After sitting in Murguia's courtroom 3 different times, I have found him to be a very wishy washy judge. There were 2 different sexual predator type cases before him that were leading up to sentencing and the one case the person had cooperated with the court to the very letter of the definition of guidelines put in place for him, and Murguia revoked bond and had him put into custody. When less than an hour before, another sexual predator had violated all limitations and wasn't holding up his end of the deal for being out on bond, was granted to be left out on bond.

After District Judge Carlos Murgia for the Federal District of Kansas granted me leave to proceed in forma pauperis as a pro se litigant in civil rights cases against defendants and granted me leave to proceed in forma pauperis in all my appeals, ...
Judge Murgia entered an Order today, July 1, 2009, after I had filed my Notice of Appeal, granting defendant's attorney, attorney's fees on the grounds that the lawsuit was unreasonable and without foundation.

This is like a person purchasing life insurance for a child after learning that they are dead!

I know justice is suppose to be blind, but I don't think that means legally blind!

Even though he is a minority judge from a democratic county (Wyandotte) he favors the government in his actions and rulings.
He seems to be another clarence Thomas in
the making which is sad. I hope his people kick him out of the race, the hispanic race that is.
