What others have said about Hon. David K. Udall



Comment #: AZ1596
Judge Udall was biased against me because I was representing myself and the other party was an attorney represented by another attorney. He denied my motions, which were supported by facts, rules, and case law, and granted all their motions, which were poorly justified. He ignored the other party's unethical conduct and allowed them to serve me by publication, which did not even comply with the requirements. The case was dismissed for lack of prosecution and he reinstated it without proper justification. He violated my rights in the process.


Comment #: AZ1428
Didn't give my hearing on a Pro Per Motion for Release within 3 days as the law clearly states is required.

Instead he left me to sit and rot in jail for over a month till my next scheduled hearing date.

This guy is a clown and needs to be voted out!


Comment #: AZ1141
This Judge denied all my motion because the opposite party was a large bank. He fully sided the bank without paying any attention to the proofs of breach of contracts and fraudulent bank practices.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: AZ573
This judge, when our attorney appeared before him in person, did not even address our attorney. He sent his assistant to get the paperwork, had our attorney wait outside, and sent his assistant back out with a response of "denied, denied" with no explanation. Not only was our request for a TRO denied, but he did not even allow for a hearing on the merits. Not even an "I'm too busy now, come back after the holidays." He manifested a total lack of interest in the merits of the case, and an absolutely arrogant disregard for professional courtesy.
