Blog attacks Irwin Joseph

A local blog writes:
Many in Santa Cruz, California refer to Commissioner, Irwin H. Joseph as, “Junk Justice Joseph.” On a local forum his many errors, omissions and habits are discussed, the details striking the reader as simple sloppiness.

Those who complain about the rulings coming from Joseph also note that he seems completely ignorant of the Constitution, ignoring the rights secured to individuals through the documents that, presumably, every American should understand. ...

Irwin Joseph is only a Commissioner. The role of commissioner has been described by one judge slightly south of Santa Cruz as, “a rent a cop; sort of like comparing real police to the guy who walks around the parking lot.” Additionally, Irwin Joseph, formerly a real estate attorney, has no oath on file at the Courthouse, unlike those elected to judgeships.
If Comm. Joseph were just sloppy and ignorant, he would not be so bad. He is far worse than that. He is malicious and vindictive.

In separate news, the governor passed over appointing Comm. Joseph to being a real judge again. Two Santa Cruz lawyers, Timothy Volkmann and Jacqueline M. Arroyo were just appointed to be superior court judges. Comm. Joseph has been begging for one of those appointments for three years, but it doesn't look like he is going to get one.

That blog seems to indicate that Commissioner Joseph is actively involved in an assassination plot...I'd say he's a wacko to be avoided not quoted!

What can we do to get him out of his position as the Commissioner of the Family Law court of Santa Cruz. I have a case soon to be heard by him and am trying to get it changed. But my ex-husband, (a local family law attorney, keeps switching courts around so that he will hear our case.

I don't know how Comm. Joseph keeps his job. When I find out, I'll post it.

I would describe J. Irwin (or whatever he is) as the WORST most sneering, drunk with power, rude, disrespectful, ridiculing, demeaning, condescending.....I was so shocked to be treated the way I was. I felt like I was some kind of lowly scum, making A MOCKERY OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ,WHO MAKES HIS RULINGS BASED SOLEY ON THE FABRICATIONS OF THE MEDIATOR, once the supervisor of CPS, C. A. Worse, my ex's mother is the director for a department in Family Services. Corruption much? IT IS DISGUSTING. I swear to God, he didn't even know what he was ruling on, clearly hadn't read my deposition, and actually seemed to forget that he stamped the order that gave sole legal and physical custody to my ex, without anything other than my ex's vindictive hearsay and slander. . I HAVE LOST MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER, 7 YEARS OLD, BASED ON MY RESENTFUL EX'S FALSE ALLEGATIONS, ALL OF WHICH I PROVED FALSE. THE BURDEN OF PROOF WAS ON THEM. In collaboration with CPS, who actually had closed my "case" the minute I signed over custody, before any kind of true investigation was done at akkm , and the "mediator", who I met for the first time, who outright lied about what she and I discussed, it seems like some sort of nightmare where the whole world is out to destroy our liver. I am a fulltime working RN, with a house and a little doggy, and I cry myself to sleep and wake up sobbing every day since I was coerced, lied to, and tricked by CPS and my EX, using intimidation tactics to make me sign under duress, with NO witness (I had no idea of my rights at the time), no informed consent, told it would be a "temporary" custodial" relinquishment of my custody, while I was single handedly moving my entire house and seeking employment...I was told that if I didn't my daughter would get put into foster care. they told me that. I was told that I would have to drug test that day in order to prove I was not using substances that my ex had alleged. Why did I agree to comply you might ask? because I truly thought I had to. I thought if I didn't sign I would lose her...isn't that ironic? I had NO idea that CPS are little unqualified idiots who will do ANYTHING to throw their weight around with immense power and a sinister intention, in which, 5 clean drug tests later, not ONE "dirty" test EVER, 5 months of total alienation from my little girl, not one spec of compelling substantiated or charges filed against me, of writing and filing and researching my rights, I have been ordered into a drug program? and 60 days of "random" drug testing...What on earth? Why do they think I am on drugs? I was furious in court on monday, june9th. I was stunned by the ruling, where I did not get my custody restored, at all. I did get 2 four hour visitations a week, which is way better than a few moments prior, but it's hard to thank a man who probably thinks he's being generous by "letting" me see my own little girl. Until I was tricked by my ex and CPS to sign that form, the one I stupidly did not read (idiot!), I had 50% custody, legal and physical. I would NEVER do this sort of thing to my ex. I told the commissioner that in this "family court" world, in which every civil right is violated and the "law" as we know it no longer exists. I said, 'GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT, IS THAT IT?" AND HE SAID, "THIS IS FAMILY LAW, NOT CRIMINAL." Ummmm....yeah, excuse me? what is the difference? Listen, I am with anyone who knows of any way of having this imposter removed, disbarred, and sued. He is ruining lives and beyond his obvious incompetence and lack of knowlege of law, our children are suffering without their God given right to both parents. My daughter was a happy healthy kid. I am not perfect, I may not have the Martha Stewart existence (praise the lord) but I have never endangered my kid and I deserve the right to my own child who I not only endured 36 hours of labor for, pushed for 4 hours with no pain medication, and breast fed for 3 years, while working 12 hour night shift full time and pumping on my breaks, but also the child that I love so much my heart hurts. I have not much money, my ex got the house and now, sadly my baby. I miss her so much. I rent a nice house and I work fulltime again. I am so ready for her. Please if you have any answers post them.

I wish that I had answers. I will post what I learn.

This Commisioner is bloody stupid fool and you write to everyone you know and post all over and tell everyone you know. Write the governor and everyone. He is an idiot. A big incompetant loser. He will burn in hell. Do not worry my friend.

You have to call ABA and get the necessary paper work to turn him in. Public policy has to come from this, he has to be put in front of the media and blow all of his conspirators out. He went against the state attorney general, in Washington for a kidnapping from a mother, the druggie father set her up, and she lost her child. He then gave her an attorney in family law court. YOU also need to get copies of all transcripts from each hearing. These are legally documents and if he has enough of them, he could not manipulate the wording. He took my children away, as my ex husband payed him. My ex husband is a drunk, proved it and a proved looser. I have been in school for a while and have never broken the law and have amazing people in my life that contribute to society, he needs to be removed period! And for those whom had cases, of CPS, they are not allowed to use the paper work prior to a case opening, the court has to order the department to release information after the case is open. Otherwise it is against the law. Just an FYI

Wow, I am in shock. After reading your blog, I am in shock that my instincts were, yet again, 100% correct. I had heard horror stories from other parents on how much of a circus like atmosphere the current Family Law Court System had become (Santa Clara County). The stories were so logically incomprehencable (somewhat like my spelling) that it boggled the inexperienced parent. One assumed it was an isolated experience strictly with THEIR case judge. Well, I was staying up late to finish making copies of documentation to present at my restraining order hearing (against my X, in front of the comissioner) but now, may decide to take the "Office Space" strategy approach instead. Instead of taking the mound of evidence actually proving harrassment: videos, audio of crank calls every week, about 20 police event cards, photographs, gun amunition found after my X moved out, repair quotes for keying my car, etc. etc. and roll the dice with something completely illogical. That being said, one question remains: Does a pair of Raider tickets trump a pair of 49er tickets?

I had "Commissioner" Irwin Joseph oversee my dissolution in Santa Clara County family court, and the man is the very embodiment and manifestation of satanic evil. He is incompetent, vicious, spiteful, hateful, heartless, irrational, malicious, arrogant, conceited, smug--and that is on a good day.

I grieve and commiserate with you if you signed the form allowing this demon to oversee your family case.

Commissioner Irwin Joseph always rules in favor of the petitioner except when the respondent is the wife. Commissioner Irwin Joseph is in department 72 of family law division in Santa Clara county. No recording devices of any kind are allowed in his courtroom.

Yes, he is indeed all of the above plus more. When a father allowed illegal fireworks around his children, one was badly burned, and guess what, in San Jose, fireworks are illegal. So, he said that the father can continue to do dangerous fireworks in San Jose but the children must remain a distance away. I thought Officers of the Court should follow the laws
, not condone that the laws be broken. He needs to go back to law school or retire. He should be ashamed.

Please do not post blog regarding fireworks in San Jose regarding Commissioner Joseph

Joseph Irwin is incompetent, its a shame the state lets him ruin so many lives.
There is a special place in hell for people such as he. He is totally bias for the "woman", I being a women am saying that. He has basically cause financial ruin and two children their stability - the mother is a liar and totally committed multiple counts of perjury that this guy ignored in the ruling. I still pray for justice in all of this, and do count on "what goes around comes around, two fold".
