What others have said about Hon. Marla Prudek



Comment #: CO305
This judge was totally preferential to the plaintiff attorney--sustaining all of her objections while overruling every defense objection. This judge allowed the plaintiff's lawyer to question her own client for one and a half days with all LEADING questions. Defense objections to leading questions were overruled each time until the defense lawyer GAVE UP hoping for fair treatment. In researching the relationship between the plaintiff's attorney and Judge Prudek, I discovered that said attorney was on Judge Prudek's nominating commission. Judge Prudek should have recused herself from this case as a matter of conflict of interest and/or inability to remain impartial. The judge made a ruling against the defense/me without allowing the me to present any evidence or giving me a fair amount of time to prepare both my testimony AND Final Arguments. Judge Prudek also did not educate herself about the plaintiff's mental illnesses and, instead, allowed herself to be totally manipulated by the plaintiff's attorney away from understanding the importance of those illnesses which included the constant lies of a client with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I lost my home and one-third of my income because of the lies that were told by the plaintiff and believed by Judge Prudek. Had she been at all informed about NPD, she would not have allowed herself to be so obviously manipulated! One cannot expect impartial rulings from Judge Prudek!
