WORST JUDGE EVER!! No ability to act within the law whatsoever. Gender biased and remarkably ignorant on every level. Illinois is being served a great injustice under her.

Judge Katz is in my 1st amendment right...a self-serving, unlawful, gender-biased CUNT!!! Absolutely NO respect for the law & masterfully uses her personal bias in her rulings claiming she is gollowing the law. She had proven payments of over $15,000 in front of her face & stated that she would not deduct the arrears that the respondent lied about using a false petition!! Then the respondent was ordered to place children on insurance for 2 yrs in which the petitioner paid yet did not hold the respondent (female) in contempt nor refund the full amount to the petitioner. Why is this witch even allowed to make decisions that affect others when she so clearly is incapable of anything more than wearing that robe disrespectfully. UNLAWFUL BITCH!!

BIASED in divorce situation is an understatement- ignoring an obvious fraud perpetrated by ex as well as emotional damages to my child, in favor of saving face?

Judge Nancy Katz is so obviously gender biased against male litigants that I was initially shocked by this display. I began to expect it after a couple of appearances before her. She tries her best to side with female litigants. For example, my ex-wife indicated that she had not worked for the majority of our 13-year marriage. I handed the ex-wife's resume that she had made to Judge Katz, and Judge Katz brushed it off by saying that I had "probably" perjured myself, too. The resume showed that she had always worked in professional capacities, consistently. I knew Judge Katz's mindset at that point, and her bias remained consistent throughout my case.

Judge Katz is biased, favoring women in divorce cases. She does not follow the law when a women is in contempt, ever. JUDGE KATZ HAS NEVER HELD A WOMAN IN CONTEMPT OF COURT! She instead punishes the former husband by ordering him to pay the ex-wife's legal fees! And even awards the one in contempt more maintenance! How's that for fair?

Judge Katz appears to be biased in divorce situations. It seems that she favors women over men. She needs to be more open-minded with regard to the father's rights, not just the mother's rights.
