What others have said about Hon. Barry G. Williams


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD6800
He is the main reason the police officers in the Freddie Gray case think they can sue Marilyn Mosby. Those cases against Mosby are without merit. But some white male judge in federal court now thinks so, since Williams sided with the white establishment, and cleared those officers. A prosecutor should never be fearful of suing police officers for bad conduct just because of judges like Williams, who make it difficult for the prosecutor.

I've only had the pleasure of appearing before him a few times that I can now recall. On those occasions, he seemed sharp, and had no time for morons, nitwits or liars.
