Most Discourtesous Litigant Ever

On May 26, 2016, I filed a Verified Statement of Disqualification in the court clerks office against Judge Lisa Hart Cole, Supervising Judge of the LA Superior Court, West District, Santa Monica, California, Department O.  Pursuant to Civil Code of Procedure, I attempted to serve the judge directly, but her courtroom was closed on that […]

Complaints to the Commission of Judicial Performance

In November 2015, I filed my first complaint against the judge in my case with the California Commission of Judicial Performance, and they declined to investigate. On July 22, 2016, I filed my second one, and I haven’t heard back yet, but I did decided that I was not a fan of the “secrete” evaluation […]

She refuses to follow the law

Once again, Judge Cole orderd my Statement of Disqualification stricken as opposed to allowing another judge to make the determination on her qualification as is required by California Code of Civil Procedure 170.3.  The Code in question is pretty clear, it states” 170.3(c) (5) A judge who refuses to recuse himself or herself shall not pass […]

I wonder what the purpose is….

I received a “Notice of Violation of Court Rules” which CitiMortgage filed in Court with a hearing date the same as my Motion for New Trial.  This was after the letter they sent me threatening that if I didn’t tell the Court about my audio recording of our September 11, 2015 hearings at our May […]

CitiMortgage Makes me Feel Super Important

Especially when I recently learned that CitiMortgage had manipulated google search results for my name.  It was subtle, but obvious to me (because I know the search results for my name, and I know how they operate). They still don’t get it.  They probably never will.  I’m not trying to gain notoriety, I don’t want […]

It all started with an Unlawful Detainer

It seems like so long ago that this case begin with an unlawful detainer action following a foreclosure.  An attorney told me once he had never heard of anyone staying in a home so long following foreclosure.  At one point, the attorney for Citi didn’t show up for an Unlawful Detainer hearing, and the judge […]

Never know what you might “discover”

Discovery was quite a nightmare for me in my case.  I wouldn’t say the Citi attorneys are in over their head, actually based on having talked to other attorneys they are pretty good, but they grossly miscalculated how this case is going to go.  I’m not ordinary.  I don’t mean that in a superior kind of […]

Marina J Boyd vs Citimortgage MSJ Hearing

I appreciate those of you who have reached out to discuss the your pro se experiences, trials, tribulations, and now and again victories.  After my recent “mistake” of hiring an attorney to prepare my Opposition to Defendants Motion for Summary Judgment and realizing he kind of slept walked through it and left me short on time […]

Jameson vs Desta – CA Supreme Court to Review

Marina Boyd Sues Citimortgage Pro Se

Jameson vs Desta is possibly the most important civil case the California Supreme Court will hear this year, especially for Pro Se litigants who are more likely to struggle with the institutional cost inherent in civil litigation, and are more likely to request and be granted fee waivers. Reading the opinion denying Barry Jameson’s appeals will […]

This Crusade Ain’t New

Marina Boyd Sues Citimortgage Pro Se

I kinda don’t think Citimortgage gets it.  Maybe nobody gets it, so let me try and explain.  This case is not all about the value (or according to Citimortgage “devalue”) of the personal property that they stole from me.  What it is about is who the hell do they think they are to take anybody’s stuff.
