What others have said about Hon. Megan B. Johnson


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD6773
After a dozen cases before her (some wins and some losses), I believe that she is useless as a judge in civil litigation. She never allows facts or law to interfere with who she thinks should win. She has no concept of the meaning of her oath of office.

Comment #: MD6201
Also ready to resolve a small claim against the defendant. A female litigant always has a very good chance of winning.


Comment #: MD4967
Very fair judge in applying "reasonable doubt" standards! Knows her stuff!

Rating:Not Rated
Yes, she is fair sometimes, but I think that she made her decision a few days before the hearing. She acts like she doesn't want to hear anything.

Reasonable and fair, but definitely no-nonsense. The decision that she renders may be a decision that you don't like, but it will be fair.
