Everyone is commenting so much on Judge Griffith...how about Judge Shkane and the way she has been running in her court in the short 2 years she has already been in office!

I heard that she reads books or the newspaper while "presiding" over her cases. What kind of nonsense is that? Anyone been in front of this broad?

She really has no clue what she is doing, her law clerk has to decide many cases for her

No surprise, she was a dud of an attorney...I wouldn't have hired her to break my lease! Most voters are uniformed and too lazy to research candidates qualifications so this is what we get.

Actually Skhane won based on notoriety, not qualification. Pellegrino should have got in last time. He exposed and rooted out corruption on the school board, but always got shut down. He would certainly be a quality judge.

Joan Skane has worked in family court for at least 20 years. She was more qualified than a school board lawyer who doesn't work family court. Use you head stupid.

all i can say is my sister works with a girl that is seperated from her husband w/ 3 children. it's pathetic when getting told that you have to share the residence when taking care of the children. one week the father stays in the hose with the kids, the next week the mom stays in the house with the kids. this is a joke. how would judge shkane like to have to move in and out of her house every other week. i think that one qualification for a judges position should be that they have went through a divorce that involved children. cause til they've actually been through it, don't tell somebody what they should do. especially when they wouldn't want to do this themselves!!! too easy to just sit up on the throne and give out senseless orders!!!!

It's called a BENCH BOOK and every judge has one.

In my experience, she was criminally unprepared and utterly amoral as an attorney. Impossible to deal with, and used to drag cases out forever with pointless court appearances and procedures -- costing the litigants thousands of dollars in legal fees -- only to cave on the morning of trial for exactly what was offered to her client months before.

For that reason, my retainer fee for a case with her on the other side was always *double* the usual.

Doesn't appear anyone's noticed a miraculous spike in performance on the bench. The voters f***ed up but, as is the case with most judicial elections, they knew not what they did.

Just my opinion, and all that.
