What others have said about Hon. Jerome S. Hennigan



Comment #: TX195
Jerry Hennigan is no better than Beth Polous (whom he appointed as Associate Judge). Judge Hennigan, often calling litigants names from the bench, literally laughing about the abuse of a woman, treating witnesses with disrespect, and unwilling to hear blatant evidence harmful to a child, having conversations with attorneys and judges about cases over a Cold Coors Light, should be removed. Judge Hennigan, just like his appointed Associate Judge, runs a kangaroo court. He should be ashamed of the way he treats people in his courtroom and I hope that if he runs for re-election, that people come out in droves to testify to the public about his outlandish behavior in the court room.

Please, everyone who experiences Judge Polous or Jerry Hennigan and their biases against women and their disrespect for law please file a complaint with the Texas Commission of Judicial Conduct. These two judges must be brought to justice before they hurt more families.
