What others have said about Hon. Teresa A. Beaudet

Comment #: CA27340
I have been before Judge Beaudet on several civil matters and I have been very satisfied with how she has handled all my matters. Judge Beaudet reads all papers and provides written tentative rulings that are well reasoned and supported by law. In my opinion, she is one of the better judges in downtown.

Judge Beaudet is super competent and a great judge. Weakness is she indulges a lot of crap from lawyers. She is due process overload to the detriment of her own authority.

She is a jerk to both lawyers. She is unpleasant and a disgrace to the Bench. I have practiced 20 years and never seen worse. I have reviewed 4 judges on this site, and she is the worst. When we settled on the day of trial she made an attempt to force us to disclose the terms of settlement. As a lawyer should know, it is none of her business. She then demanded plaintiff to be present to state on the record that she accepted the settlement. Also not required since plaintiff's counsel was there to speak for plaintiff. Beaudet said that was not acceptable. She makes everything a nightmare


Comment #: CA13859
I have not seen another judge display a belligerence and lack of partiality. A (1) would be too generous.

She is extremely bias. She fails to apply the same rules to represented parties as self-represented litigants. She holds pro pers to a higher standard. I have witnessed a pro per kicking an attorney's *** and she totally intervened by instructing the attorney on how to proceed by moving ex parte. She's a disgrace.

Simply a bad judge. Maybe she was okay in family law but not at all qualified to be a judge in a civil court.

Comment #: CA9685
Judge Beaudet suffers from black robitis. She has rules that are entirely her own, that differ from regular practice. For example, only in her courtroom is ex parte notice by email or fax insufficient. She requires telephone or in person notice, notwithstanding the Rutter Guide's advice to the contrary. She also refuses to come out onto the bench for ex parte applications, even when a status conference was previously scheduled. Absolutely rigid on scheduling; will not move pre-trial dates, even when all parties consent. She makes clear that she does not view herself as a public servant to help move cases along; rather, the parties must work around her rigid rules and schedule.

Given the choice of Judge Beaudet or a dart board, always take the dart board.
