Response from presiding judge

I just got this letter from the presiding judge:
I am in receipt of your letter dated September 3, 2008. 1 have made an investigation of your complaint regarding Commissioner Joseph and determined that there is no basis for further inquiry. All judicial officers of the Superior Court have equal authority under the law and no supervising judge may alter or modify the rulings or decisions of another judicial officer or assign another bench officer to hear a case pending before a court officer unless an appropriate motion is filed and granted.

If you are dissatisfied with the Court's action on your complaint, you have the right to request the Commission on Judicial Performance to review this matter under its discretionary jurisdiction to oversee the discipline of subordinate judicial officers. No further action will be taken on your complaint unless the Commission receives your written request within 30 days after the date this notice was mailed. The commission's address is:

Commission on Judicial Performance
455 Golden Gate Avenue, Suite 14400
San Francisco, California 94102 3660

Very truly yours

Presiding Judge of the Superior Court


Cc: Alex Calvo
Commissioner Irwin Joseph
He was responding to this letter. Cmr. Joseph had written a letter to my ex-wife in which he offered her a deal to find me in contempt of court.
