Complete idiot, does not know what she is doing, scary she's the Presiding j=Judge

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA41988
Doesn't know the law; doesn't follow the law; makes up her own law. What is she doing there?

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA10479
Known generally in the Family Law Community as one who will ignore established precedent and even express statutory language to forward her own agenda to the detriment of those before her.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA7536
The worst judge I have ever seen. Has terrible judicial temperament and either refuses to follow or does not understand the law.


Comment #: CA6556
The absolute WORST judge I have ever witnessed, and I'm also counting years of watching LA Law, Ally McBeal, and Boston Legal. Completely biased on the prosecutor's side (Didn't she used to be a DA? Or maybe she's married to one? Or both?) Was rude and disrespectful to a very senior, well respected Public Defender while coddling a young, ambitious prosecutor. Was on her computer while PD was making his case. Has no understanding of, or tolerance for, mental illness and its impacts on people's behavior. Completely ignored sentencing recommendations of Probation Officer in sentencing a mentally ill person to four years in prison for minor crime. Should be removed from the bench immediately for incompetence; there is nothing "honorable" about Massullo.

Very little knowledge of civil law and trial practice.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA5790
Biased judge who does not follow the law and will do everything possible to try to destroy people she does not like. She has a complete ignorance of the law and does not even care. Corruption may be involved.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4625
I've been litigating complex civil cases for over 30 years. Judge Massullo is the worst judge that I've ever encountered. She is heavily biased towards the defense, has poor litigation management skills, and is unreasonable and set in her ways.

Totally lacking in judicial temperment. SHe cannot handle people especially in pro per divorce cases. She was a federal prosecutor and knows little civil law. [Redacted by Ed.]
