What others have said about Hon. Kevin Selby



Comment #: MO328
I wish there were more judges like Selby. He's firm, to the point, and in my opinion generally cares about the kids (family court). He wants the parents to take responsibilitiy for their actions, do the case plan for reunification, and get on with their lives. If they have attitude or don't do the CP he wants to know why. Don't lie to him and expect him to just ignore it. He's on top of his game!

Not only is this judge unprofessional, he has personal vendettas that he should recuse himself from hearing a case that involves him and the subject in previous personal conflicts. Absolutely no personal integrity! Should be Disbarred!

Great! Wish all judges held people accountable for their actions (or lack thereof) like he does.

To say the least, this judge is unprofessional. He is very aggressive and takes things to a personal level.
