First things first, family law issues can be resolved by stipulation as they aren’t required to be heard by a judge or litigated. If the parties can agree, they can resolve issues by stipulation, with or without an attorney. This goes for all family law issues from a dissolution of marriage, to custody and even child support. Therefore, most issues that re heard by a judge are by nature high conflict.
Secondly, if you are a litigant of financial means, you typically retain an attorney at the outset. Any attorney in Solano County, with any level of experience and realism, will immediately file to disqualify Judge Cynda Unger. The best bet is to avoid her courtroom at all. So now you have a collection of litigants in high conflict cases without the means to retain counsel.
Most litigants don’t learn about a judge until things have gone wrong. It’s primarily after being blindsided by Unger’s (or Carringer’s) biased rulings, courtroom outbursts, refusal to hear/read/review evidence, and refusal to consider circumstances of violence and/or sexual assault, that they begin to unravel the mystery of their judicial mistreatment. It is then they go online and Google Judge Unger (or Carringer) and begin to unravel the corruption.
Many female litigants will attempt to retain counsel only to find that MANY attorneys in Solano, Yolo and Contra Costa counties will refuse to represent a female client in Unger’s courtroom as, generally speaking, they believe “there’s nothing they can do.”
So now, even if the economically disadvantaged litigant can scrape together the money to retain counsel, there aren’t many attorneys that will represent them SOLELY ON THE BASIS OF THIER GENDER AND HOW THEIR GENDER IS MISTREATED BY THE JUDGES.
Many male litigants get wise to the antics of Unger and Carringer and realize they can now take advantage of the bias these judges exert and use to to their advantage. They often commit oral and written perjury, because the judge will accept their testimony prima facie, but will disregard testimony from a female litigant. They often use this to get unfair and unreasonable court orders, allowing them to further financially cripple female litigants with child support burdens. They often file requests for orders, in bad faith, to “rack up” the female litigant’s legal expenses.
The average household income in Solano County ranges from just over $30,000 to over $80,000. These Family Law judges make over $180,000 per year. What you have here is the top income earners taking advantage of the lower income earners, backed by the legitimacy of the bench.
