Presiding Judge Harold Hopp after disqualifying himself from a family law case has taken to assigning random judges to a family law case, although there are several assignment orders in place referring to a specific department and is insisting that all documents are received and forwarded to the Presiding Judge’s office although there is a disqualification order in place.
A parent filed a request for restraining order with children which is still listed as active. Judge Harold Hopp instructed a judge from another superior court division (Judge Lucky Jackson) to NOT issue the Temporary restraining order in an outrageous malicious action, as Judge Lucky Jackson is not assigned to the family law case in any capacity and there is no departmental assignment order to F 502.
Judge Lucky Jackson refused to issue the TRO under with the mandatory DV 110 and DV 109 forms, (http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/dv110.pdf; http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/dv109.pdf) instead using an optional MC 702 form which has no relevance as the Request for Restraining Order with Children is still listed as active in the relevant court case. The court TO DATE has failed to issue the TRO on the mandatory forms in the mandatory time frame pursuant to CA family code 246 and CA family code 242.
The clerks of the Riverside Superior Court are providing legal advice to litigants based upon the instructions of Presiding Judge Hopp specifying that a litigant should file an EPO with the relevant police department or another Request for Restraining Order when the other one is still pending with the Riverside Superior Court. No person shall practice law in California unless the person is an active member of the State Bar, (CA Business and ProfessionsCode section 6125).
This occurs when a litigant follows up with the Riverside Superior Court as to the status of documents. The clerks are also specifying that a litigant cannot file any documents in the appropriate manner “as this is what YOU want” and instead insist on receiving and forwarding documents to the disqualified Presiding Judge and to the court executive office who cannot issue any legal rulings.
