6221. attorney (private practice)

In over twelve years of practice, by far and away the worst judge I have interacted with on the bench. She effectively granted us the relief we wanted, but not before she disregarded Judge Elfving's (who probably has been on the bench longer than Judge McGowen has been barred) ruling on the exact same application and before she belittled most of the lawyers that appeared before her today. She was nasty, awful and downright unprofessional in the way she treated lawyers and parties. In all her rulings, she demonstrated clear bias in favor of the defendant. She also has little regard for the practicalities of efficient litigation and completely lost the forest for the trees in terms of the law. Today, watching Judge McGowen, I was embarrassed to be a female and an attorney.

As a family law judge, Beth McGowen is disgraceful. She is arrogant, cares about her own opinions more than administering justice, is disrespectful, misinformed and prejudges her cases. I don't believe she reads the pleadings of the party she intends to rule against. She seems to adopt the position of the side she favors without regard for the facts or the law. Her singular goal seems to be to move cases along and she cuts corners to do so - truncating discovery, not allowing children's voices to be heard in any way shape or form, cutting off testimony before critical facts are argued, etc. She is a disgrace to hard working women everywhere and to the justice system. There are many children who will have worse than awful childhoods because of her.

A unique combination of arrogance and incompetence, she acts as though she knows things she does not and does not see the process as one in which she could be wrong about anything. Her favorite trick is to issue a ruling and prevent anyone from responding since it would show how little she knows about the case.

I would like to write and inform everyone of this disgraceful Judge, she doesn't read the pleadings nor understands the law, and Create damages beyond repair for children and their parents. She should barred from Practicing law in the United States of America and she should be publically adminsihed and go through Shaming for what she is doing;. She doesn't repsect the parents role in the family, especially fathers, she doesn't listen, nor cares. Almost talking to a Beast not a Human. We wish to notify anyone and everyone that might be needed to be at her Court, Family Court department 75 in Santa Clara, to ask her to dismiss from their case. If you do not want to be treated like sub-human, please run away. She is a racist, discriminates based Sex, Hates Man, Hates any other race then hers And she should be dismissed from her duties. I would recommend to bring her to Justice, she is probably corrupted as well. If you read it Judge Mccagwen May God bring upon you all the bad things you have done to others. May you lose all contact with your children if you have any, and your grandkids and may you lose all that you hold dear like you have done to so many people who came to see Justice in your court and you have disregarded them. You are a horrible Judge and a horrible person. Shame on You !
