He is a drama producing one sided incompetent Judge. He does not follow the rules and flys off the handle. Embarrassment to Putnam County!!

Comments:
His behavior is appalling. He has wild mood fluctations and treats people very badly. I don't understand how he got elected. He becomes angry quickly if he doesn't like the look on someone's face or if they don't anticipate his every order. I observed him in family court and his rulings were detrimental to the welfare of a young child.

James Reitz doesn't belong on the bench. He doesn't know or follow the law. Every lawyer with whom I've spoken completely agrees with this assessment. He's an embarrassment to Putnam County!
