No, it’s not ODD!!The comments are deleted by “Judge Creighton” herself. She is too weak, pathetic, to handle what the public has to say about her! She stupid as ever. Recall a warrant in her own handwriting for her criminal sex thing. Her entire career down the drain all for sex. Claim, she is Spanish to get votes. But check “WHITE” on her peace order. Dud!! It’s a little late for that Judge Creighton it’s all over the internet. She is the only one that thinks she was a good choice for a Judge. She is the only one that thinks she can sing. Judge Creighton you are the worst choice of a Judge. You only got the slot because they needed a Spanish person. It might have been posted by her little ugly boyfriend why she never delete it. Sleeping with a low life criminal thirty years younger than her. Move him in her house even after she elevated to Circuit Court. Where very serious decision are made. For years it’s been said in the court house she like little boys. No, one in their right mind can be that lonely. I, have a feeling her female body parts are not working that’s why she can’t get a real man. She also told us she was married. She has never been married or have any kids. I, never liked her. I had a case before her one time. The, entire time she was focus on how she looked. Always showed up at legal functions half naked or tight red dress with bright red hoe lipstick. Her lipstick was always uneven. That’s a sign she is unstable. I, say Judge Creighton need more than a mental health evaluation. She is as crazy as the criminals she represented. That's as sick as a child molester. A grown women who sit on the circuit Court Bench and Judge us. She, definitely, took advantage of Rickey Senning, because he needed a place to stay. I am not sure how she face herself in the morning. A very bad choice for a role model to our women. Actions speak louder than words. Creighton’s actions have proven she is a disgrace to the legal profession, to the judiciary, to the criminal justice system as a whole and to American University. Undeniably, she leaves a black mark on the reputation of all these entities. Her actions have produced serious consequences and cast tremendous doubt on her ability to serve. She needs to go. No the bottom two post are from Judge Creighton herself. It’s the only way she can get a positive review. The diaper snatcher herself. Why you think she never delete them. So full of herself. And makes the stupidest decision. A liar, and foolish ass. Let's see how full she be in November. Bye - bye Audrey. You are a waste of tax payer’s money. Shame on you. No judge has ever been as dirty and scandalous as you. At least get a real man.

A rarity on this bench, Judge Morrissey is extremely charming, hardworking, intelligent, and even-handed. He knows the law, and figures it out if he doesn't. His judgments are well thought out and his awards are always fair. The best District Court judge in the county, if not the entire state.

PG County has too many terrible judges. Thank goodness Judge Morrissey breaks that trend. It is nice to praise a good judge now and then. If only we could clone him!

I have been before him a dozen or so times and each time the ruling he gave was spot on. He's one of the very best in Prince George's County.

I normally shy from this site, because I usually have nothing nice to say, but I will make an exception for Judge Morrissey. He has an even temperment, is a pleasure to work with, and you do not feel awful when you lose because he has the ability to articulate why he ruled. He should be on the Circuit Court bench, but I would not hold my breath on that score because of his race in PG County (more's the pity).

Had criminal trial. Judge was very patient in listening to testimony. Gave well reasoned opinion. Was very courteous to all participants. I am not from PG County but he called my case ahead of two other trials that were older cases being handled by the public defenders office.
