What others have said about Hon. Jerri G. Potts



Comment #: WA857
I would rate this commissioner a zero if it would allow it. This commissioner repeatedly make the most ridiculous decisions. Not to mention myself and others (proffessionals)think that there is some sort of conflict of interest with the opposing lawyer. She goes against the wishes of a G.A.L.,S.W., the AG, and the childs counselor. And continually sends a small child to see her abuser. The abuser had a restraining order not to see the child for a year. This lousy commissioner made it to where the child must visit her abuser anyway. I wish somebody would have the sense and decency to disbar this woman.


Comment #: WA856
Commissioner Potts is extremely inept making decisions pertaining to families. She expresses POOR judgement, and being a judge, I would expect unbiased judgements. This woman should be kicked off the bench as incompetent.

Allowing unsupervised visits by a mother who committed felony assault on her child. Child is being bitten by bedbugs and this Commissioner won't change anything because it would make her original ruling look bad, the child pays the price.


Comment #: WA834
I have been in frount of Her a few times and from my experience she is all about men. My ex legally abanded the kids 7 times over and she still wanted to give them to him. The only reason I got them is because he couldn't pull his head out of his a** but this time he admits he has been to busy and now she is going to give them to my ex. She has no back bone and only Go's for what the city generals office wants

Astounding inability to understand the law. Found domestic violence but ordered the victim to leave her own dwelling.
Worse than a coin flip.


Comment #: WA314
Commissioner Potts is not unbiased, when it comes to men before her. Very pro Women!!! Should not be allowed to perform her duties. Big dis service to Benton & Franklin Counties. Both counties should be embarrassed & ashamed the she represents them!

Jerri G. Potts, as a Superior Court Commissioner in Franklin County, ruled that there is no evidence of a crime after refusing to look at a video evidence of a crime.
