What others have said about Hon. Michael Adler


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OR176
I consider Judge Adler to be insane. I had a felon who was stalking me bring a false charge of "civil stalking" against me. This is common in so called "liberal" districts. Because she is female and I am male, judge Adler ruled against me. Her attorney essentially chose Adler by writing a letter, not to the court, but to Adler directly prior to the hearing. She was forced to admit several episodes of stalking me/coming to my home with other men, once with loaded guns! I was found to have sent her some emails one year prior telling her how crazy she was and from this Adler ruled I was a "civil stalker". Had I not been there I would not have believed it. The local attorneys were all afraid to bring up the clear prejudice in this case including the opposing lawyer essentially choosing Adler for this case. Clearly Adler always rules against males in these cases. It's not only his clear prejudice that makes me believe he is insane. His actions throughout the two day trial were bizarre and he clearly had inappropriate contact with the opposing attorney.

Very pro-prosecution; in civil cases, picks the attorney he likes and structures his decisions towards that attorney's client.
