Whats up with this Judge? Court sessions are scheduled to BEGIN at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Went to court twice lately with a friend. BOTH times she was LATE! An hour and 10 minutes the first time and 40 minutes the second time. If a person scheduled to be heard is late they are often punished. WHY is HER time more valuable than that of those of us who pay taxes?!?!?!?!?!

Perhaps she had business in her chambers/office that she needed to deal with.

Judges are quite busy individuals. I mean imagine the daily load of cases that go on all day. People who are in court all the time. Just like the complaints about the food stamp office I see here all the time and sometimes hear at work. Why do they schedule me for a certain time and then I have to go sit there for over an hour to be seen?? Also extremely busy people. Not done intentionally, just certain professions keep people tied up alot due to caseloads.

dude, the last person u should start a post about on topix is ANY of the judges. Thats just common sense. You got a complaint, b*tch to your buddy in a more private setting. Not one where the Judge your complaining about can read/see it. She could get p*ssed and take it out on everyone in the courtroom for the next how ever long. Dont f*ck it up for everyone.

To the OP: She is not late. I understand why you would think this. Usually, the prosecutor wants time do pretrial conferences with the attorneys or with the defendants if they are unrepresented. The judge waits in chambers until the pretrials are finished. Either the prosecutor or the bailiff passes the word to the judge and then he or she takes the bench.

I hope this clears up the confusion. We are very blessed to have excellent judges in this county and we should be thankful of that fact.

I thought she was fair and reserved, unlike hart when he was there and he always looked angry and unhappy. I think she does the job in very profesional manner. Also, dont they do video pre-trial with inmates before court starts?

She replaced a judge that left 12/31/06. I don't remember his name. It might have been Olds, too.

The new judge Olds replaced judge Hartless. The problem with him was he was chipper the first 30-45 minutes or so, then he became an ass. So if you were last on the docket, you were screwed. I think it was pretty evident he was likely a smoker.
job well done

She does a good job. I represented myself and she treated me with respect. She went by the law and listened to both sides. Every time I see her in court she is respectfull and polite. She does not act better then you when she sees you in public, she is real and not a phoney. Thanks for your service Judge.

Judge Mangeot is late EVERY time she sits on the bench. I understand a few minutes from timet to time, but she can't seem to run a courtroom in an effective manner at all. And to compound this, she is a biased BITCH! And I have a tape to prove that she is guilty of Ex Parte from the bench and I turned it over to the Kentucky Bar Assoc. on an ethics violation, in hopes she will lose her law lic. for at least six months. That'll teach her to shut her mouth, learn some manners and treat others with respect.

First, a judge is more important than some one who is appearing in court. Judges have EARNED the position they have and deserve respect.
Second, court starts at a certain time, but there may be many cases before yours. The case may be settled in the Judges chanber/office due to a sensitive nature or an agreement between the parties involved.
You are expected to be on time to the courtroom. You are expected to show respect to the court and the court officers.
That is part of being a responcible citizan and member of society.

Judge Kathy Mangeot filled the position left vacant when Judge Thomas Wingate moved from district court to Circuit Court. Chris Olds was elected to fill the vacancy left by former Judge Guy Hart.

As far as court time goes, judges very rarely late. What many don't understand, is that judges are in their chambers most of the day, when they are not in court. Often times while the attorney are doing their pretrial hearings, the Judge is in his/her chamber signing orders, issuing summons and warrants, and signing court dockets. While this may seem trivial to some, it is definitely an intergral part of the daily operations of our court system. They also have special emergency hearings that happen, that they cannot plan for. Since these cases are an emergency-- they take precedent over everyday traffic and misdemeanor cases.

I personally have worked with Judge Mangeot, and found her to be a patient, well-mannered, knowledgable, and genuinely concerned with the cases at hand. This is not to mean that she was a pushover that would crap (excuse my language) off of people that have broken the law. YOu would be amazed that the stories that judges hear. Many people seem to forget that they do this all day. Most of the time, your case is not unique, there have 20 people in the last week with the same scenario and the same excuse.

I also worked with Judge Hart. While certainly more gruff, Judge Hart was definitely fair. He would give the same speech at the beginning of court every single week, and he would stick to his word.

Just because a judge is harsher than you think they should be, does not make them a bad person, or a bad judge. Their job is to JUDGE the people that come in front of them.

If your case does not go as you want it is not the Judges fault, it is your own fault. People are responcible for their own actions.
Judges should be given respect even if you do not like the verdict.
