Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL3202
Rating:3.1
Comments:
Judge Carlin is very biased, and blatantly does not follow the law if he does not feel like he wants to. He makes up his own rules, and does not allow parties to testify or argue their case. He just jumps in and controls the hearing himself, and allows his hearings to turn into chaotic "Judge Judy" hearings where anyone can speak at any time. He lies and says he will not use a prior report in a case to dismiss witnesses who will testify that the report is wrong and full of errors. Then, he uses the prior report as a reason to deny a party he does not like. It seems to me that he has attorneys who are his friends, and he rules in their favor all the time. I suspect that he is in cahoots with them, or taking bribes, or doing favors for his friends.
