judge Tamara Hall's involvement in my son's kidnapping to: www.hunterslaw.org If there are any other victims who have had their children abducted by Judge Hall, please contact me at the website and share your story so we can help each other recover our children. Here is a copy of my first article on my blog, detailing exactly how Judge Tamara how got involved with the initial conspiracy to kidnap my son. Unfortunately she didn't stop at this initial attempt. I am currently working on my complaint against Judge Hall that I will be submitting to the Commission, the Department of Justice, the FBI and the grand jury. I will post all of these complaints on my website, and invite others to share their complaints on my website as well. California Judge ordered international kidnapping of 3 year old boy from Canada. On the morning of June 5th 2015, in chambers, sometime after 8:30 am at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse at 111 North Hill Street in Los Angeles, California, Superior Court Judge Tamara E. Hall issued exparte orders to unlawfully transport a 3 year old boy across an international border by force, threat of force and fraud. Moments later, these orders were emailed to the father, who was waiting outside his sole family residence in Vancouver, BC Canada. At 11:43 am the father attempted to have these orders enforced by the local police in Vancouver, Canada. The Vancouver Police report on June 6, 2015 at 5:30 pm states that the court order did not have the relevant court markings and was not enforceable in British Columbia, Canada. According to Section 283 (1) of the Canadian Criminal Code, this was an attempted abduction in absence of a Canadian Custody Order, because the child was less than 14 years old, no Canadian custody order existed, but parental rights of custody under statute or common law exist. In this case, since the child was residing with his mother and father in Vancouver Canada for over a year, the British Columbia Family Law Act, and the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Vancouver, had jurisdiction over matters of child custody. The Vancouver Police Report documents the father’s multiple attempts to kidnap his son internationally, using these same exparte court orders issued by a judge in chambers, in another country, without notice or opportunity to be heard, in violation of The Hague Convention on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters, and the California and Federal Code of Civil Procedure that prohibits Exparte orders of this kind and requires that respondents be given proper, timely service and opportunity to respond, at the residence of the respondent when they reside in a foreign country. Judge Tamara Hall, a family court judge in California, knowingly and willfully committed a laundry list of federal violent crimes when she issued the warrant to unlawfully search for and seize a child by force, threat of force and fraud. The warrant stripped the mother of all her rights of custody and access to her child indefinitely, in violation of her rights of custody and guardianship of her child according to the British Columbia Family Law Act, which includes her right to decide where she would like to live with her child. The warrant then specifically ordered that the child’s passports or visas be given to the father’s attorney, and that the child would be transported across an international border, in violation of the Canada Criminal Code, because Canadian law requires a Canadian court order or the mother’s consent. No judge has the authority to make such orders about a child and his mother that reside in another sovereign nation. Judge Tamara Hall willfully violated Canadian Family Law, the Canada Criminal Code, International Law, US Federal Kidnapping Law, California State Kidnapping Law, the US Constitution, the Judicial Code of Ethics, and her actions are grounds for impeachment, federal indictment, a civil rights lawsuit and a civil suit for intentional infliction of emotional distress. At the time she made the orders, Judge Tamara Hall knew that the 3 year old boy resided in Vancouver, Canada since April 2014 with both his parents, because the father filed a Declaration Under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, where he stated that he was presently residing in Canada with his wife and son for over a year. According to California Law and US Federal Law, Judge Tamara Hall was prohibited from making any orders regarding child custody, because the child resided with both his parents at their sole family residence in another sovereign nation. Any orders she made are void and not merely voidable, because their were made in excess of her authority; she lacked both subject-matter and personal jurisdiction, therefore the orders and any subsequent orders she made are void, forever are nullity, and subject to collateral attack at any time. Judges are prohibited from acting “in excess of their authority”. A California Judge can only issue orders that are enforceable in California, by California or US Federal Law Enforcement. Judges can only issue orders for residents of California, and only orders regarding subject-matter that the judge has the authority to make orders about. In this particular case, Judge Tamara Hall did not have subject-matter jurisdiction over child custody matters, because the child lived in Canada according to the father’s own Declaration that legally prohibited the judge from claiming subject-matter jurisdiction. Judge Tamara Hall, willfully conspired with the father and his attorney Nicholas A. Salick to the commit the offence of kidnapping a child from Canada, when she without legal authority, granted the father temporary sole legal custody, and wrote additional orders in her own hand writing: “immediate return of minor to USA into Petitioners care, release of minors passports or VISAS to Petitioners counsel, and no visits to respondent”. Judge Hall issued illegal orders for the sole purpose of being used in another country as an illegal warrant. The purpose of the warrant was to intimidate, terrify and submit the mother and force her to hand over her child, under the threat of arrest, criminal charges and the fraudulent threat of criminal prosecution for International kidnapping, that would be waiting for her in the United States if she didn’t cooperate. The warrant was procured maliciously without probable cause, in violation of the mother’s rights of custody in Canada and in violation of Canadian law, for the sole purpose of kidnapping the child across the Canada/USA border without the mother’s consent and without a Canadian court order. Prior to becoming a Superior Court Judge in the Los Angeles family court, Judge Tamara Hall was a prosecutor for the Hardcore Gang Unit, at the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. Judge Tamara Hall committed an act of terrorism, and specifically a violation of US Federal law that prohibits the conspiracy to kidnap people outside the United States: Title 18 USC 956 states: Conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim, or injure persons or damage property in a foreign country “(a)(1) Whoever, within the jurisdiction of the United States, conspires with one or more other persons, regardless of where such other person or persons are located, to commit at any place outside the United States an act that would constitute the offense of murder, kidnapping, or maiming if committed in the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States shall, if any of the conspirators commits an act within the jurisdiction of the United States to effect any object of the conspiracy, be punished as provided in subsection (a)(2). “(2) The punishment for an offense under subsection (a)(1) of this section is– “(A) imprisonment for any term of years or for life if the offense is conspiracy to murder or kidnap;
