Spent two years and $$ trying to get to a jury trial with "Bastard" FL Statute 617.07401. Judge accepted fraudulent documents without foundation or notice of evidentiary hearing. Slam Dunk dismissal,
Every decision was error, No evidentiary hearing for us and two hours of evidentiary with five attorneys costing $60K for fees. No equal protection, due process or right to jury trial. Waiting on 2DCA final ruling. Very angry with Judge, Florida and not sure what federal options are. Need to look into void.

A lawsuit is being considered to those victims of Krier who were subjected to Due Process violations or other constitutional violations that would render her judgments void or void ab initio. There is no time limit to launch an attack on a void judgment. Contact me if your case falls into this category. We are looking at both federal and state actions as far away as New York State and possibly in the Miami area. Not legal advice, seek advice of an attorney to assess the specifics of the abuse foisted upon you by Krier. XFREEDOM2020 [AT] PROTONMAIL [DOT] COM

Over the years, how many complaints from victims of KRIER have been posted on this site, yet nothing can be done. That is the disgrace!! These judicial officials are PUBLIC SERVANTS but KRIER acts like she is CEASER AGUSTUS, but this is not ROME, in 43 A.D. We all know what happened to CEASER, when the citizens of ROME rose up and voiced their opposition. ???? When will that happen to KRIER? Judges are supposed to be impartial, and have time or take the time to read important documents related to a case, but KRIER refuses to do this over and over again. If she cannot perform this task related to her "position" then she should not be a JUDGE. It's totally disgusting and we the taxpayers are supporting her. That's even more disgusting, AND her retirement!! How old is she, anyway, does anybody out there know?

I knew of her misconduct, so I removed the case to federal court. She exclaimed at hearing "Nothing gets removed from my court -- EVER". I thought her head was going to do a 360 like linda blair in the exorcist. The interesting thing is that in the courts e-filing system, it lists removal to federral court as frequently filed procedure.

She believes she is some God-like entity and creates all law on the spot.

Here's my site largely about her craziness.

Why this family court Judge presided over my insurance fraud case is beyond me. My home was hit by a tornado during hurricane Irma. My insurance company denied the claim yet paid my alternative housing and sent $6,000 of my $200,000 claim. I filed suit against the insurance company. Insurance refuses to do depositions and broke every normal protocol of their own policy, then runs to Judge Krier, for an emergency hearing to dismiss my case. My attorney had a one week notice to appear for dismissal of my case. Judge Krier immediately and condescendingly dismissed my entire case without allowing my Attorney to even speak. My Attorney immediately filed a reconsideration motion, which she also denied. I am now waiting to go to a higher appellant court in several months. I hope the appellant court sees how dismissive and irresponsible she treated my case.
I had no idea she has a pattern of this, but was shocked Amy Judge would only hear one side and make an abrupt life altering decision like that. Especially in an area of law that she knows nothing about.

NO, she does like male attorneys, one in particular, hangs on every word he uttered, even though it was FAKE FACTS!!
Why do so many put up with her, why can't something be done to IMPEACH her? It's because nobody cares at the oversight bureau even though complaints are filed. She should be in D.C., she'd fit in quite well with all the other liars, cheats, and greedy politicians who are only concerned with one thing: POWER

She doesn't know the law and is arbitrary, dismissive, and insulting with pro se defendants. I believe that she is sexist and has no use for males. My opposition is female as well as her attorney. 3:1. She doesn't listen to arguments. I was never served and she didn't care, she just went on with hearing although she did schedule for an evidentiary hearing. What an arrogant attitude.

Krier should be IMPEACHED!!! A similar thing happened while she presided over a case that I was involved with, which gave the opposition a definite advantage. She had no time to read documents which would have helped her reach the CORRECT verdict. Isn't that part of her job as a JUDGE? She needs to be impeached/removed because over the years there are a number of litigants that she has destroyed, yet nobody cares, at the STATE level, through Appeal, or locally.....how does she remain in such a powerful position with such incompetency?

The Judicial System should be outraged that Krier is still sitting on a 'BENCH'!!This woman is bitter, angry, and has had some tragedy in her life which has made her cold, hard, and resentful taking it out on innocent victims that come before her in the courtroom. It's not only children that are being damaged by her unlawful rulings, there are many others outside FAMILY COURT. She should be impeached, but we all know that there is NO OVERSIGHT for Judges. It's a real crime that the tax paying public has to put up with the likes of Krier. Maybe on her 90th birthday she'll decide to RETIRE!!!! Can we really wait that much longer?

I am shocked that she is still practicing and more shocked that she is a judge

It is difficult to "rate" a judge when that judge has no wisdom for patent law or precise litigation law. Judge Krier is more interested in "flushing

KRIER must be "well connected" to still sit on the bench. The question I have is why can't SOMEBODY do something to remove her with so many complaints being submitted about her practically from the time she came to the injustice center in Lee County. Why does the public put up with her? Collectively, we should be able to do something to 'DE-BENCH' the unHonorable Judge Krier. She does not follow the law, admits she doesn't have time to read documents pertaining to a case before her and is easily influenced by the attorneys who suck up to her. Krier has had multiple "reversals" recently through the 2nd DCA, that's right, MULTIPLE REVERSALS. I'm waiting for the fall of 2018 when she comes up for re-election.....if she were smart, she'd RETIRE! She's a DISGRACE to the profession of LAW!

You shouldn't be surprised....this has happened multiple times in her "courtroom">>she admits she doesn't have time to read hundreds of pages of documents at a recent hearing which affected the outcome. She should NOT be a sitting Judge, and when 2018 comes I plan to do whatever is necessary to "de-bench" her. The public has a RIGHT to a informed, intelligent and law abiding judge, that's just not the case with Krier. She is UN HONORABLE....she's also dangerous and in the hip pocket of some of the local attorneys in town. That, in itself, goes against anyone's CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF COMMON LAW which governs all of us. What a disgrace for Lee County, I don't understand why somebody can't recognize what is going on in her courtroom and the discrimination she demonstrates. Pretty soon it will be 2018.....just another few months.

judge Krier challenges the efficacy of the justice system due to her ignorance of patent law and business contract law. This proved to be very much the case when she defied the Patent and Trademark Office statement "a patent shall not be diminished in its scope..." as presented by Dr. Bickel Phd. of patent law at a Edison Inventors Counsel meeting.The result was that a large corporation with lots of "swag" beat the inventor out of his Royalty, his retirement funds, his IRA and savings to finance his case, and finally drive him to personal bankruptcy; and the judge need not give any explanation for her execution! Justice is blind when she disregards patent law for her own motives.

Judge Krier is fair and stern. She guides herself by the rules and upholds the law. She is very clear in her ruling and has a calendar which offers plenty of hearing time on her docket. She allows telephonic appearances for most of her hearings without motions and orders, which reduces the amounts of filings and saves the attorney’s time.

Judge Krier is the epitome of a fish out of water. Would actually be more accurate to say a fish in a desert. With absolutely NO background or experience in civil or business litigation, the "great" 20th Circuit somehow decided she is fit to preside over civil cases. She lacks even the most remote concept of reality in how civil/business litigation actually works and continuously enforces irrelevant and erroneous family law rules against giant national corporations. Her inflexibility is rather comical, although it usually serves to severely prejudice plaintiffs since the big bad corporate defendants she hates oh so much can afford to deal with her rogue rulings, even though they should not have to. Maybe the 20th Circuit is using Judge Krier as a line of defense to limit the number of cases filed... although that would be contrary to the purpose of our legal system, it would be right in line with Judge Krier's openly prejudicial rulings. What makes all of this even worse is that the heinous Judge Krier has been a known offender of our legal system for many years now, yet she is still sitting up on her pedestal talking down to every litigant in her ever-so-gracious condescending tone.

To #FL 4499 you are 'SPOT ON' about Krier.
She is a disgrace to the legal system, and is rude and insulting to just about everybody who comes in contact with her in a courtroom. Recently, she turned to an expert witness on the stand and said: "I hope you're not here to explain the law to me"! Well, somebody should, she just doesn't GET IT. She is projecting her anger and maliciousness towards the vulnerable public who have the right to DUE PROCESS. What is her problem, anyway? Time to investigate privately, perhaps??? Something is wrong and more and more innocent people are seeing their CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS violated by Krier. Why should we accept this? What can be done to remove her from the bench?

Judge Krier has an absolutely absurd view of the role of the judicial system and her role in the judicial system. Aside from being downright unpleasant at all times, she hides behind a facade of being a stickler for "the rules" but yet refuses to entertain BINDING case law on how to interpret those same rules! Then she will conveniently decide not to enforce other rules as they are plainly and unambiguously written. She denies Joint Stipulations as a regular practice. No one knows how their case should be worked better than Judge Krier. But what's even worse is that she has been denying JOINT Motions to Continue Trial as if satan himself would strike her down if she granted them. Completely disregarding the fact that the case hadn't even been to mediation (which is REQUIRED!), neither party was remotely ready for trial, both parties would incur an incredible amount of prejudice if forced to trial, and this was the first request to continue, she denied a Joint Motion to Continue after not allowing a hearing on the motion but requiring it to be heard at calendar call, and then giving just 1 minute to only 1 party to make an argument. Even worse is that she based her ruling on the fact that "you both chose this trial date," which is a complete misrepresentation because Lee County forces every case onto a trial docket even without a motion from any party, which was the case here. She then went on to say that the requests of both clients to engage in settlement discussions in an attempt to resolve the matter without incurring any unnecessary client or court costs was immaterial and not worthy of discussion? Hmmmm, encouraging settlement and preservation of client and judicial resources, those sound familiar. Oh yea! It's because they are MAJOR tenets of what our judicial system stands for! We've all encountered unreasonable, biased, unruly, pompous, and even somewhat incompetent judges before, but Judge Krier makes every other judge in this state look as if they should win a Nobel Peace Price. I would recommend that she be removed from all civil/business litigation and go back to family law, but surprisingly she doesn't have a great reputation in family law either. Shocking. Complaints to the Judicial Qualifications Commission have apparently gone unnoticed, as she has been the subject of many. Hopefully the JQC finally gets around to explaining to Judge Krier how the law exactly works, or hopefully she decides for early retirement. My advice, waive venue and file in other jurisdictions where she can't ruin cases.

This judge is known to be biased when it comes to family court. She is not fair, and it is apparent by the comments that she makes on a personal level during proceedings. She does not allow family intervention in DCF cases, and is quick to take the parents' rights away and leave the family out in the cold. She promotes adoptions and foster care, thereby costing the state money rather than restoring kids to their families.
