REPORTER'S TRANSCRIPT ON APPEALHer transcript was obviously not complete. She only supplied about 10% of it.
From a Judgment of the Superior Court
For the County of Santa Cruz
BEFORE HONORABLE WILLIAM M. KELSAY, JUDGE
November 16, 2004
STATEMENT OF COMPLETED TRANSCRIPT
In response to a request for augmentation of the record for this date in this case, after review of my files for this date, I am not able to locate any additional proceedings on the record for this date other than what was submitted in Volume 1 of 9, Pages 1 though 8/250.
I really don't see how she could possibly be telling the truth. Don't court reporters have backups? Doesn't the court keep backups?
I formally requested the transcript on Jan. 29. Why does it take 7.5 months for her to say this?
The missing transcript has Judge William Kelsay giving a truly idiotic speech on child custody. He was substituting for the regular family court judge that day, and he knew nothing about the case. He admitted that he had not read any of the papers. He babbled about how time-share makes no difference, and then ordered a change in time-share. He bragged about how many child custody trial he had presided over, and then admitted that he had made a mess of every single one of them.
I think that the court personnel are covering up for Judge Kelsay's incompetence.
