Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: AZ1636
She is in complete control of her courtroom. It runs with precision. Be prepared with your oral arguments. She’s read everything & will grill you, Definitely not a judicial activist.


Comment #: AZ1635
She is a very smart & compassionate. I felt she really listened to what. I had to say.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: AZ1583
A Janet Napolitano appointee, she is very agendist. She cares about her political agenda issues more than the law. She once had counsel in chambers as the respondent had admitted in pleadings to being an illegal immigrant, having three pieces of real property in AZ, AHCCCS benefits, fake social, etc. Mroz said that she did not want to end up on the 5:00 news and asked if counsel for respondent would like to withdraw the pleading. Another time, on a criminal matter, she just completely failed to see a very straight-forward issue in a motion to suppress evidence, where the police admitted that they did not have probable cause to enter a young mother's home. Police, without probable cause admitting that there was no reason to enter the house, entered the home, kicked in a door inside the house, rounded up the children and interrogated them. Young mother had to plead to a class 6 undesignated felony, but the police were admittedly wrong. Judge should "get it" but she sided with law enforcement. Classic fruit of the poisonous tree, and there was no case against mother. Forced mom to enter plea agreement unnecessarily. Don't trust Mroz' reasoning ability.

Good decision to release Debra Milke on bail.

I like the look of her background. She has a good understanding of child abuse, which is very relevant to this case.


Comment #: AZ123
She is a very fair judge. She is always prepared and often knows more about the case than the people who appear in front of her. Judge Mroz also knows the law and applies the facts to the law, instead of making up her own sense of what the law should be.


Comment #: AZ76
Doesn't actually read through all documents as a judge always should when making decisions. Seems very one-sided.
