What others have said about Hon. Joy Flowers Conti



Comment #: 17810
I have tried criminal cases in numerous federal districts. This is hands down the worst federal judge I have ever appeared in front of. Her most glaring flaw is a total lack of common sense. Every objection results in a side bar, simply atrocious.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 9983
Judge Flowers-Conti appears to lack rigor with regard to questions of law. She shows prejudice against larger issues, and her sloppy methods leaves her poorly-crafted decisions subject to appeal and remand. She lacks a firm foundation in civil proceedure and tends to retain jurisdiction in issues concerning diversity of the workplace without thoughtful reflection. Her poor acumen and sloppy methods make her a poor choice. Her bias extends to the political arena favoring GOP related entities.
