Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:1.0
Comments:
My experience as the tenant in an illegal conversion case where Judge Shafer acted unethicly by preventing my testimony in the open courtroom - conducted in chambers where she abused me by refusing me, as plaintiff, even three minutes to present my case, and lied in her judge finalment. Shafer is hostil, incompetent and Untrustworthy.

I found the judge to be fair. Attentive, but does not care for long answers. She's extremely observant to the exterior. She seems mild mannered, but will give you a double look if necessary. Wants those in her court to be knowledgable about the law and if not will give ample time to inform, educate or aware yourself.
