What others have said about Hon. Ellen Kalama Clark



Comment #: WA1609
Former Judge Ellen Clark is a smooth-talking manipulator and a liar. She cut me off from making statements in court with comments like ‘I read it ‘and ‘So what do you want me to review’. Then she totally ignores the documents and spins her conclusions without any regard to reality. Challenging her made up stories and she becomes more damning but tries to make it look ‘legal’. She makes a mockery of the whole judicial process.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: WA1394
Judge Ellen Clark is the honorable Judge in Spokane County! I have appeared in front of every Judge and Commissioner in the Spokane County Courthouse as a result of the criminal racketeering by Judge Annette S. Plese who has unlawfully helped her "friend" steal my children using the mechanics of our justice system. This Judge is the only Judge who was outraged over the malicious conduct and tried to do the right thing. This is an honorable Judge!
