What others have said about Hon. Timothy G. Farrell



Comment #: NJ676
I have been dealing with this man since March and he has been biased this whole time. He has disregarded the United States supreme court rulings. He has disregarded title 39:3-1 of the New Jersey Motor vehicle code. He has denied all of my motions without providing a full finding of facts and conclusion of law. He denied me my right to Object, and then had me arrested for objecting. This would be in violation of 18 U.S.C. 242 Deprivation of Rights. He is an absolute criminal in my own opinion and has no business being a Judge. Which also according to this case law, among many others I have, he is not acting act as a judge. Judges don't enforce statutes, only executive administrators do.

"When acting to enforce a statute and its subsequent amendments to the present date, the judge of the municipal court is acting as an administrative officer and not in a judicial capacity; courts in administering or enforcing statutes do not act judicially, but merely ministerially". Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 583.

I have tried both civil and criminal cases in front of Judge Farrell. He makes you work hard, however, he makes you work no harder than he himself works. He is always prepared. He reads what you submit, he does his own research, he understands what he reads. He can be somewhat "biting", but he is fair and dishes it out equally to all. He will listen to your arguments and will in fact change his mind if you convince him that his original inclination is wrong. He rewards those who are prepared and those who work hard. On the civil side, he could be a little more involved in settlement efforts.

Judge Farrell is a very bright and energetic jurist. Like his father before him, he is a credit to the bench. He can be a bit biting, abrupt, sarcastic and condescending at times, which leads me to believe that he sometimes forgets that he was once an attorney. I'm sure he would say it's his way of driving the attorneys to get matters trial-ready or settled, but I think it leaves a bad taste in one's mouth for his overall disposition. Otherwise, he is quite fair and impartial.
