Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2687
This Judge has no ability to be impartial. She doesn't know the facts of the cases before her. Her decisions are unfair and clearly biased.

This judge is a horrible human being! First, she needs to be a human being, and second, she is only in this profession to exercise her power to be unfair to all men. I don't know what a man has done to this lady, but this lady is out to get all men. I am not sure who placed her in Family Court.


Comment #: NJ1445
She is a horrible human being, and a very dishonest judge. She lied and said that I was in court with my attorney on a day that I was never in her courtroom. She would not allow discovery in a divorce case. She said, quote: "you had your chance." I explained that my first attorney never got me discovery, and that is why I complained and sent a fax. She said: "You are not allowed to fax me when you have an attorney." I said: "Then how do I get discovery?" She said: "Your attorney is supposed to do that." I said: "Well, he didn't! You never addressed it with him when I complained to you. Now he is gone and I have a new attorney. Can I get discovery?" She said no. She is a crazy judge, so be careful. She is also anti-man with a passion, and loves to state that if you contact someone, that is considered harassment. I asked the judge, "How can I settle my divorce if I can't contact the other party?" She didn't respond. She is a crazy judge, with very limited brains. She doesn't read the case at all, and doesn't even know the law. She tells me: "I can sell your house in San Diego." I explain to her that it is a pre-marital asset, and my ex-wife doesn't want it sold, and why would you tell me that you can sell it?" Her response: "I have the power to sell your house and divide it any way I want. Are you familiar with the law?" How do you respond to this kind of judge? If this judge has never been married and has no kids, how is she in Family Court deciding divorce cases involving kids? She is an out-of-control judge that is only in this for the power. Please be careful if you get this judge!
