Judge Laycock was reported saying that, "If as a woman, I treat women differently who appear in front of me, then I'm a failure as a judge."
(article reported in Deseret News,
Female judges reflect change in attitudes)

Well I have witnessed that she is beyond bias in the court room. In my opinion, she does favor women, which in her very own words equals a failed judge.

One story among many... she ordered a father, (who was cheated on by his wife and thrown out) to pay a settlement of alimony on properties never sold, equaling amounts far beyond reach with devastating results. She also makes remarks to men in court who make a higher living than her.

Come on Utah County, we deserve better Judges with strong character, who can prove worthy of "wisdom for all" persons and who can show remarkable compassion with best results.

Maybe Laycocks time spent serving women in undesirable circumstances has created harsh feelings amongst all men in general.

Wishing betterment and fairness upon people,

-A concerned citizen, who by the way is a female

Judge Claudia Laycock is a good judge. She sometimes makes sarcastic remarks that need not be made. She is a professional and well-read judge with lots of life experience. I think, however, that she doesn't like men, especially young men.

Judge Laycock is more interested in playing little power games that feed her ego than she is about justice or public safety. Her behavior in the courtroom is frequently unprofessional and her performance in general is a disgrace to the criminal justice system.

She knows nothing about civil litigation, but at least she jumps to silly conclusions based on urban legends while ignoring statutes and fundamental legal principles. So she's got that going for her --- which is nice.

Judge Laycock makes extrajudicial comments on the bench that do not need to be made. She needs to be more respectful to others and sometimes displays arrogance. She should resist making extra comments that can be hurtful to people. She is smart, but her temperament needs to improve.
