Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: WA1403
This is by far the worse judge I have ever appeared before. He is beyond words at how biased he is as he sets his mind at the beginning of trial and then ignores evidence that doesn't support the person or issue he chooses. He is rude, hateful, does not follow the laws of this state or the rules of judicial conduct. He should be removed.


Comment #: WA1350
Eric Z Lucas is a racist, he's sexist and to simply put it he's bias. He's power hunger and has no problem yelling "I'm the boss" to councils. The only positive thing about him is he's old and hopefully close to death.

Judge Lucas is smarter than you are and will let you know it. He is a little impatient when attorneys don't answer the questions he asks, but refrains from answering them himself. There are no free passes. Know your facts and know your law. Be prepared for him to spot the inconsistencies in your arguments and to bring them to your attention. He is not infallible, but is also open to reconsidering matters. His decisions seem to be thorough and well reasoned.

I saw this Judge for the 1st time today. I didn't get what I asked for but I got some words of wisdom I can appreciate and he pointed out why I wasn't getting what I was asking for. He offered advice and an objective view I lacked, I liked that. Thanks your Honor.

This guy is a traditional marriage-hating homosexual, so don't expect him to care about your parenting plan. He's more concerned with making sure kids grow up with the idea that babies come from artificial insemination. He must have had a dad who was never there for him. It's a shame that we even allow people like this to be judges. I hope he sees the wrath of God soon.


Comment #: WA668
This judge is worthless. It's a shame that one man can be put in a black robe and decide the fate of children. American families are being destroyed by snakes just like this. I have never seen reverse discrimination as bad as I have seen it on this snake -- and he's a judge, for God's sake. I pray that he is judged severely in this life and the next for his criminal behavior and taking advantage of his position of authority. What comes around, goes around, Judge Lucas!

One word, biased. Pro Se litigants do not stand a chance.
