The judge CANNOT be fined. Likewise, there are guidelines that hold that appellate rulings are to be decided within six months. Accordingly, if you do not hear by December 19, 2013, you can file a complaint with the Judicial Bar of California. Note, there is no form but you can address a letter to the Bar who will then investigate your claim. the Bar is located in Sacramento.
Please rate my answer ok or better so that I can paid for helping you. I wish you well.
