What others have said about Hon. Terry H. Bitting



Comment #: OK1668
I agree with most comments on here. Our justice system is failing our children. Seems like this judge (Bitting) overlooked evidence and just handed the child back to his mother. A three year old who's functioning on a 12-18 month old level due to neglect, and has not had insurance or seen a doctor until in my care. I just don't understand our system. She needs to read these reviews or someone in power does.


Comment #: OK1657
This judge made a decision that was unfair, unjust, and based on one-sided information without considering whatsoever any arguments against her ruling. I have definitely lost faith in court proceedings because of this Judge (Bitting). I think she should be removed from office for the powerful decisions without regard for the concerns of those who contest.


Comment #: OK1626
This judge looked at the custody case we had brought and gave little thought to the damning evidence against respondent. Child was living in squalor when we stepped in. Now the child is right back there. I cannot believe Oklahoma laws don't look at the "what ifs" in child safety. This child is exposed a very unhealthy living situation, but since she's not hospitalised over it, it's not considered an emergency. Deplorable.


Comment #: OK1455
Tulsa courts do not provide impartial judges to rule over cases presented to them and Judge Bitting is no exception. She does not make impartial common sense judgements. I agree completely with the comment that about losing all faith in the judicial system.

Tough, but fair and even-handed. Expects much from lawyers that appear in front of her, but returns their hard work with well-reasoned and just results.
