And Hon. Shawna Schwarz, formerly with LACY (Legal Advocates for Children and Youth) and other youth advocacy groups, and a regular volunteer for many years at the El Camino YMCA, currently sits on Santa Clara County Superior Court.

He does not deserve any accolades. He is biased and corrupt and his ruling in my case has made my life hell.
