Judge Adelman is showing his true colors of tyranny in jailing a mom because of missing son. Adelman does not need the law, he has no use for it. He thinks mom is guilty, he puts her in jail. Tell me what I want to hear and I will let you out of jail.

Judge Adelman is the subject of upper management scrutiny within the judiciary. His shadowy past, strange connections and lack of integrity is a cancer within the court. The elders have had enough of his games and the money trail has become too obvious. His bench days are numbered. Maybe he will be put in juvey, but that is another danger to society.

Judge Adelman has engaged in the destruction of my sons life and my life. He needs to be indicted.


Comment #: CT81
Connecticut can do so much better. This man has no business working in our courtrooms. He is corrupt and biased, protecting attorneys and the corrupt insiders that he practiced with for years, now he hides behind a robe. Goes through the motions and pretends he is being judicial, but his record speaks for itself. Not very bright, look at how he protected the attorney in Traystman vs Traystman, punishing the wife. He won't survive to a second term.


Comment #: CT78
This judge should be thrown off of the bench! He will listen during the trial then crucify you at the end. He will give you the impression he is fair, but he is not at all. Dont be fooled by him. He is very bias.

Again, unless you have a lot of money to pay off your GAL, you are doomed.
If he finds out you are of Christian faith, he will crucify you. He has done this to more than one person.
He ignores CGS SEC 46b-56 in regards to what is in the best interest of the children. He feel he is above the law.
He needs to be removed

Judge Adelman acts like he is listening,and his neutral. Then he slams the party he is biased against. He imposed orders that are illegal. His relationships with the GALs prevents him from being neutral. He is crooked.
He is biased agaist woman. He has a history of being against Christians.
He needs to be removed. God bless any person in his court. Unless you paid off the GAL...you are doomed. Hope you have a lot of money!!!!
