What others have said about Hon. George W. Butner



Comment #: OK1797
Rating:Not Rated
This Judge did not take the time to read the case. The first day in Court he stated he did not want the case and hoped to not see us again. Went by personal feelings rather than the law.


Comment #: OK1795
Three attorneys represented the defense. Judge’s son went to school with one’s son, he went to school with the other one and the third one offered to donate a golf course to OU if they won the case. He never disclosed that and kept the case after all Cleveland County judges excused themselves. Out of 17 claims made of wrong doing on defendants part, he ruled 100% with defendants. One allowed a for profit company to use private land against owners desire, calling it implied easement?

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK442
Judge Butner has the best temperament and runs a tight courtroom. He is an even-handed judge in all aspects. Easy to talk to and very fair.
