What others have said about Hon. Richard D. Russo



Comment #: IL1154
Rating:Not Rated
A motion was brought against me for child support, medical bills, and a request for lawyer fees. I went to court representing myself (due to my first lawyer taking $40,000 with poor results and very little work. I net less than $30,000). The motion was unfounded as I had the documents in hand to prove it, however, Judge Russo did not want to hear anything I had to say about the motion. I find this Judge very disrespectful as I have done my best as a father, emotionally and financially towards our daughter. My case continues to simply bleed the financial resources from our daughter because my x-wife will not stop bringing me to court and mediation. She is simply wasting my daughter's child support on court fees, and Judge Russo doesn't want to hear what I have to say. Shame on him as he does not deserve to be a judge if he is not willing to take facts into account. On several occasions he has ignored what I have to say.
