I've heard that THANKFULLLY Judge Morse is leaving the bench after the first of the year. Can anyone tell me if she was asked to leave family court or if it was her choice to do so? I really need to find that out for personal reasons. Thanks anyone who can help!I have no idea. The Santa Cruz court does announce the judicial assignments for the year, at the beginning of the year. If anyone has heard anything, please post in the comments.
Another reader tells me that he got confirmation that Commissioner Irwin H. Joseph was kicked out for incompetence, and has no chance of getting into family court in Santa Clara county because they only use full-tilt judges for that, not commissioners. Last I heard he was bragging about his family court background, but doing traffic court. We used to call him Junk Justice Joseph.
