This Judge is extremely unfair. He couldn't decide my case the day of court. He mailed me the decision and court order. Totally way off. He denied my request for explination by saying "improper request for court order"...I filled out the rquest properly. He failed to explain my order because he was wrong!!!

Judge Petersen is a very even handed and fair in his decisions. He works well with both attorneys and pro pers. He runs his courtroom by the book but still makes sure everyone is given every opportunity to present their case. I would rate him as one of the best judges I have had the pleasure of appearing before in my 32 years of practice.

In Traffic court, hearing trial for infractions the court overseen by Peterson was without jurisdiction and ruled against defendant anyway. Reason was completely absent. It was He wanted to go lunch.
