What others have said about Hon. Robert G. Haney


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK1198
This guy is a piece of work. He is outrageous in bench trials, and announces his decisions before the evidence is even presented. He berates lawyers who are strong advocates, and absolutely favors insurance companies and banks. He is foul-tempered and openly biased. he is right up there with Judge Seay.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: OK918
Extremely condescending towards lawyers, especially in open court. Bank and insurance lawyers get special treatment. Been on the bench too long, developing a ill temper.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: OK404
Usually rules correctly, but needs to learn to keep his mouth shut instead of interjecting dicta that end up forming the basis for appellate issues. Rather condescending to lawyers, but no visible favoritism towards the local bar.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK400
Very little involvement with this judge, but he has been nice enough to our firm.
