What others have said about Hon. Mary E. Roberts


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: WA866
This Judge lacks legal knowledge and common sense and has a bias. She makes a decision based on her impression and litigant's statements that are not supported by the facts or an expert opinion. I don't believe she even reviews the court documents, even she "reviewed everything." She is there to increase litigants' legal fees and collect her own paychecks.


Comment #: WA448
Rubber stamps anything the prosecutor says unless there is a private attorney representing the client. Public defenders get short shrift. Sentences based on color and public perception of racial mix or economics in case of white defendants.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: WA190
Reads mainly the briefs, too lazy to read anything else. Lacks any legal knowledge of the law or interest in learning. Touchy. Just collecting a paycheck.

Terrible, terrible judge. Steers a case and has a nasty personality. Truly at the bottom of the barrel in King County
Superior Court judges.

She is a fake judge. She pretends to be prepared and says she has read everything but has not.
