What others have said about Hon. Monica Marlow


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA10599
This is definitely one of the worst Judges on the bench. She repeatedly ignored the law, showed blatant favoritism to one side over the other, and routinely abused her power. A one rating is generous.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA8884
In almost 25 years of practice this is one of the worst judges I have ever appeared before in a civil matter. She clearly failed to read the pre-trial briefs or motions and didn't care when this was pointed out to her. Absolutely no clue about the law in our case (statute and case) and when challenged with the law, either ignored it or was adamant she could simply ignore it. Perhaps she was an OK criminal judge,but she is doing an injustice to the civil bench. Our firm will not appear in front of her again.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4510
She took the time to read the filings/briefs and become familiar with cited cases in a complicated matter.
