Rating:Not Rated
It's no wonder she wasn't re-elected for her position as a judge. She has used her past experience with losing a family member to a drunk driver, and her clout as a judge to not have fair hearings or trials. She often participated in secretive meetings with the prosecution and state without defense involvement, and etc...Happy Retirement!! "Thank God She Can't Destroy Anymore Lives"!


Comment #: OR148
Judge Haslinger's retirement can't come quick enough. She is prone to unprofessional emotional outbursts, doesn't sign judgments for months and does not follow the law. She is a joke, and what she has done to individuals over the years will hopefully come back to get her. Her son was killed by a drunk driver and she never has been able to separate herself from that experience in order to be able to make sound judgments.


Comment #: OR127
This Judge seems generally gullible siding with one side arbitrarily.


Comment #: OR83
Claimed to take "copious" notes during trial, but transcripts proved otherwise. Seemed to decide at beginning of trial in favor of plaintiff DESPITE 90% of testimony to the contrary. Appeal of verdict will prove that she failed big-time. 2-day trial took 5 days, with plaintiff taking up at least 4 of the 5 days. "Time restraints" forced defendant to rush through testimony.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: OR10
Worst criminal judge ever! It should be automatic malpractice for a criminal defense practitioner not to disqualify her. Truly, a prosecutor in a black robe. She will make the DA's arguments for them in a motion hearing. She is an advocate for the prosecution.
