What others have said about Hon. James E. Rulli


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: WA1126
When my son said "Dad I want to live with you," Rulli turned us into felons. Close-minded, inept, destructive, impervious to reason, ignored wife's admitting she suffers stress related illnesse. Let jean Waller lie again as usual. Ignored Stankhe's favorable ruling, ignored report cards, police reports, medical reports and forced son against his will back in other house.
Ignored provocation at my house, I finally lost it. Puts trashed son back in my custody when it predictably fell apart within 7 months. Came after me for judicial intimidation -Judge Poyfair spoke in my defence but my attorney Steven Sowards covers up Rulli's incompetence to jury and insisted I not testify.

This court utterly trashed my kids and I over 8 years of hell in this inquisition, kangaroo court that is unnaccountable, does not enforce the law, and can come after anyone they want. The new America, folks. now, you see it everywhere. They are a disgrace as people and there's no one to turn for help.

Comment #: WA1079
I would agree with the previous comment. He is a gender-biased judge. If you are a male seeking custody or at least fair visitations with your child- forget it. This judge let our son be essentially kidnapped to another state, where we only see him 4 times-a- year. Since then, our son has now been molested by a member of his birth mother's family. Way to go, not-so-Honorable Judge Rulli.


Comment #: WA684
This judge is lazy and gender-biased, and allowed multiple violations of orders without holding a woman in contempt.
