How in the world did the Honorable Carmen Goodman ever get appointed as a Will County judge. She has to be the worst judge I have ever seen. She has no clue about current case law or even what constitutes probable cause. Not to mention that I've seen her hand out biased decisions on a daily basis. Hint: if you are black, you want to be in front of Carmen Goodman. The only judge who speaks in ebonics. Is there any way to recall this unqualified idiot.

Judge Goodman is a fair, unbiased and competent jurist with a heart of gold who was screened by the ill supreme court before her appointment and election. Comments otherwise is an insult to her many years of service and integrity.

Even prior public defenders wonder how she got her position. I was encouraged to file a formal complaint against her.

I agree...I saw her make completely inconsistent sentencing decisions on 2 different Defendants with exactly the same charges. The one with the more serious background was given a much lesser sentence than the person with the better record -- Despite common sense arguments from the lawyer, she dug her heels in and refused to bend.....truly the sign of an ignorant, stubborn, malicious individual who truly has no business on the bench. I was ashamed for our legal system when I saw this complete lack of competence, stubborn power-trip attitude, and overall impatience when being faced with logic that conflicts with her arbitrary ruling. Hard to know exactly where her biases originate from, but it is clear that she has an agenda and people are treated differently in her courtroom. I hope her superiors take notice because it is apalling to see this type of judicial misconduct.

Our only experience with Judge Carmen Goodman was the polar opposite of the thread leader on this subject. She was pleasant, articulate, smooth, and efficient.

We are not Black; we liked her anyway.
