Definitely among best judges ever. Infinite patience, entirely reasonable, exceedingly bright.


Comment #: FL5580
As a non-attorney who's prosecuted numerous actions, most successfully, from County and Circuit, to Federal, as well as having filed an Appellant's Brief in the 4th DCA, I'm not unfamiliar with the diverse dispositions of numerous Judges, particularly to pro se litigants. But I've found Judge Haury to 100% objective and fair in all aspects of each pleading; who's always advised before the hearing from having fully read all matters proffered by both sides, and without the preformed conclusions of a non-bar member litigant that is too often drawn by many judges which occasionally affects their objectivity to the standards they expect and the tolerance they allow for Bar members who fail to fully meet those standards. Judge Haury has displayed only what any of us coming before the Bench can expect, and that is 100% unbiased objective consideration of the pleadings made, the issues raised, and thoughtful, informed deliberation on applying the law to whatever his ruling is. You better have all the answers to whatever questions will be raised, by your adversary, or the Bench, when appearing in Division 13; because this Court doesn't miss asking every relevant question to the issue at hand. And you will look foolish for hesitating; and feel eviscerated for failing. Fortunately, this observation was learned at the expense of my adversaries; and I intend to keep it that way; especially in Division 13. (JM)

This judge is mean-spirited and petty. He is not as smart as he thinks he is and his demeanor is that of an adversary rather than that of a considered jurist. He does not review motions or memoranda before hearings and is often entirely unprepared to address the matter at hand. He also tries to find a reason not to make a decision or drags out a decision over multiple hearings without regard to the time and expense caused to the litigants before him. Just terrible.

Judge Haury actually brought integrity and fairness to the forecloure courtroom in his brief stint in foreclosures. Unfortuantely, I guess the "powers that be" in our corrupt judiciary felt that he asked too many questions of bank's attorneys and held them accountable for their lack of preparation and fraudulent documents they constantly peddled before the court. He didn't tow the agenda laid down by the masively corrupt Florida legislature in Tallahassess to "clear the dockets" of foreclosure cases in Florida, or risk a cut in funding. The rest of the judicial hacks on the foreclosure bench in Broward, Miami and Plam Beach willingly went along with the state's corrupt agenda while thousands of homeowners were swept away in a tsunami of corruption, back door deals, fraud, graft and political payback. Judge Haury was one of the few with the chutzpah to stand agains the agenda and least provide a semblance of a fair process in foreclosures. His rewaard? of course, he had to be moved out. Welcome to Florida, "The Corruption State".
