What others have said about Hon. Randall C. Arp


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CO249
Judge Arp is brilliant. His rulings are outside of the box, but always, dead on fair.


Comment #: CO210
Judge Arp does not care about what is best for children. He refused to hear testimony about child abuse, documented through Human Services, instead believing that he knew everything about the child abuse. He chose to give 50% custody to the abuser, seeming to think that it is better to split the children between both parents than to look at who was the more fit parent. In his courtroom, the men had more speaking time and he chastised the women. The father merely had to express the intent to parent for Judge Arp to award him 50% custody, despite the documented history of child abuse. Judge Arp forced my ex and I into mediation -- which, after the fact, I learned is illegal in this state in cases of child abuse and domestic violence.


Comment #: CO201
This judge is very gender biased against women. he has a poor understanding of domestic violence and child abuse.
