Extremely hard-working and pleasant judge. Well-reasoned, thoughtful opinions, whether written or extemporaneously delivered.


Comment #: IL3899
judge MULLEN, [redacted] , as recidivist, so he would not pity himself, as offensively declared about his “other-judges having to deal with this pro se Plaintiff”:
• Following e-mail arguments regarding hard copy printed materials, conditionally demanded by judge, a misconduct of court’s personnel encouraged and tolerated by judge in terms of Plaintiff’s status.
• Rude conduct towards the Plaintiff, calling the exhibits filed as “dump”, while vengefully shortening the due dates allowed for answers.
• Incompetence, without knowledge of the meaning of “mootness” or “decision”.
• [redacted]
• [redacted]
• Preconceived bias attitude against the pro-se Plaintiff [redacted] .
• [redacted] .
• [redacted]
• Siding with Defendants [redacted]
• Its illegal orders, in violation of Illinois Compiled Statutes 735 ILCS 5 Code of Civil Procedure, created immense financial prejudice to Plaintiff’s family, emboldening the Defendants to further retaliate, to deteriorate the children’s wellbeing to a state of famine during Pandemic and throughout time.
• Court’s orders issued are [redacted] and become offensive and slanderous toward the pro-se Plaintiff, further victimizing his family.
• Siding with Defendants through [redacted] becoming an instrument in violating Plaintiff’s Rights under the Civil Rights Acts, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, the Illinois Human Rights Act (775 ILCS 5) The Food Stamp Act of 1977, the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 Grievance Procedure.
