Rating:Not Rated
this is one judge where its clear that if you have the money you have him on your side. looking at his last few cases u can clearly see how he ignores the facts and evidence and gives judgement to the one with the money.If you look around online you can find other judges and workers that know and worked with him and can clearly say he is corrupted and should not be on the bench.If someone ran against him for the Fifth Circuit Court he clearly would of lost. I am so glad he is being looked at by people who can actually make this known to all.


Comment #: FL3420
Ignored all testimony in divorce case. Gave ownership of guns to respondent with an active injunction in place for domestic violence. Ignored monthly medical costs for petitioner with a debilitating chronic illness and stated drugs to control the disease were "elected" although they were prescribed as a last ditch effort by a neurologist. Ignored expert testimony by two physicians. Awarded alimony despite no need being presented in court. Divided federally protected VA benefits despite federal law stating it was not alloed. Benefits were for injuries incurred prior to marriage. Penalized petitioner for large tax debt on funds paid as partial settlement to respondent although he ordered such funds to be paid from the specific account he stipulated in his own court order! There is no justice with this man. I hope he can look at himself in the mirror.
