This is the worst Judge ever she is one sided she is biased and viscous. She has destroyed families lives forever. She does not hear both sides at all. She favorites one side.she is incompetent, biased, she abuses her power.She should not be a Judge, Her actions,and ability to Judge and act like a Judge is a disgrace to the court system. Judge Moreland should be disbarred.She is not professional at she acts like a thug.There is a God up above and one day she has to answer to him.

Wow. I’m shocked that this woman would be allowed to judge from the vans. She takes weeks to read motions, that take 15 minutes.
It almost seems that she’s irritated having litigants in front of her..
Seems that she does not know nearly half of what she should in representing miscellaneous guardianship cases

Beware. This Judge does not appear to understand the probate rules or statutes. She complicates matters by giving inconsistent rulings. Her office is not well managed, she takes months to do what previous judges accomplished in a week. Her temperament is not a model of judicial restraint or a model for other judges.

This Judge should be disbarred! She should’ve never been a judge to begin with. She is completely biased. She sides with one side and doesn’t listen to the other. She is a biased judge. She is the complete opposite of what a judge should be. She has ruined lives. Because she is biased. She has ruined a family because she doesn’t listen to the facts and both science of the parties. She has especially ruined children’s lives because she does not listen to the facts and because she is biased and she favors certain sides. Worst
Judge EVER!

Worst Judge I have ever encountered. She is absolutely biased. Does not listen to both sides. She does NOT listen to the facts of the case at all, ever. She makes up her mind about someone with out even listening to the details or facts about the case. She is rude and does NOT do her job. She does NOT read any pleadings or motions. She has the power of authority and that affects people’s lives and she should absolutely NOT have that power. She should have NEVER been a Judge. She is a bitter woman who does NOT know what being a Judge truly means. She abuses her power in EVERY way. A Judge should be unbiased and actually LISTEN to the facts and details of the case. This woman DOES NOT. She makes rash opinions and decisions without listening to both parties and she is ruining lives by being in her position. She has ruined families due to her biased decisions. I have first hand witnessed her harsh rulings of innocent people when she has believed lies of others which have ruined a family along with the families children because she did not listen to both sides of a case. She is absolutely harsh in her judgments and she rewards liars and people who are breaking the law. While the innocent go punished and have their lives ruined because this “judge “ doesn’t listen to both sides and makes snap judgments and favors one side over the other. She does NOT follow the rule of the Law. She is completely biased and discriminatory.
