What others have said about Hon. Elaine Fridlund-Horne



Comment #: AZ683
OMG! Unbelievable! How is it possible? A Judge (Elaine Fridlund-Horne) with a history of such incompetence is able to remain on the bench and continue making feeble rulings in the courtroom. Rulings that so adversely effects the lives of innocent children. She should be stripped of her status and sent out to pasture to feed on mother nature instead of on husband,wife and child.
What A racquet they have going on there.


Comment #: AZ616
She should not be a judge. Period. She is overtly racist. She does not even consider the child. She does not consider the evidence or the lack of it. She makes arbitrary rulings or she does not rule at all, continuing issues for months and yes, YEARS. She is a joke and is doing harm to the children who are unfortunate enough to be the recipients of her lack of judgment, her bias and her incompetence. The good old boy days of Flagstaff need to come to an end and it needs to start with removing people in authority such as Fridlund-Horne who are a stain on the community and kill the public's trust in the justice system.

She is one of the most inefficient and incompetent judges in the state. She is the definition of corruption and malfeasance. Beware -- the whole process of family law in Coconino County is corrupt. It involves the corrupt state attorney's office, CPS, local family law attorneys, and the judge. The goal is never the best interest of the children. The goal is to continue the racket of family law and the kickbacks from Title IV to finance their scam called the "legal" system. Always remember that the judge is the leader of the corrupt system. This judge plays the part perfectly.
Malfeasance is the name of the game. The judge and state attorney's office run are the key players in the racket. The sheeple and especially the children of Coconino County will continue to get duped by these corrupt individuals in the name of "justice."

This judge does not do what is in the best interest of the child. She rules without the basis to do so, and without seeing or hearing the evidence. She also says that she will rule on things at a later time and over a year and a half later, she has yet to rule. When I took it back to court she automatically took the other side, without having a hearing. By the way, she was supposed to give us a court date when we went into her courtroom, but three weeks later she ruled and dismissed all my filings. She still has not ruled on the supposed "later ruling" matter. I am not saying she is a terrible judge because she ruled against me. I am saying she is a terrible judge because she does not do what is in the best interest of the child, does not hear or see evidence, does not rule on matters that she says she will rule on, and says she will set a court date and then dismisses all filings. This is wrong, and needs to be addressed by the higher-ups, who should decide if she is really suited to be a judge.


Comment #: AZ485
This judge does not do what is in the best interest of the child. She removes orders with no grounds to do so and fails to rule on orders that were brought up in court. She is very unfair. She placed me, a mother, under blame for my son and I being so close and him not being as close to his father. Judge friudland horne should not be a judge at all especially a family law judge. The best interest of the child is the most important. However this is not on this judges priority list.


Comment #: AZ459
She does not make rulings. She takes the motion request "under advisement" causing the offending party to continue to keep breaking court orders. Her own clerk apoloized for the judge (her) for not following through on a OOP dismissal which later caused a innocent person to be arrested and booked ecause of (her) technical error. I read that she was a former law eforcement
officer. That being the case, she has a higher knowledge of following through on the Registry for OOP and dismissals. For her to not make rulings, the parties legal fees are driven up in an effort to try to get legal attention by the court.


Comment #: AZ428
This Judge is more concerned with her own political gain, then the safety of children. She lifted a order of protection w/o a hearing, forcing a terrified child to have to see a sex-offende/Child abuser, and she refused to allow the child to testify. She also forces me to pay for the other party's gas money for his visitations.

Incompetent judge. Biased opinions not based on legal dictrine.
Well known in the community and previously practiced family and adoption law with many of the attorneys who now appear before her. No doubt socializes with many of the attorneys who appear before her and makes decisions in favor of those who she is friends with outside the courtroom.
This judge is a disgrace to the justice system in Coconino.
Is family court was not bad enough, it is the worst of the worst in Coconino County superior court.
this judge should be serving time in the state pen as opposed to serving on the bench making critical decisions on peoples lives.

This judge is one of the worst judges in the state of Arizona. Biased. Should not be a judge in a town where inbreeding is the standard. She had practiced law in Flagstaff for over 25 years prior to becoming a judge and is friends with the majority of the attorneys who are before. The family court in Coconino County is a joke and she is the chief clown.
