What others have said about Hon. Margaret Henry


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA7614
agree, one of the very worst. spiteful, dumb. no interest in the actual issues. prejudges based on appearances. no sense of who is telling the truth. the pettiest person ever to take the bench.


Comment #: CA7084
Rating:Not Rated
This judge signed an illegal warrant for DCFS to invade my home with armed deputies and traumatize my children. The warrant was only based on uncorroborated false anonymous allegations to the DCFS hot line. Any first year law student or rookie cop would know that this is not legal. I do not know enough about this woman to know if she is corrupt, incompetent, or just does not care about civil liberties. Either way, she is a detriment to children and should not be on any bench much less the Children's Dependency Court bench.

This woman is mean-spirited and has no ear for the truth. She makes many ugly and biased comments, off the record, in the midst of trial. She is abusive and petty and should not be on the bench.

horrible judicial temperament. makes negative personal comments, while failing to respond to legal arguments. misjudges witnesses--no feel for what and who represents the truth of the situation. worst judge I ever faced.
