I witnessed the extreme meaning to the word "injustice". This judge believes he is God. He entered the courtroom with his decision in hand. No evidence was going to take it away from him. It was a joke. The true victim was left to be victimized again - by the court. Shame on him!

my case was decided before I said a word. All evidence was ignored. The Plaintiffs were allowed to testify throughout the proceeding. I was continuously reprimanded while the other party was given free reign. Because the Plaintiffs were lying, I thought truth would prevail. But not in this court. The truth was completely beside the point. This judge pre-decides the case and operates in complete bias. He is the antithesis of justice. I vote to hang this judge.

This judge is completely incompetent. He does not examine evidence, and gives ambiguous decisions. He could not care less about justice, and should be relieved from his position on the bench.

All that I can say about Judge Handley is that he is very fair and that he only gets ticked off if you're representing yourself and you don't know what you're doing. It is not the judge's job to answer your questions about legal processes -- that's a lawyer's job. In my line of work, I have represented landlords as an attorney, and I have often represented myself as a landlord. Judge Handley has been less than kind with me when I'm not on my game, but he was right to be so. In court he's thrown out a landlord for not being prepared by forgetting something as simple as a process server's affidavit, just as he can be short with a tenant about Arizona's strict rent laws. He is fair, and if you don't like him you probably didn't know what you were doing in the first place.

He needs to be reported to the judicial disabilities commission. Decisions are clearly erroneous. Easily reversible on appeal. Why does Arizona have such easy judicial appointment laws to keep such an incompetent judge on the bench.

This JP is just downright impatient he is rude, he has no time for people representing themselves. He is very intimidating, he won't answer questions, he comes across as if you are waisting his precious time so just shut your mouth and let him rule his kingdom. He makes me sick and should not be in the position he is in, he is clueless as to the laws and puts all his trust in counsel vs pro se. He doesn't deserve to be in for another term. He needs to be canned from his throne

Handley's decisions swing toward short skirts, low cut blouses and women who can cry a good cry with Oscar performances as a victim. What a worthless judge. My daughter in law put a gun to her head and was arrested by police after her husband found out she was screwing around while he was overseas. My son got an order of protection after she threatened him with the gun, she then got an order of protection on me for telling her to F*** off and Handley kept the order in force and I was escorted out by deputies. Handley did his best to appear as my daughter in laws "savior". She's a tramp and Handley is a crooked judge.

I was being hounded by debt collector's, action taken by collector's,tried to work with them to no avail.. Never got a day in court before judgement made against me. collector's paid pennies on the dollar for debt, & my buddy gary gave collector's full original debt with 24% interest($ 6,000.00).Due to economy & job loss in past 2 yr's., i lost my home, vehicle & all saved retirement trying to save home. Was just getting on my feet when this occured. Thank's, Gary. Kid's had no x-mas & I live in a hovel of a 1 bdrm. apt. where gunfire abound's. I know I sound cynical, but this isnt justice in my eyes.
