Everyone's entitled to a fair trial. That's why we have a jury.

Earlier today Franklin County Municipal Court Judge Amy Salerno berated a jury for coming to the wrong conclusion after they returned a verdict of not guilty in a misdemeanor assault trial. Her speech from the bench prompted at least one juror to burst into tears and another requested an escort home, fearing for her safety after the response from the judge and menacing looks from friends and family of the prosecuting witness. Additionally, the judge had invited other jurors from the jury pool to sit in the courtroom to witness the verdict. After witnessing her tirade the remaining jurors had to be dismissed, causing other trials to be delayed. This is not the first incident of misconduct I have witnessed or heard of in her courtroom but it is by far the worst. Her conduct not only demeans the dignity of the court but undermines the very idea of trial by jury. If you have witnessed any incident in her courtroom please report it to the Ohio Supreme Court at http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/Disciplinary... . I don't know where to start to get this before the media, but at the very least I know that todays incident is being reported to the bar and will be investigated. It may take time, but the system works, eventually.
Amy Salerno is the worst Judge bar none in Franklin County. I had a case a few years ago in front of her dealing with my ex-girlfriend who just completely lied and mis-stated the facts altogether. Never mind she was stealing and abusing state money. Amy Salerno sided with her and granted her a retraining order. It's not like I care but Amy Salerno has to go!
