Comment #: IL1513
Rating:Not Rated
This judge was fair to both male and female. She told my ex-wife that she can not stick me with her student loans when she decided to quit CPS and work for a charter school, the judge saw right threw her BS and said if she would for CPE the loans would be forgiven and it was her choice that she left and why she he be stuck with the loans. The judge also was not having none of the ex wifes BS that I was abusive like 8 years ago and needed an order of protection and called her out on her games of conflict. Out of 10 I would give this judge a 9.5 Much better then some of the other judges.

This is one of the most disrespectful, unprofessional and biased judges I have ever encountered -- and as a frequent expert witness, I have met a lot of judges. If you are male and you end up on her docket, immediately file for a change of venue. Even if you are not male, the process is terrible enough without a judge belittling you and refusing to listen to the facts of the case. Make sure that you pay attention to the 2016 elections, vote, and make sure this person is removed from the bench. This judge embodies everything that is wrong with American jurisprudence today.
