What others have said about Hon. John D. Boland



Comment #: CT362
I speak from massive litigation experience in his courtroom. This judge misapprehends the law, engages in nepotism, and upon the results of my investigation has a long standing bias against self-represented parties in the courtroom. In our case, he gave great deference to an elderly woman with "tenuous" competency. Refused our request for medical evaluations, then after she fiored her attorneys and testified that her attorney told her to lie, (an attorney the judge knew and had private business relationships with AND THEIR WITNESS) he determined to the detriment of our case, that the court lacked Subject matter jurisdiction. Dig a little and you will find his reputation is one where he holds grudges against attorneys too. He is a former town attorney. Any litigant bringing suit against a town is unlikely to prevail under his purview.

Balanced, fair and makes absolutely sure all the facts in and both sides have the opportunity to present their case.
