Sacramento Family Law Court Protest - Judicial Council of California - California Supreme Court - CJP Victoria Henley from Sacramento Family Court News on Vimeo.

Sacramento Family Court reform activists conduct a demonstration in this clip from the documentary Divorce Corp. Among other issues, the demonstration raised awareness of family court corruption and the failure of the Commission on Judicial Performance to remove Judge Peter McBrien from the bench after his second misconduct prosecution by the CJP. Defense character witness testimony on McBrien's behalf by Sacramento Judges Robert Hight and James Mize was cited by the CJP as a mitigating factor which reduced McBrien's punishment and allowed him to remain on the bench.

McGeorge School of Law Professor John Myers blames
family court injustice on too many Judicial Council forms.
In a laughably inaccurate editorial published by the Sacramento Bee, McGeorge School of Law family law professor John E.B. Myers redefined the meaning of the out-of-touch, ivory tower academic. Among other clueless assertions, Myers made the epic LOL, demonstrably false claim that:

“Sacramento’s family court, under the wise leadership of Judge James Mize, serves the community well.”

Family court watchdogs have collected and catalogued overwhelming evidence that Judge Mize provides anything but “wise leadership,” and that the court – which operates essentially as an organized, criminal enterprise – serves only a select, exclusive group of judge pro tem lawyers. The community at large, and especially those financially disadvantaged family court users without an attorney, are subjected to second-class status under an illegal two-track system of justice
