Litigant

Rating:1.0
Comments:
Judge Healy gives children to abusers. He hates women and minorities. He built his career on violating the law to get batterers and molesters off on charges. Defense attorneys and attorneys who represent abusers love Judge Healy. Anyone who feels that children have a right to be safe is horrified by this judge.

Judge Healy is efficient with his and the court's time, and expects all parties to be prepared by the time they enter the courtroom. He is very decisive. He's also a "quick study," grasping the points made by each party, cutting through the extraneous matter, and getting to the salient matters in a case. Some may find him quick-tempered because he insists that the parties be well-prepared and articulate; I find this to be a favorable trait. I was a defendant in a clearly frivolous action. The plaintiff was ill-prepared, and Judge Healy quickly came to that conclusion, but he gave the plaintiff additional time outside the courtroom to get her case together. In the interim, he heard another case. Afterwards, the plaintiff wasn't much better prepared. The judge was patient with the plaintiff, although she stumbled badly. He then provided me with the time that I needed to state my defense. When he appropriately criticized the plaintiff and her boyfriend for something, they shouted obscenities at him, and he didn't hesitate to have the bailiff remove the plaintiff's boyfriend from the building. I greatly appreciate Judge Healy's fairness, efficiency and decisiveness. I think he's an excellent jurist.

Judge Healy is fair and, in family court, is very direct that parents are supposed to keep themselves and their children out of conflict. The folks who are giving bad ratings here are probably parents who were out of control behavior-wise.

This judge is a nightmare. When several colleagues (lawyers, court staff and even other judges) all say he is "off the reservation," "out of his mind," "an embarrassment" -- then someone needs to listen, and it won't be this arrogant judge. He takes his rage out on litigants and has no ability to thoughtfully remain unbiased until all the facts are brought in. He prides himself on "hammering" anyone he feels has done something wrong, and he makes that decision long before he gets the facts. It is shameful to have him as a judge. Most lawyers are appalled -- even the ones who liked him before he took the bench.
