What others have said about Hon. Michael P Gomez


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: TX932
Judge Gomez made so many absurd rulings that he had to reverse himself over and over upon threat of appeal. He could not get the law straight and did not sanction a certain lawyer that brought the same bogus motion 5 times. He allowed the harassment, although he properly denied the motion each time. But it cost the clients unnecessarily and the motion was beyond frivolous - the other side asked for information that would have been a blatant violation of the client's statutory privacy rights. Our briefs were appellate quality, and Judge Gomez clearly had not read a single thing when he finally meandered into court. He needs to go.


Comment #: TX931
Gomez displayed a misogynist mindset in court and was openly hostile toward a female who had done nothing wrong. He has terrible credentials and was apparently elected based on name recognition or the D after his name. He had scant experience, about 4 years out of law school, and once he obtained a judge position, he immediately sought a court of appeal position - a total joke. He has barely gotten re-elected and has received very poor local reviews.

One of the smartest judges --- if not the smartest judge --- on the bench. Bring your "A" game, because the judge is going to bring his.

Comment #: TX14
Very biased in favor of plaintiffs. He seems to have an agenda and it is not to be fair. Has failed to earn the respect of both sides.
