What others have said about Hon. Barbara Haslinger


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: OR263
Judge Haslinger's biggest fault was getting too involved in each case. She truly tried to do what was best for the people in front of her.


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.

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.
