Decent for most cases. Very tied to community and local bias. Not a legal scholar. Will prosecute from bench if ADA isn't doing his job. Generally ok but hates to have authority challenged.

From reading the other comments made about Judge Gibson on the website, it is apparent to me that people just make things up. I know for a fact that Judge Gibson has NEVER been fishing with Autumn Parrish’s dad!! He is a good man and we need A LOT more like him and A LOT less like some of the people commenting on this website.

"judge" Gibson has now violated a large number of citizens' Constitutional rights with the banning of Attorney Perry Newman of Owasso from representing any more clients or filing any more motions in Nowata County District Court in September of 2012. The Constitution of the United States guarantees the right to have legal representation in Court. "judge" Gibson violated the rights of all of Attorney Perry Newmans' current and potential clients' Constitutional rights. Therefore, "judge' Gibson violated his oath of office in which he swore to uphold and obey the laws of the Constitution of the united States of America. Not only should "judge" Gibson be removed from the bench immediately, he should be charged with the high crimes of malfeasance, incompetence, and dereliction of duty and disbarred so that he can never malpractice again. During the Oklahoma State Supreme Court hearing in which he was ordered to attend, "judge" Gibson committed perjury by lying under oath to a representative of the Oklahoma State Supreme Court by stating he did not ban Attorney Perry Newman from practicing law in Nowata County.The official sworn Nowata County District Court transcript clearly states "judge" Gibson did in fact ban Attorney Perry Newman from practicing law in Nowata County. It is too bad this rating system does not have zero as a low rating, because "judge" Gibson is the poster child for judicial misconduct and his Kangaroo Court antics can no longer be tolerated!

This man/want to be Judge, has been fishing with Autumn Parrish's father numerous times. The relationship with her father is the reason she got off with a $2500 bond. Every one of these statements that say it's Gibson's law in his court room are exactly right. He has no regard for State Law, only the way he feels that day. I have been in front of this man a few times and not once has he even looked me in the eyes. In Nowata county it's who you know that depends on your bail/outcome not the crime that was committed.He think's he is the God in Nowata county and maybe he is but what kind of a God is a alcoholic/addict? If you don't believe that statement just ask around about his drug use. Somebody please REMOVE this wanna be God from our Courthouse! That would be true Justice!

Judge Gibson thinks he's god and he doesn't even look the defendents in the face while he makes his rulings. My nephew got a DUI and missed a court date. His attorney told the judge it was his fault because he told him he didn't need to be there and he would take care of the court. Judge Gibson kicked him out of drug court, set his bond at $50,000 and set a court date almost 5 months away. When his attorney asked for a reduction in bond, Gibson asked him if he wanted to go to jail with his client. $50k bond or sit in jail, when manslaughter only gets you $2500.00. What's up with this corrupt court?

Makes the use of inartful language an art form if one was painting a picture of a lie. I agree he runs his court by the book, but it must be a comic book because it certainly isn't a law book.

Carl Gibson, rated the worst Judge in Oklahoma, is shooting for the worst Judge in the United States. On Monday Sept. 10,”Judge” Carl Gibson banned attorney Perry Newman from representing any clients in the Nowata County Okla. Courthouse forever. “Judge” Carl Gibson has done away with the constitution of the United States in the County of Nowata Oklahoma. He has violated his oath of office by failing to obey the laws of the U.S. constitution, and should be removed from the bench and disbarred so that he can’t ever malpractice law again. “Judge” Carl Gibson is under appeal to the Oklahoma Supreme Court for the third time this year. Go for the Gold “Judge” Gibson!

My personal experience with Judge Gibson of intentionally violating my Constitutional rights, and forcing me to have him overturned twice this year, with further appeals to the Oklahoma Supreme Court now in progress against Judge Gibson, leaves me no alternative but to seek the removal of Carl Gibson as Judge in the Nowata County Courthouse.

This man has to go he likes to play judge and d.a. He set a county workers bail at 2500 after she got drunk and killed 3 kids and left the site of the crash. This guy must go, he calls people by nicknames and has a well know drinking problem.When a lawyer gets him over ruled he is now trying to bar the lawyer from his court room what a pice of work.

Judge Gibson is a stern and honest judge, he does not take any playing around in his court room and that is why some lawyers don't like him because they can't run over him. Any time I have been in his court room he has been understanding and fair, giving everyone a chance.

Judge Gibson was leading the witnesses and telling them how to answer questions. No need for the D.A. to attend. He reeked of bias and in no way was the defendants constitutional rights exercised. He has most of his rulings over turned in the SC

A complete disgrace to the bench and to the law. Lazy and arrogant. Displays a complete lack of knowledge of the law. A joke even amoung his contemporaries. The most biased judge I have ever appeared before.Petty and thin skinned. He should be removed immediately.

It was really a waste of time and money to hire an attorney, because Judge Gibson already had his mind made up before hearing the facts. Don't believe me? Read the transcript.
