Comment #: MD6237
This was a bail review, an unconstitutional bail was set at $40k, this is an amount I could never pay. I am a recluse and have Aspergers. I have multiple medical issues which prevent me from doing day to day activities. I have never had any criminal charges. I am in no way a flight risk and the charges were excessive, the Grand Jury dismissed majority of charges which could have been construed as "serious". She didn't even listen to my public defender, she was did not listen to the fact I am disabled, under multiple doctors care, and I have Asperger Syndrome. She had made her decision before she ever sat down, no review was made of the circumstances, and I feel that not only was this a case of "reverse prejudice, this is a blatant disrespect for what our judicial system should be and is intended to be. A bail is set to ensure you show up for court, not as a punishment forcing a person to sell off and beg, and borrow for freedom that is afforded to me by the 8th amendment.
This judge has no respect or is not bright enough to understand that The American's Disability Act - Section II gives me certain rights which were not afforded. Because of another rating I want indicate that I am white, middle aged male who lives in a relatively nice suburban neighborhood. The person who went after me was an African American who was being charged with a firearm charge and had told me he had prior offenses and a record. The attorney commented after the judge lowered this man's bail, that he had never seen a bail review lower the bail so much in his life. I am not taking anything away from the defendant, just pointing out this Judge is not an impartial judge and should be removed from the bench.

This judge needs to be FIRED. She is PREJUDICE and HATES WHITE people and finds them guilty of crimes they did not even commit and were made up and also hates LANDLORDS. We need to do everything we can do to get her unseated at ONCE. She is a treat to the State of MD Legal system. She herself should be thrown in jail.

I appeared before her on a domestic violence matter and found her very fair and even. I think sadly a lot of people posting on here just don't like the fact that an intelligent woman can hold a position of power!

She had an obvious biased towards African Americans. She treated them differently and spoke to them respectfully and quietly, making sure they understood everything. Since my son is caucasian, her attitude towards him was completely different than the African Americans prior to his case coming before her. For a minor paraphernalia charge (no drugs or residue on paraphernalia), he had to fly to MD from his current residence in the midwest to appear before her. He told her that he had moved and gotten away from the element he was involved in while in MD. He explained that he has moved his life in a positive direction - he has a house, a good job, etc. She didn't want to hear the plea or the attorney general's (prosecutor) suggestion (which was a fine of $500). She charged him guilty. He now will lose his job and his home because of his record. Even the attorney general representatives were mortified. She is on a power trip against white people. Worst judge ever.

Should be removed from the bench. This Judge has personal issue which reflect poorly in the court. Totally defendant biased. Insulting, gruff, abusive.


Comment #: MD2988
We are a property management company that has to file every month for non-payment of rent. This Judge is completely biased for the side of the tenant who has NOT paid rent. Judge Mosley speaks in very quiet voice, very fast so you cannot even understand what is going on with your own case. She is discourteous, condescending, boorish and curt with all the individuals attempting to get the rent that is due to them. Why she thinks not paying rent is acceptable, esp when you have a voucher and your rent could be as little as $100 - I cannot fathom. I have no idea what her issue is, it seems personal and she should NOT be allowed to hear these kinds of cases. Completely unacceptable.

I've appeared before her several times. I've found her management and administration of the docket to be efficient and fair. She's been evenhanded, and considers both sides prior to rendering her decision.

Bad temper. I have seen her scream from the bench. She prejudges certain issues without hearing evidence. She is only on the bench for political reasons and she will likely not improve with age. Keeping my fingers crossed that they don't move her to the Circuit Court.
