What others have said about Hon. David Dugan



Comment #: FL8126
Judge Dugan takes interest in the cases he presides over. He goes the extra mile to insure a fair and equitable trial and decision. His temperament is calm, patient and deliberate. He wants to hear all sides of an issue and does not prejudge a case.


Comment #: FL6533
If your a defendant you hit the lottery, if your a victim hoping he holds felons accountable you will be in disappointment. This violent felon who was issued Community control for 4 years and has had 3 VOP's on top of new arrests was arrested on new felony and misdemeanors and only given more community control, meanwhile causing more and more problems for people of Brevard. The citizens deserve better.

Can appear extremely biased.


Comment #: FL6467
Judge seems to have an anger control problem and to be biased. Abuses his power by falsely accusing litigants and in some cases, threatens prosecution.
