What others have said about Hon. Brook Hedge



Comment #: DC201
Wonderful judge, keeps apprised of the cases before her, her retirement is a loss to the bench.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

The words "above average" don't appear in the Judicial Code of Conduct, and the purveyors of those terms offer no gauge of their meaning. A person who sits on the bench had better be "above average" by any meaning of the term, but that person must know the law and express herself rationally and courteously so that language as a means of communication might function, whereas curtness or irracibility prevents it from functioning beyond the level of a grunt, or a laugh prevents it from functioning beyond a junior high school level of thought. This judge has gone beyond the curt, irrascible, and taunting-meant-as-argumentative remark and not only in my experience. This judge is retiring, and she does seem in need of doing so.

I disagree as well. Definitely above average.


Comment #: DC174
I disagree - Judge Hedge is certainly above average.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: DC133
Irascible and ill-tempered rude and argumentative. Interrupts and gets invloved without knowling the facts or hearing the case or the evidence.
