What others have said about Hon. Julie Fox Blackshaw



Comment #: CA10718
The other comments are spot on. She denied my request for a subpoena and told my attorney that discovery is not necessary. Heard she had a bad time with her own divorce with twin boys; and she sees my case as hers. She is biased towards the County appointed minor's counsel and I expect her to be predisposed to rule against me. Was told she doesn't want to listen to history of the family conflict and just rules. Goes OFF RECORD a lot during hearings. What is she afraid of? Why shouldn't the entire proceedings be official and recorded ON THE RECORD?


Comment #: CA10207
Denies parents due process; does things off the record that should be on; does not know her cases; a bully; apparently lacks ability to make individual determinations; thoughtless of litigants; acts sometimes more like a party's attorney than a judge


Comment #: CA9882
We heard from our DCFS caseworker that she is unnecessarily hard on dads and we found this to be true. Even the the court appointed attorneys told us she rules according to her whims and moods. Particularly moody and unprofessional, she never let my son speak while she was ruling that his ex-in laws get to indoctrinate his son into their religious beliefs. Shouldn't she be upholding the separation of church and state? She ignored reports from the child's therapists that he should only stay in one home and ordered that a 3 year old bounce around 3 households all throughout the week . She ignored any plea for stability for the child. She reprimanded my son in front of his little boy because my son was quietly trying to put his little one at ease in the scary court setting. She is the worst; a monster.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Rating:Not Rated
Lazy, appeared never to read the motions put before her. She seemed terrified of the idea of the case going to trial. She signed off on an incomplete and flawed final judgement order. Did not hold the other party to completing court ordered testing and/or counseling. Especially odd when the other party posed a risk to the community at large. When the opposing attorney placed protected documents, in open court, in violation of the law. Her response was to do nothing. She is at times moody and unprofessional. Seemed to lack empathy, nor an appreciation for the consequences of handling her cases in a callous manner!
