Judge Myers did not listen to the facts in our case and ruled contrary to the best interests of our child. His decision did not follow the AZ State Parenting Time Guidelines as he ordered the most extreme parenting plan, which was not recommended for high conflict cases, such as ours. The other side also had failed to comply with the rules of court and had not taken all required classes despite being the petitioner.

While Judge Myers was polite and behaved appropriately, his decision will have long-term impact on a child by failing to adequately provide for his developmental needs during hte early stages of life.

He did not read the exhibits or the documents for a review hearing, and the lady who introduced him stated this. I feel that if he would've read the documents, my case would have proceeded differently. I am, overall, unhappy with Judge Myers's performance, due to his failure to familiarize himself with my case. Another girl that I spoke to in a Co-Parenting class stated the exact same thing, and her ex got more time with her kid, who was not a part of his life for the first two years.

This Judge does not read the caselaw, and is not well prepared. I foresee many appeals and remands in his future.

Did not understand the issues presented. Ruled without argument in a complex case. Appeared to have done nothing to educate himself regarding new case law; I'm not even sure that he read the cases cited.

For a newer judge, Judge Myers is polite to all counsel, punctual and attentive to the requests of the parties, and very organized. He is an asset to the court.
