If this thread is so stupid, Why are people voting?
I'm sure the answer will be because they're all criminals, but not all those judges do criminal cases. LOL

NIEDRACH is a male chauvinist bastard. Men are given lighter judgements than women. Im not a criminal i have just been in his courtroom and seen it first hand.

having the opportunity to work around them all on a regular basis, I will make a comment. All of them have their pluses and minuses and apparently all have their detractors.

There is only one who suffers from a permanent and terminal case of "Robe-itis". That would be Judge Matthews

I know Jack Niedrach and have for years....He is the best Judge at the Courthouse by far...Fair and even in everything he does...He is also the only Judge of 4 who was elected on merit and not appointed to the position first...I have been the victim of malicious judges in the past, so I know where the writer is coming from...However, Judge Niedrach is not one of them....

Judge J. Bryant Durham is by far the worst judge in Rome, Georgia.

Prior to becoming a Floyd County Superior Court Judge. Durham worked for the law firm of Cox, Byington, Corwin, Neidrach & Durham.

I was a plaintiff in a case, and the defendant had Christopher P. Twyman as their attorney.

Christopher P. Twyman currently works for the same Cox, Byington law firm of Cox, Byington, Brumlow, and Twyman.

Despite the Defendant not having any evidence to prove their case or disprove mine. Judge Durham didn't even listen to the case. I believe there was an extreme bias due to the connection listed above.

@ Guest. There is always a conflict in Rome Courts. They all have worked together in different firms throughout their time as attorneys. Get an attorney from another attorney far from Rome if you have litigation. They all have agendas, some conflicting some not so. Either way, you're screwed in the Rome Circuit, unless you go out of the area for representation.

The honorable judge John Niedrach is the most blatantly dangerous (I believe) for one big reason: he has had total endorsement by every court from the Ga. Appeals up thru the Fed 11th cir. on his establishing the precedent by revoking of a probationer for "failing to admit guilt"; All the high emulated him by ignoring the actual subjects and the SPECIFIC hearing appealed; It appears that he has total immunity from the law or all due process. All the high courts refused to rule on the actual subject of the challenge, denying such by applying their universally unsupported denials to UNRELATED previous cases, not even mentioning the specific due process violations challenged (requirement to admit guilt to acquitted charges, missing a 'counseling session in Marietta while incarcerated on the probation warrant in the Floyd jail). So he has been granted a license to use the Constitution as toilet paper, and this effects every defendant in Ga. who expects due process.

Judge Niedrach even excused the state from responding in a pro se appeal hearing, and argued their case for them, even changing the actual case at bar and ignoring all properly made pro-se objections with no response whatsoever (it's in the transcript). The Appeals court wn't even back their own previous ruling regarding the specific probationer not having to admit guilt ( http://law.justia.com/cases/georgia/court-of-... ) 253 Ga. App. 603, 2002. The good judge revoked the specific probationer in that later challenge specifically for the charge of "failure to admit guilt", despite such being specifically prohibited in that 2002 appeals court case by his attorney's unexploited victory 7 yrs eariler, that he had 'overlooked' informing him of at the time of his original revocation for 'failing to admit guilt'.

The probationer's lawyer htat had won the action for him earlier had actually not informed him of it, and 'overlooked' using his own victory to defeat a revocation for "failing to admit guilt."
He can be found in the case. The judge can do nothing that local lawyers don't allow, which is a common theme. Beware getting a lawyer locally. Respectfully........

Respectfully, you have not a clue. I hope he does not owe you any money. He has no concept of what the constitution or due process means, and he likes to make the state's argument for them. I don't know about women v men sentencing, but I do know about how due process is abused in there, and about how he has no familiarity wiht the law. From my research he was a civil court judge wiht little if any criminal court combat experience (but im open to information on that), but from what i've seen, he has no familiarity with actual state law, and I highly recommend checking the max law on sentencing. Like the rest of the state courts, he has no regard for law or due process as applies to probationers it appears, and is so biased for the state that he tends to make their arguments for them while excusing them from doing so, at least in one case for sure. Next time you see him, how 'bout informing him of the process of dealing with objections, and how to answer them, either yay or nay, but not "sit down."

Respectfully.......

My family has been before this judge several times with all kinds of evidence. There is a person who harrasses us and bashes us on fb and several emails and texts and everytime we go nothing gets done. Hoe is it someone can stalk, harrass and bash and cyber bully people and get away with it and Judge neighdrach does nothing ever. Its a waist of time to even try to get a restraining order or tpo or something done about this person. How is it hes a judge and doesnt do anything about it.
