Comment #: MD7103
This judge allowed my then landlord to get away with harassment. When I filed a petition for peace order, he denied it, despite evidence of harassing communications and a pattern of erratic behavior. He, instead "encouraged" me to move out prior to the 30 days I was entitled to BY LAW as of the end of my lease term. He seemed bored by the entire process, and disinterested with my very valid concerns. I was forced to move out early, and incurred additional expense due to his negligence on the bench. I filed a police report and a complaint with the MD Attorney General office of consumer protection. Both law enforcement, and the AG's office found my concerns to be valid. The respondent lied under oath, numerous times, and she is unfit to serve as a landlord in the State of Maryland. IF she even has a rental license, it should be revoked. I am not the first tenant to complain of harassment and invasion of privacy. Her behavior is unsettling, and this judge failed to hold her accountable.

It is shocking that this Judge is yet on the Bench!

PG County District Courts - should be cleaned out.

Is Judge Aaron still allowed to rule after he has been inflicting financial and emotional harm on homeowners ruling in the wrong jurisdiction and with no laws or precedence to support it. He is part of the problem clearly. He needs to be disbarred.

This judge should not be on the bench. He is either stupid or angry. A narcissistic guy I dated in the past was granted a PO against me. Before the PO was granted he asked me to come back to him. I ignored him. After it was granted the guy told me drop dead in a message. In another message he asked me to marry him. In another he asked me forget the past be the person I once was. The guy started calling and texting me. I got scared. Filed a PO against him. I Went before this ignorant judge and he asked the guy what I did to him and said I don’t have a case. I walked out of the court room in tears and scared to death for my life. I don't know what this marcisstic fool will do to me. This ignorant judge never asked him why are you contacting her within a couple of days of being granted PO or why did you adk her to come back to you and followup with a PO? I don’t know what to do now. I am afraid he may kill me and there is no help for me.

Civil Litigation - Private

I appeared before this judge for a protective order proceeding. He made numerous incorrect evidentiary rulings, and he clearly favored the petitioner. For instance, he awarded relief that was not requested or pled! I left the trial bewildered, until I spoke to other attorneys who had similar encounters with him. Needless to say my client appealed for a de novo hearing before a Circuit Court judge and we were victorious. If you appear before him, do NOT believe that having sound jurisprudence and a strong knowledge of evidence and procedure will assist your advocacy, because the judge lacks fundamental jurisprudence. I can honestly say that but for the training that he likely received as a new judge, I would say that he is inept.
