Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Brian Hill’s Latest Antics are being Questioned by the Public, well It’s About Time!

Finally the people of Santa Barbara appear to have caught up to me in regards to the serious concerns I have with Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Brian Hill. Just this past week Judge Hill fined lawyer Darryl Genis for questioning a witness whether she, in writing or orally, gave sworn testimony that was not both true and correct. Genis later asked a different question of another witness which the judge deemed was also an attempt to bring up prior acts.” I repeated it, I repeated it, I repeated it,” Hill said of his admonition not to bring up any prior acts of moral turpitude. “To me, this is indefensible.”

Since I am not as smart as Judge Hill I had to look up the meaning of Moral Turpitude;
Moral turpitude is a legal concept in the United States that refers to“conduct that is considered contrary to community standards of justice, honesty or good morals. The classification of a crime or other conduct as constituting moral turpitude has significance in several areas of law. First moral turpitude is considered to have a bearing on the honesty of a witness and may be used for purposes of witness impeachment. THAT IS EXCEPT IN JUDGE BRIAN HILL’SSANTA BARBARA SUPERIOR COURTROOM.
Now like I said I am not as bright as our Superior Court Judge Brian Hill and excuse me for saying this. But it appears that not only is the questioning of ones moral turpitude relevant in a court room; it is also standard practice according to the definition I was able to find on the Internet. Now the first quote I referenced from Judge Hill and the second one that comes up next were both pulled from the Santa Barbara Independent story written by Chris Meagher, I have included a link for your convenience at the end of this posting.
“Hill, for his part, said he didn’t want his courtroom turned into a circus. “I issue orders that I see as appropriate in terms of how I want this courtroom conducted”
As for the circus reference Judge Hill made that horse left the barn along time ago Judge.  You have to remember this is the same Judge who allowed the Santa Barbara District attorneys office to file an ex parte motion in the Peter lance D.U.I. case who by the way was also represented by Darryl Genis. If not for the opposing motion filed by a California D.U.I. lawyers group Judge Hill never would have acknowledges it’s unconstitutionality. The argument opposing the ex parte motion was;” There is no authority for the requested protective order, no authority that any protective order can be issued ex parte, and it accordingly should not be granted, lest a host of constitutional problems would be loosed upon the land.” I have at least another hundred examples I could write about, but I think this and all my other posting get the point across.
In closing is it time for the Santa Barbara District Attorneys Office to create a PUBLIC INTEGRITY DIVISION for elected officials? I feel the citizens of Santa Barbara County have the right to expect that their elected and appointed officials will carry out their duties in a lawful, ethical and professional manner. They also have the right to expect that administrators, supervisors and the immediate subordinates of elected and appointed officials, who play an integral role in achieving the mission of the office holder, will discharge their duties and obligations in the same lawful, ethical and professional manner.
A District Attorneys Public Integrity Division would ensure that public and appointed officials and their subordinates fulfill their legally mandated duties. To this end, the District attorney’s Office should use all resources at its disposal to detect, investigate and prosecute criminal misconduct at all levels of public service. Of course a Public Integrity Division’s ultimate goal is to increase the public’s level of confidence in its elected and appointed officials. Of course this is truly an oxymoron because the first hurdle we would have to over come when forming a Public .Integrity .Division would be creating public trust in the Santa Barbara District Attorneys Office.!

Judge Fines Lawyer for Courtroom Violations

DUI Attorney Darryl Genis Required to Report Sanctions to State Bar
Thursday, June 28, 2012 by CHRIS MEAGHER (CONTACT)
“At the end of the Independent story there is currently 71 comments from the public, I have included just a few.”
“SO, the Deputy DA Justin Green gets a “sharp” talking to by the biased judge about obvious misconduct he, as a prosecutor, is mandated to preclude, but the judge sanctions Daryl Genis for conscientiously cross examining a rogue cop who has been all over the news because it appears she is dirty? Wait, did I read this properly? Did the judge PRECLUDE impeachment of MORAL TURPITUDE of the cop who has a history of lying?”
Ach tung! Okay, I keep repeating myself because this is nonsensical. Judge doesn’t sanctions bad prosecutor for letting lying cop and husband collude. CHECK. Clearly biased judge precludes proper cross examination on matter of moral turpitude of the cop. CHECK. The only person doing his job properly in the courtroom by fully representing his client gets sanctions. CHECK.
Okay, now I get it. Judge, you need to get a job at the DMV. You’d fit right in.
Boy, I’ve heard of bias, but this judge just takes the cake. Clearly, he was annoyed that the last time he tried to sanctions this lawyer, he was reversed. Guess he was just waiting for another time.
The truly lamentable aspect of this is the judge’s clear bias against Mr. Genis. The judge’s actions can only be viewed as a despicable effort to silence zealous advocacy on the part of Mr. Genis and by extension the entire defense bar. As added insult to this obvious injury to the constitution, at the same time the judge ignores far more egregious conduct by the prosecutor.
The only mistake Mr. Genis made, was not to force the judge to recuse himself in light of the fact that his previous sanction attempt was overturned by the court of appeal. The judge’s prior actions certainly give the appearance of impropriety.
The Judge is clearly wrong in his rulings. A prejudice judge does NOT belong on a bench; unless it’s a park bench.
….oh yes, and JUDGE Brian Hill is incompetent……he needs to retire
“JUDGE Brian Hill is incompetent”
He is competent at what he does … which is to tilt cases in favor of the prosecution.
“Hill, for his part, said he didn’t want his courtroom turned into a circus. “I issue orders that I see as appropriate in terms of how I want this courtroom conducted”

S.B.C.C.C. The place where COMMON SENSE never goes out of style!

One Response to Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Brian Hill’s Latest Antics are being Questioned by the Public, well It’s About Time!

    Today Tues. June 30th, 2015..judge Brian Hill committed an atrocity in court when he ruled on a case involving a Felony animal abuser Duanying Chen. Mr.Chen was unremorseful about the torturous acts committed on a 5 month old mini Pincher. Horrendous acts including but not limited to removing skin, cutting off his penis and what Vets thought to b sexual abuse!!
    One veterinarian who has worked in urban situations saving bait dogs..said it was one of the worst cases she had seen in long time. The torture was so horrible that the puppy was euthanized as the most humane way to end his very brief and painful little life! Mr. Chen admittedly said he didn’t see what the big deal was. To make a disgusting story short, judge hill decided to give that felon a slap on the wrist. Basically the minimum punishment, sending No Message that this kind of behavior will Not b tolerated.. (on the contrary) … a Stunned court room vowed to create change… Petition for tougher animal cruelty Laws and Get Judge Hill to Step down from a position he no longer full fills his duty in a professional and efficient manner. Thank you for listening.
    Sincerely, Angelina Vasquez, Lompoc, California 93436….
