An utterly repulsive judge, Barnes presents a clear and present danger to the people who have him assigned to their case or who have to go before him.

Rude, arrogant, and mentally inferior. Not sure how he was approved to be a judge. I would rate him the worst judge in Massachusetts.

He is truly awful. The worst judge I've come across, and that's saying something as I've seen many judges. He should be send to a Russian gulag honestly, and if it were up to me he would already be there.
