Litigant

Comment #: FL3783
Rating:1.0
Comments:
This judge is simply unable to comprehend basic mathematical issues let alone complex transactions. This shortcoming results in totally unequal rulings in divorce FJ. Even when pointed out by both sides I might add you are forced ton appeal to correct.
She is also easily swayed on emotional issues resulting in her making a decision even before the other side presents the evidence, conclusatory biased at its best. Once she makes up her mind no amount of evidence to the contrary will change her mind. Again, you are forced to appeal, terrible waste of litigants resources and judicial economy. This judge is the worst of the worst.

Inept is the word that springs to mind, along with blatantly biased. Does not understand nor can grasp or follow the law and rules whichever way the wind blows regardless of evidence or proof.

Multiple attorneys that we have worked with are in continued disbelief at her numerous incorrect rulings against all logic and evidence.

It's judges like Muscarella that destroy families with their inability to perform their job in an unbiased and morally upstanding fashion. She would easily be a top contender for the worst/most embarrassingly reprehensible judge in Pinellas county.

Do not expect a fair trial, especially if you are a male in divorce litigation.
