Does anyone know what it takes to have a family court judge removed, in Will County?

There is a judge who is rude to everyone! She treats people like they are nothing. This includes the victims who are in front of her.

She has no compassion for the victims. She does not have the right demeanor for the job. Why would you treat victims, like they are criminals?

No wonder they don't allow video camera's in the court room. If anyone of importance, saw her in action.....wow!

She truly needs to be put under the microscope.

It's not a matter of being honest, it is a matter of her having no compassion for victims. She treats the victims like they are criminals.

i dont think its as much that shes a bad judge its she has been in that position for way too long and has gotten immune to her surroundings . most of the people she deals with do it with out council , if you have a lawyer representing you your at a disadvantage she dosnt show any respect toward lawyers in her court,
we had a family matter with my dad and were trying to get him some help before he kills someone but she refused to listen to us but instead issued a op against myself and family ,thinking this would solve the problem. it did not ! back to court for a forth time to get the op kicked . this she did after presenting many witnesses and spending thousands of dollars and in the end she still refuses to get him any help

She shows no compassion for the victims. She treats people like they are cattle.

I agree, she is immune to what is going on. She is desensitized that victims such as your family, and I have been through.

The victims are not the criminals. They are their for her help, not her attitude. When she makes someone sit down because they are nervous, or she gets impatient with them and then makes them wait until the next session, what kind of compassion is that.

One day she will be in a position where she needs help, for whatever reason. May it be a Doctor, mechanic, so forth.

Karma will get her someday. In the meantime, I hope people start looking at her for the monster she has become.

Yes she should be impartial, not get emotionally involved....but she needs to show some sort of human emotion.

It takes a lot of money, time and effort to have a judge removed. Likely they won't be removed, but suspended.

5 family members of mine kidnapped my child. He was missing for nearly 7 days. They didn't return more than 250 phone calls even ONE time! EVERY law enforcement agency you can think of was involved. We FINALLY got him back. My son was in HORRIFYING mental condition, had been convinced we all hated him, didn't love him, didn't want him, weren't even looking for him. He flew into a rage against me for almost 2 hours! EVEN threatening to kill me. FINALLY I got him calmed down and he told me he had been taken to see a judge that day and that she was "really mean" and even told him to "shutup". He said that everything he said was turned around to use against me. She denied their EPO and set a hearing for this week.

AS a result of the kidnapping, I was told to try and get an EPO against the family involved to protect myself and my child. She literally SCREAMED at me in the court. She told me flat out "I don't like YOU, I don't like your FATHER and I don't like THIS CASE!" She bound my EPO request over to the same hearing date as my fathers. I told her before I left the courtroom that she had better Pray to GOD nothing happened to my child bc she REFUSED to protect him. They ordered a CPS investigation. I've been cleared AGAIN!(my father has called CPS on me SEVEN TIMES!!!!) and I have been cleared EVERY SINGLE TIME! This is a man that beat me growing up, is best friends with my molestor to this day, verbally abused me and has had restraining orders put on him by OTHER PEOPLE!

HOW can a judge be so cold and heartless? I worked in the juvenile courts for YEARS and our judges would have been SPANKED IMMEDIATELY if they behaved that way!

On a FANTASTIC NOTE: she retired as of 31 Dec 2011. It just WASN'T SOON ENOUGH!!!! Praying her replacement isn't an ass like she was...

Don't sound like the pigs did much for you either, leaving your kid out there for 7 days! Probably in it with the judge.

You generally cannot remove your judge at this point unless you can show she/he is truly biased against you. Also, the American Bar Association cannot do anything.

That's a shame, she must have changed. She was my judge for a DUI in 2005 and was nothing but fair and courteous.

You know she was my judge in a two day trial where my ex had accused me of pushing her... a very serious domestic violence charge and one that was completely bogus... she was fair and impartial and her experience as the 'mental health' judge for the county gave her a lot of insight into my ex. That's only my experience with her... but that said... I wouldn't want to be a judge... I've seen the bs that gets thrown their way... how in the heck they can judge these cases sometimes eludes my understanding entirely.

What about the judge that was using county computer for looking at porn? He had been the judge in a case with my ex and after a few thousand dollars into it he was removed. Had to go through all over again with new judge. Why should I have to suffer with those legal fees wasted?

County, maybe you and your ex should just learn to get along. That is your problem- not the judge.

No, crazy. It isn't poorly thought out. On the contrary, it is very well thought out. Plenty of people, married and not married, break up and know how to be civil toward one another. In nine cases out of ten, incivility isa mutual achievement. If you want to keep going to court over petty things, and possibly pay lawyers thousands of dollars, be my guest. Make a bigger effort to be reasonable and convince your ex to do the same and you will save your money, aggravation, and emotional pain. My guess is that everything you did to put yourself in the position you are in was not very well thought out.
