Judge Scott - gave text a book ruling for a case and did not take into account the extenuating circumstances. He is recommending that a vibrant, smart, great 11 old girl be taken away from her mom and given to her dad. She is very happy with her mom, doing great in school and is well adjusted. His logic is she needs to be with her 18 sister who is going away to college and a 17 yr. old sister. Does the judge honestly believe teenagers want to hang out with their pre-teen sister. The decision to have her live with her father will ruin the future of this child. Judge Scott reverse your decision on the Pugh case before you destroy the future of this 11 yr old!

Judge Nathan Lane disregards COURT APPOINTED psych reports, testimony of CPS and police staff and gives visitation to admitted pedophiles.
Run for your damn life do NOT under any circumstance allow your case to be heard by him. Call for his disbarring and jail time for Scott.

No regard for pro per.
If his honor desires lit, go on the Civil side.
Rude to parties. Threatens parties from the bench at check-in.
Doesn't do all of his homework.
Does not behave like a judge but more like an trial attorney.
Former Sr. Appellate Attorney to 4-3, but not getting the learning curve in Super Court.

He is a very rude person, it seems he does not like women and he gives favoritism to men. He does not listen in court, he makes his decision wrong or right and does not care to fix it, as a result a wife beater that wants to continue the abuse does not pay child support and Mr Scott is OK with that because he let him. Well done sir... explain that to the hungry kids!

Horrible Judge. Has no regard for children and the harm he's putting them in. Should not be allowed to make decisions for young children. Does not care if there are CPS cases, does not care about the best interest of the child. Embarrassment to the system.

He is in Family Law. Very immature. If you represent husband you are better off. Doesn't seem to have a clue but certainly does show bias. No regard for protecting children even when a mandated reporter gets involved.

He is very insecure in himself and how he is being viewed by older attorneys, to the point where he can get defensive and lash out. He makes too many mistakes.
