Comment #: CA32827
Judge Wick is a disgrace to the bench. He has none of the qualities I have come to expect in the 46 years I have been a trial lawyer. He actually violates the law. He aids and abets the party who curries his favor or the party he perceives as most influential in the community. It has been almost 8 years since our case was filed and he is yet to set the case for trial. Shame on the P.J. He knows what's going on in Dept 17.

I have worked extensively in the criminal and civil justice system for nearly 35 years. This is probably the worst judge I have ever witnessed. Rude, full of himself, disrespectful and clearly doesn't follow the law. I would recommend anyone going before him file a CCP 170.6 Motion and boot him from your case.

Unfortunate for Sonoma County that this man is on the bench.
He is rude, biased and disrespectful.
He has no regard for the litigants who appear before him.
He is another example of justice destroyed because of an abuse of power.

This judge doesn't follow rules, doesn't listen, or can't hear, so makes up what was said. He is not fit to be a judge, not even on TV. Pretty awful.


Comment #: CA14288
Rating:Not Rated
This judge was rude, curt, and made pejorative remarks against the plaintiff that seemed unprofessional and uncalled for. His bias toward the defendant who had an attorney was blatant. It was very uncomfortable in his courtroom.

Judge Wick has no sympothy for those whom have court appointed fiduciaries, and is complicit in helping court appinted fiduciaries win large billing fees.
