What others have said about Hon. Cheryl Carey



Comment #: WA664
Judge Carey is not suited for complex civil matters. She did not appear to read the briefs before her, and was not very familiar with the law. She adopted the opposing side's position with very little independent thought.


Comment #: WA522
Judge Carey alledgedly tampered with the audio on my court case and completely changed what she said I asked her if she had read my case in full, She ignored me and I asked again before we start this proceeding I want to know if you have read my case in full. Judge Carey told me she had only read my case in part and gave it to her baliff to read and she was not going to bother to go through my exhibits. I have a flesh and blood witness that dropped her mouth due to she was studding to be a paraleagle, then this witness dropped her mouth to the floor again when I had her listen to the audio I ordered from the court. Judge Carey obviously tampered with the audio and now the audio states I have read your case in full, I even measured it with a tape measure. She of course dismissed my case. No justice in her court room. Her court room appears to be a crime scene.

Extremely biased in her decisions. Either does not understand or ignores applicable law. Should not handle civil matters.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: WA4
I have found that arguing bail with this judge is a joke.
