Comment #: DC584
Rating:Not Rated
That beast bought back a judgement against me that had expired in landlord and court. The attorney representing DCHA
presented a case dismissed by a previous judge ,due to faulty accounting in recertification process


Comment #: DC535
Judge Rankin was obviously very skewed in her opinion and whose side she was on. Something occurred which may have been offensive but was unintentional and Judge Rankin was unreasonable in her opinions. She ruled for a restraining order when there was little to no actual threat.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: DC511

Comment #: DC379
This judge was straight forward and didn't play games. In my case and those I observed while waiting she was tough and fair and looking out for the best interest of the child.
