What others have said about Hon. James T. Blomo



Comment #: AZ1518
While before this judge in Family Court, he refused to comply with the AZRFLP in relations to Post Decree litigation. Specifically, he introduced himself into the matter by molding the hearing making Pre-Decree credit card debt to be a Post Decree family support issue. He even went so far as to attempt to use incarceration for failure to pay such debts. The matter was based on my filing for Bankruptcy and the opposing party attempting to force me to pay 1/2 of the forgiven debt.

He decided the person was guilty and made sure the Jury knew this.


Comment #: AZ1390
It would be difficult to give Blomo any consideration for being impartial, balanced or honorable. He's rash, pays little attention to the law (his background is criminal prosecution and was a judge on the family law circuit but now is on the civil circuit). He makes fast decisions, does not read briefs before the court and really admires himself in that black robe. he is the epitome of a judge that regards oneself as exalted. Ultimately, he will do very little in the way of instilling confidence in the court system, already has fairly poor reputation among litigants that have been before him and has one of the lowest peer review rating around because of his temperament. There's a facebook movement attempting to educate voters on his performance in hopes that he will not be re-elected. Nonobjectively, I hope the endeavor is successful.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: AZ1295
Decided to let DHS make a ruling instead of doing his job. Order was in place, but did not hold defendants in contempt when presented with evidence. Accepted an expedited ruling, its been over 4 months with no ruling. Wasted Thousands of plaintiffs money! And still no ruling.


Comment #: AZ595
It is obvious to me that this judge clearly does not read the petitions and the evidence submitted. I am very glad that he is being transferred out of the family court, because he has caused me to spend much additional money clarifying and re-presenting arguments because he completely ignored them. He also made a comment in chambers to my attorney that he didn't really like me and thought that I was pompous. How he came to that conclusion is beyond me. I won my case, but due to his ineffectual ability to do his job, he caused me much unneeded anguish.
