Hon. Renee M. Bumb (D.N.J.)
Judge Bumb Dismissed Case 24-cv-7266-RMB-MJS sua sponte against the District Court for discrimination against pro se litigants. We then found out that Bumb is married to a NJ Superior Court judge in Vicinage 15 where the lawsuits against other Vic 15 judges were filed. Also Bumb speaks up for NJ Judges at swearing in ceremonies. Complete appearance of bias.

This judge takes forever to issue decisions. By way of example, he took almost three years to issue a decision on a summary judgment motion, and in the interim, would not suspend discovery. Each party spent a LOT of money in the discovery process...and then he granted Summary Judgment. Simply incredible. Even simple procedural motions (e.g., default) take forever. I have not addressed the quality of his decisions, because it almost doesn't matter in light of the incredible delays. (The other judges in the same district do not demonstrate this time lag.) If you are a defendant, this is your judge!

Terrible temperament for a judge. Extremely heavy handed and abuses power to try to force one side into agreements/settlements based on the side she likes. It's one thing to voice an opinion. It's another thing to threaten litigants based on her power as a judge in order to force a result. [Redacted by Ed.]

Hon. Kent A. Jordan (C.C.A)
I had an appeal before a panel lead by Judge Jordan after the district court in my case wrote an opinion that overtly ignored binding precedent in order to make a decision in favor of a corporate party retraining several attorneys from a big law firm. Rather than simply reverse what was an obviously wrong decision, Judge Jordan's panel took it upon itself to misrepresent the lower court's opinion, saying it was about an issue that was never argued at any point in the case, and then affirmed in favor of the corporate party. It seems like the Third Circuit is an amazing forum if you are a corporate party who is bankrolling multiple attorneys salaries, but for everyone else it is a circus of mental gymnastics. These judges are not fooling anyone except themselves.

I thought I reviewed this woman already— Let’s try it again. [redacted by Ed.] 1:23-CV-00337-RP-SH. She is an intelligent woman yet ruled that a court clerk does not violate civil rights when they refused to schedule hearings and a court reporter that witheld hearings isn’t a civil rights violation. She’s not a good person. She’s not a trustworthy judge.

Hon. Elizabeth T. Hey (E.D.Pa.)
I have interned with Judge Hey who is extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and welcoming. She is always willing to educate and teach aspiring lawyers about the complexities of law and the inner workings as a magistrate judge. One of my favorite moments with Judge Hey has been witnessing her preside over the STRIDES courts. You can really see her passion on mental health awareness among vulnerable populations and her desire to genuinely help people regardless of their conviction. She makes everyone around her feel comfortable and does her best to make the criminal justice system digestible to those who may not be familiar with the law.

Hopelessly out of touch with anyone but himself. Will babble on for 5 minutes on the record if someone coughs, sneezes or clears their throat in his courtroom. He chastised a fairly young hardworking female attorney for "looking unwell" and coughing in his courtroom. A nut case.
