Maricopa Justice Court Have Poorly Trained Judges

01/07/2013

The only requirements to be a judge in a Justice Court is to be 18 and breathing.  No legal education is required or any type of legal testing.  One group, Community Legal Services (CLS), which provide legal services to the poor has issued a report on this lack of training.   They say that Judges are routinely violating the rules of evidence and ethic standards in eviction cases.   The rulings based on bad evidence can lead to financial ruin for some tenants.  CLS has written a letter to the presiding Judge of the Justice courts requesting help.  If you would like a copy of the letter documenting abuses please contact me and I will email it to you.
