Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OR338
Rating:1.0
Comments:
Extremely biased. Favors mothers. Biased against men. Did not allow evidence that implicated the mother and/or mother's attorney. Did not read hearing memorandum in advance. Was disrespectful of father even though father has full custody of child and has always prioritized child's interest. Seems to favor certain attorneys. Cares more about fanning her personal ego rather than delivering justice. A travesty of the Oregon justice system. PLEASE RETIRE!

She has no concern for her job at all. She took a domestic abuse victims kids away and placed them with their abuser because victim was "emotionally unstable" after not being allowed time to defend herself against lies accused of her by the perpetrator. This judge is not making judgments based on what is right, rather it seems who she relates with personally.

Retire please!!!! She doesn't read the documents prior to a hearing, complains that someone is taking up her precious time, snaps at people from the bench, tells lawyers to shut up and sit down, makes further victims of the actual victims. If she hates people and her job, like she come off, then she should step aside and allow judges who will actually take the time to listen and understand take her place.

This Judge not only verbally attacked a litigant but she also did not allow for his disability, which he explained immediately upon starting and his need for an assistant. She refused to allow for adjustment. Evidence was not allowed to be presented because the gentleman could not get the words out in time because he didn't understand what was happening and didn't know when to "take a break". The worst Judge I have ever seen and absolutely biased against men!

Of all the things I could say, I will say this one thing, that the judgment today was not based off a grounded fear that her stewardship of power impacts the well being of families and children; rather, it came from some sense that her own wisdom and lofty position can answer a matter. I am ashamed of her.

Prosecutor

Comment #: OR288
Rating:1.5
Comments:
The most inept, indecisive judge I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. The judge further victimized the victim, who had already suffered terribly at the hands of the perpetrator, due to the Judge's inability to enforce her own prior ruling. Unbelievable. This Judge needs to retire, sooner than later, before harming anyone else.

Definitely has some sort of bias. Can't say it's against men tho. This judge took a little girl away from her mother for no reason.

Makes statements about knowing what to do prior to receiving all testimony. Snaps at the attorneys and the lititgants. Biased towards men, in fact has made it very clear in many cases that the father is going to pay, no matter what. Ridiculous judge who's bad behavior in the courtroom should be extricated. Stay far, far away from this woman.

Comments:
Very biased and makes accusations that are not part of the case or have proof behind them. Does not like men or fathers and makes that very clear in her actions and mannerisms toward them. Rude to lawyers and litigants. This is the type of Judge that is perfect for women who know how to take advantage of the system and want to stick it to Dad.

Dumb, stupid, and extremely ignorant. Complete baboon. Does not listen, does not care. Failed in private practice, failing as judge also. Judges like this only care about the power they hold, and the money they make.

Judge Thompson is visibly and palpably grumpy and unfair in her treatment towards men. If there is a woman in a feud with a man, the woman will win, even if the woman has committed fraud and lied to the court. Judge Thompson throws out evidence when a woman is on the hot seat, but will listen to evidence against a man and rule against him. She's unfair, biased and visibly disturbed.

This judge shows a bias against fathers in custody cases. She has no problem moving children out of a stable environment to place them with the mother. It wouldn't matter what the mother does, she will award her custody and then process to publicly chastise the father. Its amazing that she continues to be reelected to the bench.
