What others have said about Hon. Norman R. Stone, III



Comment #: MD4840
This man should not be handling cases involving victims cases along with criminal. He is a bully and shows no compassion towards people. He is a man who seems to get much pleasure over insulting people.

Public humiliation is one of the toughest things to have to live with. One can argue that it was all politics, or that one was merely trying to maintain a standard in the courtroom, but the truth is that his entire history on the bench has been reduced by the Internet to silliness. Judge Norman Stone, III will be remembered forever as, "Oh, I remember him, he was the idiot who locked people up because of their cell phones. God, what a jerk." His legacy is one thing: shame.


Comment #: MD2282
He is the worst. He abuses his power. If any other judge did what he does, they wouldn't be on the bench anymore. There have been dozens of complaints, and a ton of people who know that I am telling the truth. The citizens of Maryland should be disgusted with themselves, allowing someone like Judge Stone to even be on the bench. I guess that is the power that you have when your father is a senator.
