What others have said about Hon. Tom Newby



Comment #: OK1187
This judge is unethical, unfair, biased, opinionated, corrupt and mean. Most likely he probably should recuse himself from some hearings. He demonstrates the opposite with those attorneys (and/or their clients) that he likes. The reason is unknown, but makes one suspiciously wonder what's in it for him to show such favoritism to one party?

Concerning our first hearing, Judge Newby was nearly 20 minutes late. Sadly, during the entire process his demeanor was blatantly biased, opinionated, arrogant, mean and curt. His tone and attitude were condescending and borderline hostile, judging by the way he spoke to our attorney and based on the inflammatory comments that he made about all parties. (Noticeably, his behavior was gentler towards the other attorney.)

Knows and follows the law. Doesn't play corfield equity.
