Not Fair ,Shows her own personal opinion instead for entering the court room and only looking at evidence, she judges based on personal opinion, I was not in court room but was called by a Camden public attorney and 6 Family members, and stated to get court records and look into her decisions.

Isn't English part of college or law school somewhere along the line? How can you speak like that and still be a judge? A judge should be literate.

Judge Blue was so caring and compassionate. She listened to me when I was forced by my big abusive ex to file for a final restraining order. She was so quick to see his true colors and I'm so thankful to her that I'm finally safe and there is nothing more valuable than that. My life has been so peaceful since. Thank you Judge Blue

I'm guessing the positive comments came from idiots like my ex-wife. We were involved in a custody dispute and ex used a TRO as a tool. Judge Blue commented on my daughter, whom she never met and said that I was a horrible person. Why? Because I'm big, and I sat up in my chair and didn't turn on the tears like the ex. Oh yes, she got her FRO but she lost custody of our daughter. Stick that in your pipe Judge Blue.

Bad judge. Can't keep on schedule and ignores directives and court rules related to scheduling (i.e., taking attorney cases first). Doesn't like to sit through trials and makes up her mind before hearing both sides. I've seen her preempt a defense after deciding plaintiff was credible and not even hearing cross examination.

She is absolutely horrible. Granted my ex a FRO that was complete BS. She (ex) knew I was going for custody and got a TSO. Ex started crying and Blue was sympathetic to her. Ordered me for drug and alcohol counseling even though I don't partake in either. I went for a blood test right after for further evidence. She even took my child to task and never met her. Funny thing is, I got custody and the ex was forced into counseling. FU Blue!

This judge is unwilling to challenge her pre-trial bias by asking any questions, unless they feed her bias. She is willing to publicly ridicule people without evidence based on her opinion of their motivation, ignoring the facts or history of the case. She is obviously new and inexperienced, but that doesn't give her a free pass to misquote the tax code, or even settled family law. Unfortunately, if she makes a mistake, and there were plenty, any appeal filed and won would put me right back in front of her where I am sure she would find a new way to express her bias. I've been in front of four Camden County Family Court judges and never before I stood before her have I felt them to be utterly incompetent. New Jersey suffers another setback to full equality for men as parents. It was a sad realization.

NJ318-324 just stop with the PR spin. Judge Blue should be disbarred. In my case she attempted to change my custody order based on my ex's accusations without so much as asking me ONE question. He had NO proof and she never asked for any. i had police reports showing that my ex was lying and other material. she couldve cared less - literally. if it wasnt for my expert attorney finally challenging her, (mind you, she was in mid-change of the order without asking me or my attorney ONE question) she would have committed yet ANOTHER injustice to an innocent party. Blue had the nerve to question my attorney about my right to respond to the accusations. Think im lying.... email me at lynden.george@gmail.com and i will gladly share the transcript. Blue should immediately be disbarred for her lack of respect of the law AND she should be prosecuted for substituting her "clairvoyance" for law that she took and oath to uphold. Whoever had the bright idea to put her anywhere near a bench needs to be tarred and feathered. Any honest poster who endured watching her incompetently analyze cases would never give a 10 rating unless they benefited from her biases. God forbid the day that they are on the honest end of a court case and have go before that woman as she clearly not a judge.

nj#314's post was my identical experience. It was clear after my second encounter with her that her decisions are made before she even listens to any testimony. If you offer any add'l evidence or documents to support your position she simply brushes it off and refuses to even look at it. She tries to cover up for her inexperience with a phony take charge attitude. CLEARLY A MAN EATER!!!!!!!

My encounter with Judge Blue left me the impression that Justice is available in the cout system when it comes to domestic violence issues. Judge Blue listened to the facts of the case to render a fair and unbiased decision. There should be more Judges on the bench like her!

My encounter with Judge Blue left me with the feeling of great admiration. The way she was impartial when making her decisions showed her drive for justice. She possess the ability to decipher the truth and render her determination once she hears all facts without bias. She was able to use words in conjuction with body language to assist with her judgement. I was more than pleased with how she presided over my case as I was concerned if lies will prevail but when facing Judge Blue, that is definitely not the case.

I found Judge Blue to be intelligent, open minded and non biased. She has a very good understanding of the law and how it should be applied and had the ability to see the truth of the matter. Just because a Judge is new does not mean he/she does not have the ability to understand the law and how th apply it. A new Judge has not had the opportunity to be influenced by other Judges that are biased, etc. Judge Blue's decisions are based on the law, not based on her personal feelings or negative impressions of those that come before her.

I have had the pleasure of observing this Judge off and on for some time now. I was curious about her since she is relativele new. I have found Judge Blue to be very intelligent and motivating. She is in control of her courtroom and does not let the fact that she is relatively new to the bench affect her decisions and demeanor. She appears to be very thorough. My observations have found that she works to find a balance between reality and the law. We need more Judges like her.

This Judge should be removed from the bench. Her decisions must come from a coin toss. She is ruining lives. How many more people in this County have to suffer due to her lack of knowledge of the law.

She makes faulty judgments, takes unreasonable biases against litigants without reviewing the facts and based on her bias, attempts to totally disregard clear cut law and associated procedures. This will surely come to haunt her someday soon, hopefully.

Very disorganized, not knowledgeable of civil litigation, underlying statutes or basic court rules. She frequently misquotes rules,procedural and factual history. She gives the impression that she is "winging" it.

I think she really tries hard, but she clearly doesn't have a lot of civil litigation experience. Perhaps in time she will get better.

Judge Blue is as "thick as a brick." She makes up her mind and no law or fact can change it! Where did she come from?
