Comment #: IL1395
Does not want to do his job anymore and is very biased on people. Doesn't want to listen to anything attorney has to say. Worst judge ever. Needs to retire but why leave a cush job


Comment #: IL1343
Horrible! The reason on lawyers and judges is to help resolve issues when parties can not come to an agreement! Not for a judge to say I don't want to deal with it! Dealing with it is your job and if you can not do your job you should not be on that bench messing with people's lives! Having proof and paper trail is a joke because it does not get looked at anyways! The ex can steal over 6 thousand dollars of marital money with a paper trail to prove it and nothing gets done! It is a complete disgrace!! Play by the rules, yea that is a joke! Your better off taking the chances of playing just a dirty as the ex that way you will at least get something out of the deal! There is no honorable is this judge what so ever!!

Such a poor excuse for a Judge. At his age, wisdom should have set in.


Comment #: IL1109
Over many years I have had experience litigating cases in 3 States. Never have I dealt with a Judge so biased, demeaning and unreasonable. This man has no business presiding on the bench. Apparently, "Justice" in any form has long lost his interest. How sad that after many years in the legal field,he has chosen to behave as a petulant, bored child, instead of taking the opportunity to use the years of experience to bring sorely lacking wisdom and compassion to the courtroom.
When an attorney tells his client, "We
can't bring those issues up as it will bore Judge Brumund" it is long past due for him to retire. The Courts are the last stop for so many seeking justice,and failing that, direction. Judge Brumund has before him,real people, with real lives, that, through no fault of their own, land in his courtroom and must trust and abide by his decisions. He fails them all miserably. Shame on him.

Judge Brumund is a yeller. He enjoys yelling. Will ask a question, but not let you finish a response. He is rude and arrogant. Does not take into consideration the children in a case.


Comment #: IL724
Yelled at me, didn't read the complaint and made assumptions instead of reading the simple facts and accused me of having ulterior motives to get more child support, even though my ex has not reported his proper income for three years, and refused an order of protection with prior abuse. When we walked into the courtroom he was talking to the lady behind the desk and talking about the prior case loudly. This is horrible behavior, as these people should be helping abused people. Rude and arrogant.


Comment #: IL463
unprofessional. Rude,arrogant,demeaning, condescending. opinionated, preachy, looks down on people who don't have legal counsel. and will not assist litigants.
