I recently tried a civil matter before Judge Eaves. Her courtroom demeanor was very good. Although the proceedings sometimes moved slower than they should have, overall, I believe that her handling of this trial was very good. Generally, she was right on the money in her rulings on evidentiary issues. She was pleasant and even-handed with both attorneys. The case was not all that complex, but I certainly believe that she has the ability of handling matters with some complexity.

Judge Eaves granted me a protection order against my husband in 2007. I was married for 22 years and he battered me by strangulation. I wrote those exact words in my complaint. I went to trial alone in 2009 with no attorney. She granted my attacker custody of my daughters, after she had already issued me a protection order including my daughters in 2007. I have not seen my daughters since 2009. I have no mental health history or criminal history, unlike my ex-husband. She now blames me -- the victim. My ex-husband was even on probation for assaulting me and got my daughters through a rotten ex parte hearing. The judges are allowing abusers to use the court system as a weapon of torture. Judge Eaves has no morals or ethics. She lies and covers up things that occur in her courtroom. Parent reunification was ordered, and no family therapist was ever named for my daughters. She, in a legal way, cut off my parental rights for no reason other than that I reported a crime in 2007 -- which my ex-husband admits to. I filed for divorce and I am now homeless, childless and penniless after a 22-year marriage where I was the primary caregiver. My ex-husband remarried and has a six-figure income. Judges Eaves should be fired for what she has done to me and my daughters. I cannot have more children. The cruelty is beyond belief. I have not seen my daughters since 2009, after the reports were made of my daughters verbally attacking me like my ex-husband did. Judge Eaves is not for women, and discriminates against stay-at-home mothers. I did not receive earned alimony, and was ordered to pay my attacker child support for teaching my daughters to attack me. I am homeless, and was ordered to pay my attacker. I begged for an attorney to be assigned to my daughters and one for myself. She refused. It is like my ex-husband paid this judge off. She is rotten and lies to cover up her mistakes. She refuses to address her errors. My case is a classic example of a battered mother, and she just allows the abuser to abuse my daughters and I. Evidence abounds regarding my ex, and I have a pristine past. She is a horrible judge and is a cruel woman to stay-at-home mothers. She clearly does not know what equal rights are. The Justice Department has studied judges like her, and they clearly say that Judge Eaves failed to follow federal laws. She ignores both civil rights and federal laws that clearly stand for domestic violence victims.
