Judge Walke. This is Billy and Ellen Armstrong. Parents of Matthew Armstrong. He is at First Step now. He is happy. Working a job. We stay in contact. We send him care packages. He shows happiness now, not hopelessness. All thanks to you. We are grateful to you for making a right decision. Our vision for Matthew is that this will all be behind him and he will go on to be a productive citizen. Thanks Judge Walke

After having several cases before Judge Walke I agree with the previous attorney who said the judge has an anger problem.

I've watched him yell at several attorneys and litigants, threaten them with arrest, etc...when they were merely annoying him, not committing any action that would justify contempt of court or being yelled at. Have watched him belittle and insult litigants for no apparent reason, and deciding cases emotionally -- ruling against a party he was annoyed with -- instead of on the merits.

Also agree with previous litigant who said the judge does not always apply civil law as he should, or understand complex cases.

Pays no attention to civil law procedures. Completely ignored established procedure in my case.

Inclusion of Judge Walke on the list of bad judges is entirely unjustified. He is one of the best on the bench.

Obvious anger problem. Does not possess the temperament and patience required for the bench.


Comment #: OK588
I have sat in his courtroom and observed. He is fair and does his best to give both parties unbiased treatment. He is compassionate and listenes with concern. I do feel he is one of the better judges I have observed.
