This judge literally tried to dress me down for delays caused by opposing counsel. He was totally clueless. Bad scholarship, bad judgment. Maybe he should read up on a file before he throws a fit.


Comment #: MD1777
Absolutely draconian. He wanted to lock me up for 30 days for rescuing my cat. A landlord filed an erroneous protective order because she didn't want to give me 30 days to move out. When I was served at work (I only went "home" to sleep as I was avoiding her as much as possible) I was told by the police AND sheriffs that I would have to wait 3 days to retrieve my "property". I refused to let my cat starve so I got her along with her food & despite having solid evidence (timesheets & letter from my boss) that the landlord perjured herself on the protective order he still wanted to throw the book at me for violating it.

In criminal cases, horrible DUI trail judge but great sentencer. Judge Simmons is very smart and knows the law. His background is amazing - it can be summed up in one word, "courage".
