The task of identifying high risk cases and assigning them to specialized judges was an endeavor envisioned by former Presiding Judge Sherrill Ellsworth as reported in a 2010 Press Enterprise article, http://www.pe.com/local-news/riverside-county/riverside/riverside-headlines-index/20100901-riverside-countys-next-top-judge-envisions-changes.ece
Two years later and with a new Presiding Judge the concerned family law public is still waiting for specialized judges to be appointed. Instead the court has allowed the malevolent judicial rape and battery of Judge Dale Wells in family law to continue unchecked and unabated, despite public outrage and protest.
With the recent announcement that Judge Wells is leaving family law that does not solve the dilemma of parents and their children, that almost none of Judge Wells’ rulings have adhered to the relevant family law standard and that his rulings have caused tremendous suffering and placed children in harms way.
Perhaps the Riverside Superior Court would be kind enough to demonstrate that they have the public’s best interest at heart, encouraging the integrity and impartiality of the Riverside Superior Court judiciary and compensate the public for allowing such an individual to preside over family law by appointing a specialized judge to review all his case.
