Sadly, so many judges and commissioners in California courts have prostituted themselves to the landlords, abandoning their oath of office, to become the point man for the landlords. They even order the clerks to take illegal actions, and hold secret meetings to help the landlords win. Judges have absolute immunity, which they gave to themselves, so that even if they intentionally violate the law and the Constitution, they cannot be personally sued. Absolute immunity gives them absolute power, which in turn corrupts absolutely. The machine to fix all of the other machines in Society is itself the most broken. There are a few things that you can do to TRY to get fair hearings and a fair trial.
