OPINION PIECE BY WESLEY NUNN
My name is Wesley Nunn and I’ve had the misfortune of having Judge Chris A. Doehle prevail over some cases I’ve had in the local court. Under Judge Doehle’s rule, I was forced to go to the Court of Appeals in San Francisco to overturn one of Doehle’s decisions. It was simple law and Doehle refused to correct it when I brought it to her attention. In the end, the Court of Appeal agreed with me and reversed Doehle with orders for her to reconsider her decision. Doehle’s bad ruling wasted months of my time as well as plenty of taxpayer dollars. That was five months ago and I’m still waiting for her to abide by the higher court’s order.
That’s not all. Last year I brought proof to Judge Doehle that the attorney for the opposing party resorted to making false statements to the court. Judge Doehle not only protected the attorney and the false statements as freedom of speech, but she also fined me over $2,500 for bringing the issue to the attention of the court. Judge Doehle again ignored the plain law that makes it illegal for an attorney to mislead the court (Business & Professions Code Section 6128). Judge Doehle’s act violated my due process rights as protected by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U. S. Constitution by refusing my right to introduce the evidence that would prove the attorney’s statement was false and meritless. Now I’ll have to go back to the Court of Appeal to reverse this blatantly wrong and abusive ruling. In her campaign, I’ve heard her say that she’s made mistakes and learned from them. I don’t believe her. Under California law, any judge has the inherent power to correct their own bad ruling and to date, she’s made no attempt to do right.
I’m not an attorney myself and I’ve had the lowest of tricks played on me, the very lowest of them done by Judge Doehle. I can’t help but think this comes from retaliation for joining Donna Westfall in her fight against local corruption. There’s plenty more abuse by Judge Doehle and I’ll be writing again within the week. Please write in your questions or comments and I’ll try to respond.
Please vote against Judge Doehle so I can get the fair and impartial court decisions that the law entitles me to.
