After 4 years of impeccable service as the City of Akron’s Traffic Court Magistrate – Katarina Cook was fired without just cause on March 13, 2009.

Not long ago an Akron Police Officer, who had been previously taped and aired on the TV show “Speeders”, came to Magistrate Cook and inquired about the possibilities of filming in her court room. This Officer felt that Katarina’s reputation for being fair and experienced would be an effective display of the Justice System at work in the City of Akron.

After careful consideration, Magistrate Cook decided to go forward with the possibility of filming in her court room. She took all the proper measures, followed all policies/procedures, and adhered to all Court rules in regards to this matter. She also received permission from the Presiding Judge, Judge Holcomb to film in her court room.

On March 5, 2009 the film crew was there and ready to begin taping. Magistrate Cook received an order signed by: Judge Annalisa Williams, Judge Kathryn Michael, Judge Orlando Williams, and Judge Stephen Fallis. This order demanded that she terminate all video taping efforts until the project could be reviewed at the monthly Judge’s meeting. Therefore, Magistrate Cook immediately stopped the video taping.

The Judge’s meeting took place on March 10, 2009 – Magistrate Cook was not informed of the time and date of this meeting nor, was she asked to provide any information on this project – Which is puzzling because, without the specific information how could the deciding Judges make a fair and lawful decision?

On March 11, 2009 Magistrate Cook filed a response to the order that she received on March 5, 2009. This response clarified the situation and gave her position in regards to the video taping that would’ve taken place in her court room. This response sited information about the precise rule concerning,“Conditions for Broadcasting and Photographing Court Proceedings.”

Then on March 13, 2009 upon her arrival to work, Magistrate Cook was fired from her job. Majority Rule did not take away Magistrate Cook’s employment and benefits – MOB RULE did!

Magistrate Cook was attempting to put the City of Akron’s Traffic Court on the Media Map as well as bring free publicity to the City of Akron. There were many other positive benefits to filming and airing Akron’s Traffic Court, such as: educating the public on the Court Process, providing a public deterrent for traffic violations, and bringing positive exposure to the City of Akron.

Ok, so here the real deal…..
Judge Annalisa Williams, Judge Kathryn Michael, Judge Orlando Williams, and Judge Stephen Fallis are all Democrats. It appears that these Dem Judges have sour grapes about Magistrate Cook being asked to be on television and not any them. Instead of being supportive and encouraging about a program that would provide a positive light to the Court – These Dem Judges acted out of jealousy and spite. As we all know…. Misery loves company and this was an attempt to pull Magistrate Cook into their misery!

So, if you happen to be looking for “Magistrate Katarina Cook” in Akron’s Traffic Court – just know that she was robbed of her Magistrate’s Seat of 4 years, all because of unfair and out of control Democratic Power. Whoever should replace her does have some very large shoes to fill. Magistrate Cook truly cared about the people and the community.

Magistrate Katarina Cook – You will be greatly missed and we wish you the absolute best!

I hear ya about the typical politics of getting the job and losing the job in the Judicial World. But, "typical politics" would've had her lose her job after the recent election - if it was to be lost..... not just because the Dems felt slighted for not obtaining the spot-light!
It is for sure a major power trip!!
Karma will come around for them soon enough!!

Good riddance to Katerina Cook.
This Judge was not fired for no reason, she was fired because she was not impartial and was treating defendants unfairly and unequally.
A Judge is supposed to treat each case seperatly and not treat any oerson differently because of where they come from.
Do a little digging, it doesnt take much.
Don't oaths mean anything these days?
This is not the sort of person that the court system needs nor is it one that this country is based upon.
"Tough but fair" Cook states.
I agree with that, its a shame she is not fair to all that stand before her.

What Akron needs is a decent person to stand in court not be the ring leader in a kangaroo court.

Oh WOW, really good come back!! You burned me so bad...ah not really.

Seeing as you brought up grammar, maybe you should check your caps use......If only you could have come back with at least something witty or funny or intelligent maybe... Too much to ask for?
Instead we lowered ourselves to your level.

Looks like we are in a battle of the wits... only you came unarmed!

As a former court observer, I saw the most unusual behavior and judgments in Judge Phallis's (sp)court.
