Judge Mark Cope; Former Presiding Judge, Attorneys refuse to appear. $ 2500 in sanctions

The “honorable” Judge Mark Cope is using an outrageous coercive control technique to get litigants and attorneys to comply with OSCs set by Judge Cope, who obviously has no other issues to address in court hearings.

The probate calendar is filled with Order to Show causes not requested by any party but by Judge Cope who is litigating on behalf of the parties.

The latest insanity reflects a $ 2500 sanctions award based on one OSC filed by Judge Cope. Mandatory sanctions are set at $ 1500 by statute. CCP section 177.5

The court cannot exceed the statutory requirements of $ 1500 at hearing, after hearing, after hearing, after hearing without a new OSC for sanctions.

Judge Cope is abusing his position as probate Judge. Attorneys are refusing to appear.
