She is utterly shocking when it comes to allowing hearsay in custody and divorce matters.

Judge Budd did right by me or more Correctly, right by my daughter.
Instead of sentencing my daughter to a childhood of foster care, she awaded me, father, sole custody. I cannot thank this woman enough.

Judge Marlene Budd is less than a fair and impartial Judge. I petitioned the court for visitation of my grandchildren and it was apparent that Judge Marlene Budd had already made up her mind about my case before I ever even set foot in her courtroom. She was angry and nasty from the get go. She obviously doesn't have children or grandchildren. Family court needs Judges that can separate their personal issues from what is going on in the courtroom and it's obvious that Marlene Budd can not. Let's not re-elect her in 2016!

I have sat in her court many times she does not follow through in her orders I know she favors woman over men. she comes across as lazy she does not enforce her own orders I can not see how she is still on the bench forget about law she does not follow it If it is not done her way than she will dismiss the case besides she has gone through a divorce and it shows that it has effect her judgement

Let me start by saying , free speech. Marlene Budd is a very disinterested individual. It must come from her background. Feeling displaced, never comes easy. Uncaring and cold . How does Steve tolerate her?? Does not take an ex- spouse and his guns seriously. That in it-self makes me question her ability. Got to love politics.

Marlene budd is the worst unfair, bias judge ever. She is rude, disprespectful and dont deserve to be a judge. She does not give any one a chance to speak or plead there case. She like to take a child from there home and place them in a unsafe enviorment where the child does not want to be. She is very bias and unfair. Regardless if you prove your case she does not want to look at any evidence, she will tell you to shut up and dont speak when you are asked a question.Anyone that has ever went in front of her all say the same thing. She needs to step down and let someone who deserve to be a good fair judge. She doesnt look at your case and do right from wrong she goes by if she is having a good day or not. I can write a book on this lady. She needs to be removed.
