The utter fictitious nature of the current proceedings being held in the court have litigants scratching their head in a collective “WHAT?”.
The court of appeal issued an opinion. The opinion was modified based upon a denied petition for rehearing. Notably the opinion did not direct the the trial court to do anything, nor did it reverse the orders in the trial court. Normally, the court of appeal will direct the trial court to set a hearing for either a new trial or address circumstances that have been reversed i.e. DIRECTING the trial court to modify an order. In this case there was just an utterly flawed and prejudiced “opinion” which did not direct the trial court to do anything and which failed to adhere to any family law and appeal legal standard.
Yet the Appellate Division of the Riverside Superior Court set a non noticed exparte hearing to REVIEW the remittitur. There was no notice, there were no moving documents, and the parties were not even notified of this particular hearing. IT was just SET for hearing.
The court even created special departments for this particular privilege. At first Department 2 KR was created which was then switched to Department 2 JR.
The sole purpose of the non noticed exparte hearing of a review of the remittitur was to recite the opinion into a minute order on the COURT’S OWN MOTION to “modify” the modified opinion of the court of appeal. The hearing which had no legal basis in any capacity was another denigration exercise by Judge Dale Wells against the litigant involved. The minute order also stated that there was no appearance by either party. There was no appearance as the Court set a non noticed exparte hearing without notice to any party so that the parties court not appear. There was no exparte notification, that complied with the mandatory rules of court pursuant to CA rules of court 3.1204, 3.1201, 5.165, 5.151.
Litigants literally cannot even invent the lunacy of the current actions of this court which have no legal relevance in any capacity. We just cannot make this stuff up.
