Does Fair Have Anything to do With It?

Michael G. Loeffler

Michael Loeffler has practiced family law since 1975. He was a Mental Health Hearing Officer for fifteen years. He was the head

of the Area VI Developmental Disabilities Board for ten years. He graduated with highest honors from the University of California, Davis, where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and from the University of The Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where he attained membership in The Traynor Society. He is also a second degree black belt in aikido and a former marathon runner.

Despite family law courts being courts of equity, the California Family Code is not based on fairness. Clint Eastwood once said, "Fair’s got nothing to do with it."1 Perhaps that is as it should be.
