What others have said about Hon. Mary E. Sommer



Comment #: CT331
How do you go about hurting someone's life because you're tired and overwhelmed and overworked. If that's the case Judge Mary Sommer. Step down from the bench. Because every minute you're up there making decisions that make absolutely no sense. That's what you're doing. You're horrible , you aren't fair and you are not just. Some food for thought when you go about your merry life and hurting others.


Comment #: CT330
Judge is in need of a mental health evaluation. She refuses to hear defendants speak, refuses to see evidence, makes assumptions, and makes untrue and biased statements and then retracts. All happened in our case. Plus, she stated info about something she had no knowledge of and then stated on tape she was mistaken after yelling and carrying on. She is hot headed, incompetent and makes you realize why the legal system is a failure. Sommers should be removed asap. Even court personnel told us she is known for erratic, angry and unfair behavior. Pathetic.

Horrible woman, becomes completely biased as the day continues on case after case. Refuses to listen to defendants. Rules in honor of plaintiff, only has their best interests in mind, and completely disregards the mental and emotional health of children. She needs to be removed from the bench.
