Piss poor, violator of civil liberties. Gives Stanford a bad name from prior grads. This woman has a bad soul and spirit. She’s been hurt bad. Sexist and Racist! She makes Trump look like an angel. If you look in the dictionary for Bitch...there’s her photo and life. She should be removed from the bench.

As a trauma therapist treating victims of domestic violence, I am aware of Judge Adams' apparent bias and lack of understanding/compassion for women and children who have experienced and ARE experiencing life with a controlling abuser.

Sad to see this man get railroaded by judge Judy..aka verna adams. , this guy had abs has no chance in this courtroom. This gentleman has lost every motion or requests he’s brought up. This judge has it out for him. Not sure because of his race , female preference to to his ex, which is obvious to me and other employees. This gentleman has always been respectful to verbs but she’s down right nasty to him, interrupts him every chance she gets, rude and nasty demeanor to this guy. Hope there’s someway to help him with verna Adams. She’s horrible judge. I’ve witness many of this gentleman cases and this judge should be removed or recuse herself immediately! Damn shame!

She's friends with my attorney and has been for several years. He is always permitted to speak with her privately regarding any current case. My ex-wife didn’t have a prayer

This judge is biased to mothers. Interrupting every statement you make. Has her mind made up before hearing your case. In cohoots with some of Marin elderly attorneys. She’s a good old girl. Part of Marin FLEAS crew. Please don’t be a black male, you don’t have a chance! May as well speak up, you’re going to loose anyway. She’s a divorcee and most of the family court workers, all female, guys you’re doomed. Change your venue ASAP!
