Rating:Not Rated
Very Unjust. Does not take the time or
even care about looking at the facts.
Seem very bored with his job.

He is a complete loser who takes sides with lies, and the father of lies. He trumped up a charge against me after a year and a half, which was dropped by State's Attorney David Dodd. He asked -- and this is no joke -- why he should not give me 12 months in jail. Well, it will be a joke when RICO comes to town -- a federal suit is waiting to be served. He is one among many who have the "black robe disease." The abuse of power is rampant among the American judiciary.

Judge Kanarek appeared disinterested and even bored or annoyed at certain points during the trial. He seemed to be angry that the case was contested, and his demeanor at the end of trial was that of a factory worker when the whistle blows. I almost wanted to apologize to him during the trial, but then I realized that my client and I had invested substantial time and effort in preparing a case and in trying the case. He seems to dislike civil litigation and is more concerned with administration.

Great judge. He will always read everything submitted before the hearing and gives thoughtful opinions. He is prepared and expects those in front of him to be prepared as well. Evenhanded and a pleasure.
