What others have said about Hon. Renée F. Korn



Comment #: CA7835
Pompous, arrogant, confrontational with attorneys and anyone who defers with her or challenges her opinion. Flexible with the law when it's convenient for her opinion.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA6004
Made several wrong statements to the jury. Gave the defendants the wrong information about time to appeal. Failed to control her staff on several occasions. Fails to disclose conflicts when she is trying cases involving competitors to her husband's business. Knowingly suborns perjury to help her former employer. Hates men and views them all as potential rapists so your best bet is to pretend to be a rape victim to gain her sympathy. Also very racist though she tries to hide her former involvement with a racist sorority. Vindictive and tries to intimidate citizens into giving up their rights or endure her wrath.

Comment #: CA5491
Judge Korn is another typical Arnold appointee. Republican, DA's office and not very bright. She openly challenged me in a bail hearing because the bail amount was punitive in nature. She is young, with a washed out face, and has no clue what she is doing. I have practiced for 30 years in this area. Given that Arnold slept with his maid, she probably had to give him at least a hand job to get the position. Terrible.
