What others have said about Hon. James Petrucelli



Comment #: CA5602
Rushed through proceedings without really knowing facts of the case. Condescending, biased and should not be a judge. The court system in Fresno is terrible in general, but Petrucelli is the worst of the bunch.

In the past as a deputy Sheriff he liked women alot. So probably not the law or anything, but if one did a study,
I bet women 70% men 30%.


Comment #: CA1325
Petrucelli heard my case in family court. He went off of only what my ex-wife said, and DID NOT follow the law. I looked into him, and he was already in trouble for not following the law. He was in trouble for "JUDICIAL MISCONDUCT." I wish i could do more to spread the word that he is a terrible judge. It made me feel horrible that someone like him determines the fate of so many people, and breaks up families like mine.

Terrible judge, should have lost election. I have known him for many years. Hes the ultimate crook!
