What others have said about Hon. Tammy Bruce


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK1537
Judge Bruce is wildly unpredictable in her alimony/spousal support calculations. Cannot get resolution on motions that should be slam dunks but her docket control problems might stem from poorly thought out rulings. In contentious cases she looks for the "Bad Guy" and is a strong lean towards moms. I agree with previous posts that you better have an attorney she likes. She is susceptible to theatrics and BS.


Comment #: OK1535
Has allowed my husbands motion to modify his child support payments to keep getting postponed for three years. One child age out two years ago and he's still paying for her. Yet she doesn't enforce his parental visitation rights. We file contempt and nothing happens. She's a poor excuse for a judge.


Comment #: OK1508
Horrible control over cases. Seems to allow them to drag out rather than making obvious decisions. Drags them out long enough to allow for cases to be assigned to other judges. The Oklahoma Supreme Court should investigate the Tulsa County court system.

Unpredictable in rulings and preferential towards certain attorneys because she does not know the law herself. I have seen Judge Bruce make some astonishly horrible rulings contrary to evidence. I have seen her look confused and out of control on the bench. Awful docket control and more interested in getting through the day/hearing than actually moving cases towards resolution.


Comment #: OK1433
This Judge is absolutely in the wrong court. From a law suit from an ex-husband of five years (no children) a suit that should have been dismissed, she did not dismiss. Because of the way the divorce decree was worded (words she did not understand) by the mediator and my atty, I have to pay $10,000.00 that I did not owe. Ex. is a con man, he conned the court and she fell for it. I have to pay. If she had a dictionary I am sure she would have dismissed the case. Words: Not assignable or executable. She thought that meant I owed it to him. Because I am retired and no money this has ruined my life.


Comment #: OK1426
This judge is in the wrong court. Unprepared for her cases and biased toward certain attorneys. I do not feel she knows domestic law well and would not want her for a judge.

Judge Bruce is a wonderful addition to the domestic bench. She see bs for what it is and my experience (with 3 different cases) is that she is very objective and does not fall for a bunch of emotional bunk. She is able to see through the vindictiveness that comes with this position... which is amazing.

Horrible docket control; easily frustrated;no practical experience to speak of;learning as she goes along I suppose? I don't want that in a Judge or a Doctor.

She is a superb judge! She listens closely to the evidence, and openly admits if she is unfamiliar with the law in a particular area. Then she will research it and make thoughtful and educated decisions. At this point, she seems to struggle with docket control and scheduling, but she is new to the bench and I have witnessed marked improvement in that area as well. She is a superb judge, with a great judicial demeanor!
