A few examples of some hilariously bad judges. But not before mentioning a potentially deadly one.
NJ: Misogyny, thy name is: Judge Paul Escandon. Awards custody to self-confessed killer.
After Appellate court reverses, impoverishes mom, although her former husband makes 500k a year.
Sometimes the women are exceptionally clueless. Consider, Arizona's Coconino County Superior Court Judge Jacqueline Hatc
AZ: Judge Jacqueline Hatch, (a Republican appointee of Gov. Jan Brewer.)
At sentencing of an off-duty DPS officer after he walked up behind a woman at a Flagstaff bar, and put his hands up her dress to grope her, Judge Hatch told the victim, "Well, it never would have happened if you hadn't been there."
Duh. These people would likely vote for North Dakota's Rick Berg; who wants to criminalize abortion, and sentence women to life in prison if they are convicted of obtaining an abortion. (This most invasive form of government is courtesy of the party which claims it wants less government.)
CO: Judge Mary Celeste
Denver judge Mary Celeste was not prosecuted for leaving her six year old grand-daughter in the car during the summer. In 2011, Judge Celeste was awarded the Mary Lathrop award. Mary Lathrop first women to open a law office in Colorado, the first woman to argue before the Colorado Supreme Court, the first woman admitted to the United States Supreme Court, and the first woman to join the Colorado and Denver Bar associations. We're thinking Mary just might be turning over in her grave.
Dubuque County District Court's Judge Monica Ackley
An incredible tale of judicial hubris surrounding mountains of evidence of sex abuse, we wonder why the public allows judicial immunity to prevent Judge Ackley from not being charged as an accessory after the fact in the Michael Kozen matter.
Judge Albert Murdoch
who was arrested, having been caught on tape, for rape.
Murdoch joins other judges in this regard, and for the
Update: Judges protect each other. Often with a DA assist.
Murdoch agreed to retire as the Chief Justice of New Mexico's busiest criminal court, and never again run for office, Murdoch will not face disciplinary proceedings. Welcome to America boys and girls.
Judge Patricia Warner
As 74 page complaint - from the State revealed, Judge Warner had been reversed in 27 out of 29 appeals. We believe appellate attorneys in her area were saddened to learn the speed of Judge Warner's sudden retirement - in a cloud of dust. Never mind a violation of 11 codes of conduct for judicial ethics in one case alone. Most of the complaints centered around conflict-of-interests, as it applied to - well, everything. We're not saying Patricia Warner is crooked...we're saying criminal charges wouldn't surprise us.
San Diego County
San Diego Judge Lisa Schall strikes again.
Los Angeles County
Judge Hank Goldberg.
We wonder how long will Judge Goldberg will keep Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller's kids at risk?
Just wondering. We gotta ask? Why would a judge allow himself to be controlled by attorneys for two drug addicts? Goldberg was part of the team that prosecuted O.J. Simpson. Enough said.
It's been ten years and no changes since judicial cronyism was exposed in Marin in a piece titled, "Odor in the Court."
Judge Nancy Pollard
Pollard's a nasty bigot, but also a star-struck one.
When chinless George Peterson from the OC Housewives appeared in front of her, he got everything he wanted.
Judge Peter "Chainsaw" McBrien.
Chainsaw has been charged in criminal court for cutting down a tree that blocked his river view.
He's also been slapped by the CJP for abandoning a trial. In response the Family Law Section of the Sacramento Bar Association nominated him as "Judge of the Year."
That's how it works.
We wonder why anyone bothers writing fiction.
J. David Roper
"I define arrogant."
See how Judge Roper "
Voided" the Court of Appeal order which over-turned his ruling against a mother.
Judge Rhonda Hollander
Yikes! Why did Judge Rhonda Hollander turn herself into a paparazzi aiming for penis popping photos?
St. Tammany Parish
Why did Judge Reginald Badeaux, who hasn't made a second mortgage payment in 16 months, continue on a case when he was friends with one side, including vacationing together? Because the result was a significant loss for the other side. Or, as the Court wrote,
Judge Badeaux, "signed a legally unauthorized order that deprived a mother of her right to visit her child for at least four weeks and that exposed her to the difficulties and cost of overturning the wrongful ruling."
Family Court judge and dead-beat dad,
Judge Tracy Gilbert
See the Child Support section of this site. Number Four. This guy sort of defines justice, Texas style.
Gilbert won a child support case and will not have to pay nearly $200,000 in back child support according to a story by Nancy Flake in The Courier. A DNA test last determined Gilbert is the father of the 18-year-old male, who was the subject in the child support case filed by the mother of the boy.
According to attorneys involved in the case, Gilbert had knowledge of the boy since at least the mid-1990s but had no contact with him and did not pay child support as the boy grew up.
Where to begin?
Will sort out the indicted from the convicted and report back.
The solution to family murders, is GPS with Victim notification.
Unless, one is interested in a continued growing, murder rate.
