What others have said about Hon. Sally Schneider Duncan


Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: AZ1485
She works hard and creates the appearance of trying to do the right thing, but she is readily overwhelmed by complex cases and lets them run away. She cannot keep a handle on simple pretrial matters, doesn't issue scheduling orders that would keep things on track, and just generally picks a side she favors early on and lets that side run the show. Not surprisingly, the side she decides to favor in the early stages of the case get whatever they want from her. She isn't as bright as she thinks she is (or should be), and she tries to make up for it by letting the attorneys run the show.


Comment #: AZ1255
Run, run as far away you can from this incompetent despicable judge, if you are unfortunate to be stuck with her, always demand a Jury trial as that will be your only hope to avoid her inability to follow THE LAW, due process and reason with any level of fairness or impartiality. I have never in my life seen some one whom has next to zero respect for ones rights. This judge needs to be reported and removed.


Comment #: AZ1184
She is blind in the true meaning of the word. Her primary concern is that litigants argue the law correctly and correctly apply the law to the facts at issue. She has no tolerance for disrespectful behavior, or those who are factually challenged. She is an asset to our Court system. Her extra effort is essential to maintaining public confidence in our judiciary.

Worst decision maker I have EVER BEEN IN the presence of. This is NOT a judge, this is a "MORON" with the title of "Judge". Where oh where do they get these morons? They must certainly "PAY TO GET THESE POSITIONS"! They surely aren't elected or voted in by their piers.
