Comment #: IL2497
Rating:1.0
Comments:
Does not appear to have any education or training on domestic violence, trauma, or ACE’s (adverse childhood events). For any professional stepping foot inside of a family court this is unacceptable, but for a judge to be lacking this knowledge demonstrates an utter lack of concern or even curiosity about the people who’s lives will be decided upon by him. Furthermore he is incompetent on a very basic level. Allows himself to be manipulated by abusers, letting them drag cases out for extreme lengths of time—several years—does not read evidence submitted to him, or listen to testimony. This judge is worse than useless. He is damagingly incompetent, lacks basic people skills, respect or even empathy for trauma victims. Judge Boyd is overly concerned with courtroom decorum to the point of being overtly hostile. He seems to be intentionally trying to intimidate confused civilians who appear before him by interrupting their every sentence, raising his voice at them, and generally scowling at them. Boys gets an F.
