It doesn't take a genius to see this judge for what she is. Who else but a thoroughly dishonest, corrupt and grossly unfit judge would constantly hack into this site to delete specific evidence of this judge's absurd, unjust and lopsided rulings, such as the following:

One of Creighton's first cases on the bench was a simple motor vehicle tort claim in which a citizen was rammed at 96 m.p.h. and permanently maimed for life by an illegal alien (a “landscaper” who spoke no English) after he ran the intersection which the citizen had properly entered on a green light.
This was shortly after she attended a lavish reception in honor of her appointment to the bench by CASA de Maryland, the local affiliate of National Council of LaRaza(the “Race”), an organization that has been called “dangerous” and “inherently racist” by the late Caesar Chavez among others. From that point on it became abundantly clear to Judge Creighton on what side her bread was buttered.

In that case, marked by extreme bias shown by the judge throughout trial, Judge Creighton ruled that it was not the MAIF illegal, with his history of reckless driving, but rather the citizen who was at fault, for not driving fast enough to get out of the way of the illegal alien who blasted into the intersection.
She further violated Canons of Judicial Ethics, first by her failure to disclose her Conflict of Interest at the start of the trial and recuse herself, and then her cover-up of a felony known to her to have been committed by the defense attorney which was material to that case, which she not only declined to remedy but failed to report as required under Maryland's Code of Professional Conduct as well.
Most revealing about Maryland’s judicial system is that in spite of the Commission on Judicial Disabilities’ knowledge of Judge Creighton’s misfit for a position on the bench, her criminal cover-up, her history of dishonesty, and the impartiality and impropriety she brought with her to the bench, they did nothing, instead letting her rise to a level of her own incompetence and disgrace to the legal profession.

A judge who fraternizes with and benefits from LaRaza, a racist organization that practices invidious discrimination, and its local affiliate CASA de Maryland, the same one that was instrumental in getting the former governor to appoint her to the bench.
Doesn't judicial ethics require that judges disqualify themselves when deciding cases that might benefit clients of such organizations or even give the appearance of such bias? But then again, since when have the rules ever prevented Judge Creighton from holding herself above the law?

It seems that every so often, more often than not and most noticeable in the days leading up to the last judicial so-called election, all the negative comments about this judge’s dishonesty and lack of ethics keep getting deleted, while the bottom two or three favorable ones, unbelievable fantasy as they are, are saved, as if by the judge herself.
If the bottom comments really are from Criminal Defense attorneys, they must have had career criminal or illegal amigo clients who committed horrendous crimes. Of course they’re happy that Judge Creighton got them off, and now they show gratitude by fawning over her with falsities about her “legal acumen and judicial management.” What a joke! “Fair, smart and understanding”? Are those lawyers on drugs? Or are they worried if Creighton gets kicked off the bench they might find themselves without their supplier?

Judge Audrey Creighton must resign. Anyone who exhibits the kind of unconscionable, predatory behavior that she has shown via her relationship with Rickly Senning is in desperate need of psychiatric care.

Indisputably, Judge Creighton does not possess good judgment; ergo, she should not be in a position of power where she is able to determine other peoples' fates. She must step down. Period.

No excuses. She lied on an official police report; she harbored a violent criminal; she failed to recuse herself and she engages in judicial retaliation against those Marylanders who dare call her out on her criminality.

The recent Sentinel Newspaper article about Creighton raised some interesting questions as to why she would hire such a well-connected criminal defense attorney to represent her. After all, aren't Montgomery County sitting judges generally regarded as above the law?
Q: Why does this judge seek out and surround herself with all manner of criminals?
A: All the better to help her commit her crimes, such as the cyber criminals she has employed to hack into this site to delete the hundreds of negative comments which expose her for what she is.
Q: Why does this judge seek out and surround herself with crack-hoes and other assorted liars-for-hire, going all the way back to her days as a public pretender?
A: All the better to aid her in suborning perjury when she gets caught and needs all the help she can get covering up her crimes.

Some judges choose justice. Some judges choose money. With Judge Creighton it is no contest. She will always choose the later when self-gratification and/or personal enrichment is an option. With this judge on the bench it is one miscarriage of justice after another.

For those who think that a judge need not adhere to judicial ethics, should not be held accountable for her actions and be given carte blanche to do whatever she wants to do, please pay attention.
From www.MyRealityLaw.org/blog --

The American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct prohibit a lawyer from having “sexual relations with a client unless a consensual sexual relationship existed between them when the client-lawyer relationship commenced”. Most states have adopted this rule or something analogous. Presumably, Creighton and Senning did not have a consensual relationship prior to his becoming her client. Senning was 19 at the time; the future judge was 48.

The first question to be addressed from this matter is: what the hell was Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley thinking when he appointed Creighton to the bench? This, in turn, involves the subsidiary question: What kind of vetting was done before Creighton was given the awesome responsibility to make decisions effecting the lives of litigants who come before her? It is difficult to believe that the Creighton/Senning affair was a total secret. Something like that is bound to get out and, once it’s out, it is way out. Everybody knows about it and soon. Was Creighton’s unprofessional conduct overlooked or ignored by those trusted with the responsibility of assuring the integrity of judicial appointments? Or, was the process so inadequate that this lapse of professional judgment was missed? Either way, it is an embarrassment to the judiciary.

If there is one quality folks want from their judges, it is judgment. Note the similar root word. This is not a linguistic accident. Commencing an intimate relationship with a burglar/thief three decades one’s junior does not speak well of one’s judgment. It is especially troubling for a judge.

Let us examine the potential ramifications of a judge having an intimate relationship with a criminal. First, there is the possibility of blackmail. The judge may, understandably, want to keep the affair quiet. So, she may be asked to do judicial favors as a quid pro quo. Then, there is the issue of conflict of interest. If the judge becomes aware of a secret grand jury investigation involving her lover or one of his associates, can the judge be trusted not to spill the beans and compromise the investigation? Also, if the criminal has access to a judge, the criminal has access to any court records the judge has in her possession. Some of those records are sealed with good reason. Lest someone thinks love conquers all, a judge/criminal romance is a very bad idea.

Not even a pretext of principled decision making. In a case which opposition insurance company lawyer refused to provide discovery or answer interrogatories, a motion to compel and/or for sanctions (which inexplicably had not been ruled upon for nearly a year) and a renewed motion in the interim, were filed. On the day of the trial Judge Creighton refused to provide any remedy whatsoever to the outstanding motions, or even to reschedule the trial date until after compliance with discovery, because "the matter's already set-in for trial." Her verdict (surprise, surprise) went on to reward the defendant's insurance company (their lawyer even joked during recess that the "fix was in") despite overwhelming photographic evidence and testimony which should have been a slam-dunk for the plaintiff.
As author Brian Khan recently pointed out, when not only politicians but judges are allowed to receive gifts in unlimited amounts, how can a litigant really expect any justice when he goes up against deep-pocketed corporations and insurance companies?

As previously noted on this site, The Washington Post on 7/15/14 reported that Audrey Creighton is now under investigation by the Commission on Judicial Disabilities. What they did not report is that this is not the first time that she has been before the CJD on ethics charges. Not only did the Commission fail to do its job the last time around, the nominating committee failed miserably in its vetting process, and/or Creighton lied to them about her past.

Not the brightest bulb on the bench. Far from it! In District Court, whenever a decision was required, she would announce a recess, as if to make a call from chambers to whoever was advising her. When returning to the bench, more often than not, still she couldn't get it right. How did she ever get to be a judge?

I had a trial with Judge Creighton and was very impressed with the way she handled the matter. She made appropriate inferences, listened to the witnesses, and was cognizant of the law. She took the matter under advisement for approximately 30 minutes, during which time she thoroughly reviewed the evidence and made an intelligent ruling.

Judge Creighton lacks even the most basic understanding of trial mechanics, she seems to lack an appreciation for the law, and she is overwhelmingly unimpressive as a jurist. She didn't belong on the District Court bench and certainly is unqualified to sit in the Circuit Court.

The comments posted cannot be deleted by any Judge. Perhaps the reason the website is removing the comments is because the comments left are vulgar. The purpose of this website is for the people, law officials or lawyers to comment on a case that was held in front of a specific judge. Therefore, people can be aware how a judge proceeds in rulings or etc. This is not a forum to discuss the public life of any judge.
