Judge Gregory Alarcon of Los Angeles; arrogant loser 

 

The state of California presented Gregory Wilson Alarcon with a law license in 1982 after he graduated from Loyola University Law School in Los Angeles.

 

In one matter, Judge Alarcon presided over a case involving Bally Total Fitness Inc., the plaintiff and PCAM LLC, the defendant.

 

After Bally lost a jury verdict in the case, it filed a motion for a new trial (judgment notwithstanding the verdict, which California Court Rules required to be heard within a defined statutory deadline of forty-five (45) days.

 

Rather than consider Bally’s motion for a new trial within the statutory deadline, Judge Alarcon decided it was much more important for him to go on vacation.

 

Over the course of several days prior to the statutory deadline lapsing, counsel for Bally repeatedly called Judge Alarcon’s courtroom clerk to inquire about the hearing date for its motion for a new trial to be heard. The last call which was seven (7) days before the deadline for the motion to be heard, the courtroom clerk told Bally’s attorney that Alarcon was going on vacation the next day, and that the motion could not be heard until he returned on the 29th of the month, which was 14 days after the deadline had passed.

 

The reason for the mandatory deadline to hear a motion for a new trial is that the motion itself tolls the time for a party to file a notice of appeal of the trial court judgment. Put simply, until the trial court hears and rules on the motion for a new trial, the date to file an appeal is held in abeyance.

 

Subsequently, Bally’s lawyer filed for relief with the Court of Appeals when it sought a writ to compel Alarcon to hear and rule on the motion for a new trial. On the day after its receipt of Bally’s appeal, the Court granted the writ and ordered that Alarcon immediately hear the matter and render a decision.

 

This is just another prime example of a loser judge who believes that taking a personal vacation is much more important than doing the job the taxpayers pay him $188,000 a year to perform.

 

Lastly, it goes without saying that Judge Alarcon doesn’t much care about being spanked by the Court of Appeals for failing to do his job because he absolutely knows that he cannot be removed from the bench for so acting.

 

As we speak (ca. October 2016), Judge Alarcon continues to sit as a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge in Los Angeles, California.
