Appeals court reinstates discrimination case against Ace Parking

Superior court wrongly dismissed racial, age discrimination complaints

Richard Hodges, an African American aged 63, claimed in a Superior Court suit that he was wrongfully terminated by Ace Parking in 2009, ostensibly because of a business slowdown, but actually as a result of racial and age discrimination, harassment, and retaliation by the company and two of its employees who supervised him. Superior Court dismissed Hodges's complaint, which had he filed on behalf of himself. On May 20, the Fourth District Court of Appeals reinstated his claim of racial and age discrimination, but agreed with the trial court on the other claims. The case has been remanded for further proceedings.


Hodges has a tough road ahead of him. San Diego judges are a den of thieves. If you shake hands with a San Diego Judge, count your fingers afterward. Hodge's chances of receiving a fair trial are nil.

Burwell: Hodges has already gone down a tough road. Agreed: San Diego judges leave much to be desired. Best, Don Bauder

Love the story. We are soon profiling a rouge judge in San Diego. Richard Hodges we would love to help you in any way we can. Don... keep up the good work

No one representing themselves will get a fair shake in any state court.
