What others have said about Hon. Faye L. Allen


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL4163
Displays obvious bias in temperament; applies the appropriate law only when consistent with her bias. Wastes court time scolding attorneys who do not meet her biased criteria. Doe not listen to argument of disfavored counsel. Inserts implications of disrespect by disfavored counsel against favored counsel, adding her own commentary to magnify benign statements and arguments.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL3799
Extremely rude. Confuses basic terms like judgment debtor and judgment creditor, doesn't prepare for hearings by reviewing pleadings, wastes everyone's time by refusing to cancel hearings even when the matter is moot. Wastes time by scolding people and interrupting them instead of listening. Does not require parties to cooperate with each other to set hearings or review proposed orders. Ignores written motions and fails to rule on them or set them for hearing.
Cynical and distrustful without any valid evidence for her opinion.

She is a disappointment as a judge. She seems to misunderstand the law often and is very state oriented.
