What others have said about Hon. Larry D. Shaw



Comment #: OK1702
I stood before this judge two days ago, and I left feeling like the criminal. Judge Shaw was very impolite, failed to look into the case that was presented to him, and showed no interest in the matter. I was there to pursue a protection restraining order against someone who has shown over the years that they are unfit (mentally) and has jeopardized my entire family. Not only was this person present in court under Oklahoma County Jail custody, but they were also a fugitive from another state, which should have caught Shaw's attention, but it did not. This judge would ask a question, and before I could completely answer him he would cut me off with another question. His behavior was unethical and bias. It seemed as if he was checking off some type of question bullet list he had at the time. Seeming bothered and confused, he took his frustration out on myself and the defendant, denying my protection order. Had Judge Shaw took the time to look into the defendants criminal history, not only in the state of Oklahoma, and acknowledged the fact that this person has been arrested in OK for stalking/fugitive reasons, and listened like a real judge should do I believe I would have been granted my request. But now since he failed to do so, my family is now in jeopardy. The defendant is someone with a mental illness, who causes destructive harm to others property, and jeopardizes them with the ways of their lifestyle.
My request was falsely judged by Shaw, and now I have to think of another way to keep my family from this individual.

I just witnessed a case before this judge, it was a VPO hearing, for a VPO that was denied on an emergency basis, so it should have been a 2 minute discussion. Only the plaintiff was allowed to speak and the judge continued the case in order to make a 9 year old child testify. He was unfair, didn't even let the defendant say one word, and exhibited the poorest decision making possible. What animal makes a 9 year old testify??

I have observed Judge Shaw on a few cases and had a case before him (as plaintiff). He was generally soft-spoken and polite to all parties and witnesses, fair in his assessment of the facts, and allowed everyone time to be heard fully. He doesn't suffer fools gladly, however, so be on time and get right to the heart of your case. Answer his questions succinctly and don't talk too much. In the 3 cases I witnessed, he was always fair and correct, IMHO.
