"There never was a good knife made from bad steel." – Benjamin Franklin

Likewise, a good judge cannot not be crafted from a bad attorney.

"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people." - Theodore Roosevelt
Melinda Crouch is that government. No allegiance and no responsibility to the truth, justice or her constituents.

Melinda Crouch believes she is not only above the law, that she is the law and can define it, administer it, and supervise it. None of us have a right to do so, only she.

β€œMen occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.” - Winston S. Churchill

A blind man has a better chance of recognizing and acting upon the truth than does Melinda Crouch. She does not care about the truth as the truth is inconvenient and does not fit her not so hidden agenda.

"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." - John Adams

Unfortunately, Melinda Crouch has no interest in either facts or evidence. She allows hearsay, lies and innuendo as a substitute for the facts and evidence as long as it fits her predetermined rulings. Most cases are decided long before any evidence or facts are presented as Melinda Crouch prefers it that way. Destroying families is her only agenda.

"Our safety, our liberty depends on preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts β€” not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution" - Abraham Lincoln

Melinda Crouch has perverted the court system with her elitism, arrogance and destruction of too many families. She needs to be removed from office.

Melinda Crouch is a reasonable, fair judge. Her decisions affect children and their families forever, and she makes the best decision for the protection and well being of the child. We need her to be re-elected.

Melinda Crouch's brand of judicial fascism, blatant bias and personal hubris are poor tools for uncovering a rich truth.

Worst family court judge in the area. A known man hater who doesn't follow the law. Good dads lose their custody simply in order to justify higher child support. Look up how many of her cases are turned over in Appeals Court. She was originally appointed and then ran unopposed. Vote her out in 2014!

Not sure what NC1 is referring to, but Judge Melinda Hayne Crouch has been anything but good towards fathers. (Me, or the other 15 fathers' cases I sat in to watch.)

This judge needs to be thrown off the bench ASAP. After filing complaints with the judicial review board, it is clear that electing someone else is the only way to remove her. She is competing against Duke Lineberry this November, 2014.

This judge has set precedent that it is perfectly fine to call a mother that is a felon and goes around having one night stands with men and alienating the children, and she will defend her to the last breath, despite medical records showing abuse, and many other allegations showing abuse of the system to alienate a child.

Judge Melinda Hayne Crouch supports child alienation in New Hanover County, North Carolina -- plain and simple.

It is of great concern that this judge is reacting to the negative press that she unfairly discriminates against fathers by irrationally giving way too much leeway to fathers who are in contempt, and who do not honor multiple aspects of court orders.
