Extremely Fair Judge


Comment #: TX622
This judge heard the testimony. He listened attentively, and still ruled to overturn a protective order citing he didn't believe that the accused abuser would commit family violence in the future. I guess several bruises, dozen of 911 calls, and a affirmative finding and criminal guilty plea should be enough to convince Judge Lopez he was wrong.


Comment #: TX573
This judge successfully arranged for a mother to no longer have contact with her daughter who she has raised since birth. Her daughter has mental health issues and is living with her father. The judge ruled that the mother could see her daughter only if the daughter wished. Because the father is very controlling of his daughter he is intimidating her and she has elected to follow his wishes and not have contact with her mother. Had the judge been more sensitive to the situation he would have realized what was going on but instead has made life miserable for both the mother and daughter.
