Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Prager is, in a word, "corrupt". He is well aware of California and consciously chooses whether or not to apply California law based on favoritism which defines him as the worst kind of adjudicator. While ignorance of the law is not an excuse for poor performance, it is at least a mitigating factor in reviewing judicial performance. Judge Prager operates at the other extreme, in that, he knows the law but will openly refuse to apply the law in cases that would result in an undesirable outcome. He is corrupt in his motives and discriminatory in his application of the law. Lastly, he is openly sexist, making unwanted and inappropriate comments about the attire of attorneys that regularly appear before him.
This judge decline the right to jury trial against major corporation and after only opening statement force plaintiff to unfortunate settlement. Judge Prager nominate himself as a settlement negotiator (unheard in court proceeding that trial judge negotiate settlement) after prejudging case and making several treats to plaintiff he force settlement favorable to defense.
You judge how corrupted he is.
