I been reading everything about her, my friend lost his kids to this judge, allowing his ex wife to move them out of the country. REALLY??? The daughter who is 15 did not want to move and the judge said the kids do not have a say and the fact the mother remarried gives her the right to take the kids from the USA to a country they do not know the language nor do they have have family out there. The mother married a German guy who did not have a green card and had to move back yeah ok you idiot let those kids go live with a man who seemed to try and stay in our country by getting married and it didnt work and now lets move two US citizens who are 15 and 10 away from all their family and friends to be with a mother who cheated, lied and used child support to hired a lawyer to try and get her new husband green card situation in order and on top of it my friend the FATHER has to pay to fly his children home to see him. HOW IS THIS RIGHT? He is a great father, hard worker and never even had a parking ticket. But because she married and said she could not bare being away from her kids she allows her to take them? This judge did not care that the mother has anger issues, which she was arrested for, the fact the father had a restraining order for over a year and the fact she married a man she just met. I hope this judge just gets off the bench and let REAL judges rule. Ones that will listen and not make stupid jokes and just be plain rude because she sitting up on her high horse doing NOTHING but what she wants.

I hope she gets kicked off her bench. She is rude and listens to no evidence, she says one thing but does another. She even lets out right lies that are submitted to the court to rule even when proof of the lies. Makes me sick they let this disgusting woman into our court system. She should never be involved in court rooms period.

This judge's propensity to ignore repeated perjury (and even most times to reward those who perjure themselves) leaves little cause to show respect for the courts. Far too often, testimony turns into character assassination through unsubstantiated innuendo, perpetrated by both clients and their attorneys alike, which is then knee-jerk reacted upon by the judge's following of improper procedure with no regard for even a modicum of proof being presented or required. As a result, the person(s) being slandered are not only victimized by opposing council, but also victimized repeatedly by the courts when they are subjected to extra fees, wasted time, and travel expenses in order to obtain proof of their innocence. Meanwhile, the perjurers get a free pass and delays in adjudication, which again continue to penalize the victims as the attorney's fees continue to mount. As the saying goes: "It's so obvious that even Ray Charles can see it." That leaves just two questions: firstly, if a blind man can see it, why can't the judge see that the court is being manipulated? Justice should be no more blind than Ray Charles. Secondly, what level of intelligence is being displayed by the judge of this courtroom? It's high time that the courts show respect for the taxpayers who pay their salaries by recognizing the manipulators for what they are, and start penalizing them for misleading the judge, outright lying, or perjuring themselves -- felonies all.

This judge does not seem to read the motions, or even care to hear the facts from either side. She literally told the other attorney, "You're boring me." Then when my lawyer tried to speak, she said, "Are you going to bore me too?" I was attacked, and my child witnessed the whole ordeal, and has not wanted 50/50 visitation, but this judge has awarded just that, even though the D.A.'s office had a trial date set! This judge continues to deny multiple requests for child interviews, even though my child is "of age" to do so. This judge cannot possibly have the best interest of the child in mind when she doesn't even care to hear what the child has to say!

Why did she ever become a judge? She does not listen to the facts at all, she does not care what the children want at all, she favors certain lawyers and if you work in the system you're going to get whatever you want, even if you outright lie in your motion. Take her off the bench and get real judges who know how to do their job!

What a disgrace and an embarrassment! Family courts were supposed to be an improvement over the old system. Taxpayers and families are being ripped off. Why this judge was not disbarred long ago is indeed disturbing. Her actions in any other venue would be considered criminal. She needs to be prosecuted for criminal negligence and wanton endangerment -- but that would never repair the damage incurred by this monstrosity. If she is an example of what is typical in our judicial system, the Revolution was a waste of time, money, energy and human life. Vigilante justice is saintly compared to what is happening in this judge's Nevada courtroom.

I took four parenting classes and still only got three hours a week. I even did the optional drug patches and passed all of them. I just want it to be fair! I just want to watch my daughter grow up, but I'm not allowed because the mother is allowed to lie, with no proof. It's sad and I want to go public with my case because no one should be treated like this. The mother of my child is a social worker and knows how to manipulate people. Can anyone help me go public?

This judge is terrible, just terrible. Her demeanor is arrogant and condescending. She pays little or no attention to detail, and has no grasp of the laws she rules on, and therefore makes conflicting rulings from hearing to hearing.

I am embarrassed that she is on the bench. This is the rudest judge that I have ever seen. This judge clearly shows favoritism towards certain attorneys. She actually made statements of fact without any evidence supporting the statements, then proceeded to lecture me about the "best interests of the child." I have a doctorate in that area!

This judge has decided to supplement the statutes with her own opinions. It has been a nightmare dealing with this Judge. Pomrenze has repeatedly made demeaning remarks towards me and the co-litigant. Her speeches convey a perfect example of coercing the litigants into a settlement. I can see why so many people have lost trust in the judiciary. It is because of Judges like Pomrenze. She should be removed from the bench!

I was the full time father of two wonderful boys. At the initial divorce Pomeranze decided to go to NRS 125.480 to justify her decision to give the mother primary custody. 125.480 states, "Best interests of child;preferences;presumptions when court determines parent or person seeking custody is perpetrator of domestic violence or has committed act of abduction against child or any other child." None of this appllies to me in any way, shape, or form! I have been denied my right to be a father because Pomeranze applied the wrong NRS to justify her egregious decision.

Sandra Pomeranze is horrible. How do you say you want a child interviewed and then say you dont care what the child has to say and give the mother the ok to take the child because she primary and JUST (I mean just like the 3 days before court) got married and she feels that is enough reason??? Why waste people time in court. We need a judge that will read motions and if the child is interviewed listent to what the child has to say. I am a female and what I saw makes me wonder why they place bitter woman in family court if they can not be fair to both men and woman. I was just watching this case not even my issue but from what I heard I was shocked of how she rules. I hope they do take her off the bench.

Sandra Pomeranze and the word "judge" should not be used in the same sentence. She rules without evidence and apparently cannot comprehend the statutes. If she doesn't like you regardless of whether it is warranted or not, don't ever expect to get treated fairly in the future. She is a disgrace to the bench. She should be assigned to parking tickets, if anything at all. Words alone cannot describe how inept she is in the application of the law. Fellow Las Vegans, be concerned.

Its funny that most of the folks that take the time to rate judges on here are the ones that didnt earn judgement in their favor. People that think they should have things their way or no way. These are the people that make family courts a necessity.

This Judge is belligerent and self righteous. She obviously does not read the motions before her. She contradicts her own decisions from one hearing to the next. God help you if you present her with a transcript… she goes nuts when presented with the facts. She has waffled her position more than once on a moderately straight forward dispute and as a result, we’ve had four hearings and no decisions. No wonder the RJ found her to be the lowest rated Family Court judge currently serving.

She is a fair judge in my humble opinion. I am the other litigant in one of the before mentioned comments. The 24 yr old from Texas. I am the father in this case and the comment beforehand is obviously one sided. There is alot of detail missing. With that said, judge pomeranze has put my feet to the coals as well. She is stern but fair bottomline. We have only been in front of her twice, but there will be no crap in her court from either party or attorney. One had better be prepaired and follow all procedures.

One sided, She should not be on the bench, I am a single father of two little girls and I would do and doing everything I can for my girls, she does not look out for best interests of the children, she laughed in my face and took their mothers side, she has issues of her own and needs to definitely be evaluated, we need a judge that takes the responsibility of doing what is right , not some crazed lady with her own issues, we need a good judge with real concerns for the family and what is right ,

She ordered a 24 yr old with a one year old infant to return from family in Texas, to leave her full-time job, childcare, and home,and to return the child to Clark County in 7 days so that the boyfriend living with his mother (a traveling nurse - they're from Texas as well)can have visitation rights the 1st & 3rd weekend of each month. She has no car, and now no income, and no where to live. This judge has no good judgement at all seeing she did not even hear the entire case, and started using the "F" word in court when she got angry ( a habitual pattern from my research). She made a judgement that was NOT in the best interest of the child, only that of jurisdiction and of her own interests.
She should be disbarded.

This woman should not be ruling in any family issues. She is rude,and one sided . She allowed a known offender of domestic violence not only to my kids but to me as well to grant his custody and I didn't do a thing wrong. He is bipolar with a temperament that is truly freighting. He does not work and just by me saying that I was going to call his father, he wet is pants he was so scared. She needs to be thrown off the bench and arrested. How many more children is this judicial system screwing up because of her cold heart and absolutely no compassion. I pray for any and all of you whoever has to face that obnoxious monster in court. and to condone allowing a man to keep 2 kids hostage for 9 months is just inhumane and the only way i was allowed to see them is by his supervision. I had all reports. Domestic violence, character witnesses and even a lawyer. And she didn't care. At lease not about the well being of my precious boys who might I add, I am not allowed to see again because he doesn't want to let me. I have to find out their well being by their guidance counselor at school. Its heart breaking. Someone , If you can, please help me. I am heartbroken without my twins.

This Judge will not read the motions before her. She will not let people have their say regarding whats going on. She is very Pro Mother especially being a single mother herself she gives mothers chance after chance while will nail fathers to the wall. I really find it hard to beleive she is impartial.
