I have received your letter of complaint about Commissioner Glenda Veasey.

As your letter relates to a family law matter that was handled by a family law judicial officer, I have forwarded it to the Supervising Judge of the Family Law Court, Judge Scott Gordon. His address is 111 North Hill Street, Department 2, Los Angeles,

CA 90012.

Judge Gordon will look into the issues that you raised in your letter and will respond back to you when he has finished his investigation.

I have read and considered your letter of December 30, 202 and the extensive materials that you included with your letter. It must be noted that many of the materials that you included were not related to the issues in Case No. YF004703. The majority of the materials that you included with your correspondence appear to be in support of your claims that the decisions and orders made in the case were not appropriate.

Your first request for orders (RFO) in this matter was heard by the court on July

28, 2011.

On January 26, 2012, the matter was called for hearing. You appeared as a self- represented litigant and the other party was represented by counsel. After a hearing was held, the Court asked you and the other party to have a seat in the courtroom for a few minutes. After several minutes, you and the other party then left the court. The matter was taken off calendar.

In June 2012, you filed an ex parte request for orders. The matter was argued and denied. On October 25, 2012, a hearing was held on your request for order. It was continued for you to provide proof of service and proof of completion of the PACT program. On December 12, 2012, the matter was called for hearing and the court ruled on your request.
