Litigant

Comment #: NJ4939
Rating:1.0
Comments:
She uses trickery on criminal defendant's buy not giving them all their court orders and signing orders using the incorrect first name so she can mess with the cases without conflict flags popping up. She was in charge of Grand Juries as one of her duties so she is accountable for how she allows the prosecutors to conduct bogus Grand Jury presentment. She retaliated against defendants that stand up to their sexual abusers instead of punishing the abuser because they work under her vicinage. Very disgusted and disappointed in her poor judgment. She also acts like a bully to staff and family court litigants. I'm quite sure she was forced to retire early. She made many enemies throughout the state. It's a shame they didn't remove her sooner.

There is absolutely NOTHING honorable about this judge. She doesn't follow proper rules of procedures more than likely because she doesn't know them and if she does, she doesn't think any rules apply to her. She retaliates and has no idea what goes on in her courts. She ignores all Conflicts of Interest until they are thrown in her face. SHE NEEDS A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION and so do all JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS IN THE OCEAN COUNTY VICINAGE

The number of complaints against this judge our pro bono team gets is unheard of for any judge anywhere, and our firm is a premier worldwide firm.

I'm shocked the FBI and Attorney General hasn't arrested her.

When we get done, they will.

Worst excuse for a judge as I have seen in over 30 years of practicing law.

Complete disregard for the law and court rules.

I'm shocked she's not in prison for a very long time

Over the years I have watched her carefully, and now I can say for a fact she retaliates against anyone who stands up to her, is a criminal and needs to be in prison.

I've been reading a lot of commentary on her and I agree with all of it. She needs to go

I can not believe she is a judge.

She obnoxious, she retaliates when you stand up to her, she lacks any intelligence, violates the law, court rules, and your Civil Rights.

Complete and total disgrace as a "judge" and a human being

Every time she's around all that comes to mind is the Theme Song to the "Beverly Hillbillies".

Totally useless, comically inept, lacks intelligence at the most basic level, went to some shitty "law" school, total sideshow and an affront to any decent judge.

Political hack and moron

This is very clearly a deeply, deeply DISTURBED individual with no intelligence and is a disgrace to every honest Judge.

She needs to be in prison from what I just witnessed, again.

Goes berserk against anyone who challenges her criminal behavior, The FBI needs to investigate her

I am so tired of seeing her retaliate against anyone who challenges her "Hitlerlike" tiny bit of authority she flaunts like she's somebody. [Redacted by Ed.]

I'm embarrassed to work here, and I did call the AG to investigate her because I've had it with her.

ZERO rating.

Shocking to see how she think violating the law whenever she doesn't like someone is OK, when she's worse than all the criminals I've seen in a decade combined.

Please quit, you don't belong here.

I'm an out of County attorney with a stellar reputation.

I felt I was in a Stalin Era Russia "trial".

She's not fit to be a judge, and I'm filing letting my Congressman know

I can not believe she just ruled in an important case exactly the opposite with the exact same issue 2 weeks later.

She needs to go.

Should not be a judge

I cannot believe she's actually a judge she has no regard for litigants and has little or no grasp of the law or how to be fair.

I'm shocked she's not in prison she does whatever she wants even though it has nothing to do with the law or the facts.

Never dealt with her as a judge but as a County Prosecutor she was very fair. She treated everyone with respect and didn’t look down on anyone.
