Comment #: IL2236
This judge is prejudice and rude. I've never seen such a insensitive judge in all my life. I was evicted because someone lied about my service animal supposedly attempted to attack a neighbor. Which was a puppy at the time. Then I was given 5 days to leave the property after living there for 10 years. I was told after I attempted to bring Dr.paperwork in to court that,the paperwork meant absolutely nothing and that if he was able he would have the sheriff's come put my things on the sidewalk that day if he could. That I should have moved after my first court date. And that. I filed a complaint and now it's all cloak and dagger. I'm homeless and still don't know if anything is happened or gonna happen. He discriminated against me and my service animal. He told the sheriff to not allow my service animal into his courtroom and didn't even take my disability into consideration.

seems abrupt and rude - unnecessarily. more concerned about pace rather then quality of his court actions.
