This man is dangerous!!! He allowed a father of a child who simply didnt want the baby fabricate domestic charges for an injunction against his pregnant girlfriend even though the cops actually sided with the woman and didn't arrest her, they felt the evidence supported the woman. Because she was black the judge sided with the man, even throwing the woman out in the street. Basically saying if you get a woman pregnant and don't want it you can just come in his courtroom and make up something and he will stamp it for you and free you of your responsibility! This woman was a business woman, decorated in accolades and the father was a telemarketer living with his mother who had been preying on this wealthy woman for money with his family, him and his family decided to frame this woman for money to try and sue her, and take custody of the child he didn't want for money, first they tried to lock her up and that didn't work, cops laughed at his attempts to frame her, so he filed an injunction instead and Judge Diskey gave it to him. Yet every white person that went before her was given a second chance. This woman was completely railroaded, giving the father a better chance at custody since the woman now has this bogus domestic violence injunction against her. Crazy! This man needs to be removed from the bench and thrown in jail!

Rating:Not Rated
This Judge is very biased. He is very unfair. It is very odd, that this Judge just happens to lose the documents, then the opposing side offers to share their copy, and it just so happens that the copy has a sentence underlined that is the opposing sides argument and that is all this judge saw. Poor child is endangered. Where is the JA? Not making sure he had all his paperwork?

i observed this judge allow a woman who was caught lying several times in the courtroom and this girl had active warrants for her arrest..everyone in the courtroom knew she was lying except,apparently the judge. The dad was clearly the stable one and had prof of her lies but the judge sided with the psycho mother. All I can say is poor kids yikes


Comment #: FL3578
This judge took over 6 months to make a ruling on my simple divorce and we had a pre nup. He allowed opposing counsel to rechedule hearings and pre trials and trial dates multiple times, sometimes the day of. He did incorrect math on his final ruling which cost me thousands of dollars. He is incompetent, arrogant and should be removed immediately!


Comment #: FL2790
Absolutely horrible. He sent my 9 year Grandson back to his father who beat not only once but at least on 2 occasions that I know of. He took the word of a Counselor - James Wasenda whom had only met with this Father 5 times and said he was "OK" for this little boy to be with him full time and my Daughter on every other weekend. The Father should have been on every other weekend with supervision. This Judge weighs to much on people whom he knows as friends. Wish we could have another Judge when my Daughter goes back for the final decision.
