Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA23685
Rating:1.0
Comments:
Siegel was never considered the sharpest tool in the shed - but endorsing Ariadne Symons for judge is perhaps the most bonehead move a sitting judge could make.
He can't see that endorsing her makes it seem like he agrees with her conduct????

I found this judge to be cowardly.

He had ruled in my favor. When opposing side was found to be in contempt, he didn't address it in his courtroom, he passed it over to the crazy judge at a later date. I lost all that the three prior judges had ruled upon in my favor. A coward.. Did not stand up for his own ruling......
