What others have said about Hon. Nicholas Geanopoulos



Comment #: IL1284
This is NOT an honorable Judge. He should be removed from the bench for complete abuse of power!! Destroying people's lives and violating rights left and right. What he has done to Isaiah Rider and his mother Michelle is not only unjust but horrific and evil. Isaiah is a 17yr old Missouri resident and has NEVER lived in IL..his mother brought him there for help and instead they have had their lives destroyed by this man and the DCFS. Geanopoulos made Isaiah a perm ward of the State of IL last week.. A state he DOES NOT live in! How is this legal??? Isaiah is considered an adult in his home state and has expressed multiple times that he just wants to go home. But Geanopoulos refuses and continues to torment this family. It is an utter and complete abuse of his judicial power and he should be removed from the bench. FREE ISAIAH!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!

If Judge Geanopoulus was truly a Judge for "families", he would see past the lies that are being spread about Michelle Rider. He would have put two and two together when Luries Children's hospital had to keep Isaiah Rider in the ICU for almost a full MONTH AFTER his mother was banned from seeing him. If Judge Geanopoulos actually cared about CHILDREN he would have IMMEDIATELY called for an investigation into the reports of abuse that Isaiah says he was a victim of. If Judge Geanopoulos cared about actual JUSTICE, he'd stand up for the families, not the corrupt government system that has proven time and time again that the only thing important is money.

If only Judge Geanopoulos's CHILDREN, of he has any, were going through this. Karma can be very cruel.
