What others have said about Hon. Charles R. Snyder



Comment #: WA883
Law means nothing to this man. He will ignore the law for the better story from someone he favors. He has no good heart thought for the one he does not favor. I thought it was a requirement that Judges know and uphold the law of Washington state and our constitution
not so in Whatcom county. They make up their own

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: WA653
I agree with the above comment that Judge Snyder is prejudiced and biased. That is my opinion also. Furthermore, he will select certain facts and make a big deal out of them to support his decision, but he will ignore other more persuasive facts just to make justifying his pre-chosen outcome a little easier for him.

Judge Charles Snyder is prejudiced, biased, and can't keep his facts straight, even after he told us at trial what his notes showed and then we took time on the record to clarify the record and his notes. He's an idiot. See: www.dishonorablejudgesnyder.com.
