Comment #: IL2589
I went in court today for my husband because Hr can’t miss anymore days of work Judge Nash put me on blast by asking a show of hand who had to miss. Did it ever cross your mind maybe to ask if he has any more day left to take of work before just going off so he did what we thought was best by sending a Notarize letter given permission to remove his daughter out of the state. I understand a judge job is hard but not all the time it take to humiliate and embarrass somebody standing in front of you. I laugh it of to play off in embarrassment and then you tell me to sit down I don’t know why I ask you. Everyone don’t come the court to give the judge a hard time so therefore he shouldn’t just go off and be harsh to everyone. His baby mom needed to leave on Friday cause she has a new job his child decided to go with we only did what we thought would be suffice. Please think about all points before going only of your pet peeve. That when u have kids and they are sick and hurt and days and time is used up you want someone to loose there job? Also take in the time frame the letter was sent also. I unstable Judges see and here a lot and some are upsetting more then other cases but take all into consideration.

Bad comments about Judge Nash clearly come from someone who hasn't practiced before him and many appear to be by the same person - probably someone who got their a#% handed to them for good cause. He actually has a very excellent grasp of fairness and incredible patience for the defendants that appear before him.

Be prepared for a twenty-minute lecture about heroin, even if you're only there for a broken tail light.

Seems to be motivated by his own agenda.

This guy isn't qualified to be the local dog catcher, let alone a judge. He is a pompous idiot with no more legal acumen than a third grader.


Comment #: IL497
Astonishingly big ego for a person with a fairly small legal mind.

A self-centered and self-righteous boob.

He will spend 30 minutes lecturing about heroin use when you are only at court for a speeding ticket. He is also a classic hypocrite-- he expects everyone to be a good Christian while he himself is far from it.

Ray Nash is an outstanding judge. A thoughtful and scholarly jurist, he retains a strong sense of balance and fairness after having worked on behalf of both the government and defendants in criminal cases during different parts of his career.
