What others have said about Hon. Wade M. Rhyne



Comment #: CA48974
I feel he is to accepting of CFS and lacks any motivation to challenge those to be considered "experts". A man who has sworn oaths both in the military and court would think to have a greater passion for justice than most others.

Judge wade rhyne knew that my infant died in the custody of the ambulance and that they caused his death. [Redacted by Ed.]

He lets foster people take over all the confidential juvenile hearings and let's everyone lie about biological parents to steal.kids. [Redacted]

Civil Litigation - Private

I honestly think that Judge Rhyne read and understood a case I was involved in this year. He was patient and fair throughout, I was impressed. Its quite obvious this man is very busy, yet intelligent and very capable while showing respect and courtesy to all.
