What others have said about Hon. James G. Kenefick, Jr.



Comment #: CT332
This old senile codger tries to pass himself off as a this old, mild mannered, grandfatherly, even-tempered judge, but in reality he is as slippery and dishonest as a snake in the grass.

He routinely and cowardly refuses to issue court decisions until months, if not years later, and will then try and change his original court orders after he presumably receives sexual or money bribes from the parties he screwed over.

It is not unusual for this criminal to literally issue a "brand new ruling" or "clarification order" years later after issuing decisions, going 180 degrees in the opposite direction, presumably because he received either hard cold cash or a series of blowjobs from the children he ruined in his family court in New Haven Superior Court.

Avoid this scumbag at all costs, as well as his cohort, Judge Jane "Brandfon" Emons, whose family has literally been in the "used car business" for 50 years in CT, if that doesn't already tell you about her sick dishonest personality.
