What do you care how much and if and when he sued his daughters? Maybe they should have been sued. Have you got your nose up thier behinds? How do you know this mans business? You don't and that's why you are teed off! You sound to me like you just go around sticking your nose where it does not belong. Remember people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones at another.
Maybe if this Judge in Putnam Co. had been fair from the beginning, then he wouldn't have to be suing his daughters? He ought to file a complaint with the WV Bar Assoc. against his ex-wife's lawyer. She sounds like she is way off base and good friends with this so called corrupt Judge. Yep, throw their butts to the curb! Get rid of all of them.

Doesn't matter how "fair" you all think this judge is ...or has been to you in your situation...nor does it matter how much of a sleeze you think that Hage is. Maybe he is. But what the judge did was scary as hell and I can't believe you people defend him!!!

Just watch the video clip of Watkins going berzerk. THAT and THAT alone is enough to be reason to have Watkins disbarred and locked up in a psychiatric ward for evaluation!!!! He openly threatened Hage, and violated his code of ethics in judicial conduct on the bench!!!

Is this what you people accept as proper judicial conduct????? OMG !!!!! And the fact that the WV Supreme Court disciplinary board didn't strip him of his judicial frocks is more evidence of a corrupt judicial system in the state.

Wonder how long and how much crap this Judge does before the WV Supreme Court takes notice? Are they all blind up there? Lets get rid of the WV supremej Court Judges for they have no idea of what is going on in Putnam Co. or as a matter of fact, in any of our 55 counties. do they think because they are sitting on a 12 year job, they can do as they please. Who is their boss? Vote for Trish Chafin for Supreme Court Judge - she won't take any of their BS. Get rid of Watkins and Steve Canterbury as well.

Judge Watkins is not impartial at all. He does not even let you speak or even look over the evidence fully when its in his hands. I have had a modification in since Nov 2010 and still haven't got a courtdate. I refilled in FEB 2012 a modification still no court date. Everytime I call to see they say its in front of the judge.
I did watch the video of him yelling at Mr. Hage and no matter how you feel about Mr Hage as a professional judge he has no reason to talk to anyone in that manner. I do believe that Putnam Co. does need a new judge. I do hope the Supreme Court does step in and maybe people that are in limbo can get some type of answers.

This "Benchwarmer" seems to me a little more psychotic than the ususal idiots that sit with thier fat truffled up asses in judgment seats of power. This guy who call himself a judge is little more than a worm to me, my suggestion to West Virginia is to get rid of his sorry ass, turn him in to the state and let them deal with him! He has already incrimanated his own self by his own hand! The videos of this guy talking speaks for volumes of nothing but negativity. Lawless Land, free America from Tyrants such as this. We as citzens have the power to remove people like this piece of SCUM! I am Happy that I live in a differnt state, away from such idiocracy!

As far as not getting paper work done on tone finished. He must be trying to get caught up because yesterday I got a letter in the mail from the court house an order from 2010 that I had against my ex sister in law for my niece and nephew saying there wasn't enough info to charge her yet judge Watkins gave me the DVP removed the children from the home they were placed with me for 6 months then their grandmother for 6 months them the dad got them and has had then every since. CPS said they found sperm in my niece where she was molested by the mothers friend how is this not enough info.?? Why am I getting a letter signed by watkins 2 years latter??? I believe he is trying to fix all his screw up's before he goes to court!!!!!!!!

Damage contol in action.

It's fun watching Watkins crash and burn. Much, much more entertaining than the Harrison Lucas and Kim Blair-Caruthers downfalls.
