What others have said about Hon. Mark T. Gould


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CT397
Judge Gould is a nightmare if you get him. He doesn't care about evidences and he makes decisions based on his randomness. He is a lazy and biased judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CT386
Judge Gould has no ability to deal with a complex situation. His poor background reflected his wrong judgement and rulings. His rulings and judgement are often showed in appeals filed which indicated he is not qualified to be a judge. He barely passed his mid-term review to get reappointed which also indicated his poor service records


Comment #: CT349
I totally agreed with all comments below. You barely saw a judge who can get so many negative comments. I had terrible experiences with him. He is a very lazy and judgmental judge. He ignored facts and evidences. He tends to 100% rely on GAL ( for child custody ). He doesn't have any child and never understood the parenting issues. Overall, he is a bad judge without common senses and basic skills

This judge is a drama phallus. Leave it up to him to make a joke of laws and rules.

Hon. Gould is a lazy and biased judge. He doesn't take notes and He made deals based on his own bias. He ignored the evidences and doesn't allow arguments.


Comment #: CT69
Judge Gould uses his robe, gavel, and bench as a tool to bully people, especially pro se litigants. He does not enforce the law. He simple bullies litigants into silence under the threat of contempt and incarceration. He does not allow argument, and if he does, it doesn't matter as the deal is already mad with opposing attorneys behind closed doors.
