Judge Michael Denning stayed on a case where he personally knew the Plaintiff and the Plaintiff's family and friends!!
He based his decisions on what his friends wanted! Judge Denning does not follow the Judicial Code of Conduct, he feels that the rules don't apply to him. As Americans, we have throughout our history we stood up against corruption, we have made positive changes to our country because we have not remained silent in the face of corruption. As a proud American, I stand up against the comment made by Judge Michael Denning during a court hearing, which he stated "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." To the cowardly response posted by panthriot above which tries to defend Judge Michael Denning's discrimination, my response is you're just as ignorant as him. There is no excuse for discrimination.
Judge Robert Rader, Chief District Court Judge has done nothing to address Judge Michael Denning making this comment in the court. He has ignored the issue and even tried to pretend he didn't know he made the comment. What kind of a Chief District Court Judge tolerates behavior like this??? The discriminatory comment was presented to Judge Rader and he removed Judge Michael Denning off of the case but never addressed his discriminatory comment. No wonder Judge Michael Denning feels he can do whatever he wants.
The Superior Court election is in November. Judge Denning should have already been removed by the appropriate officials as a District Court Judge, yet he has the arrogance to run for Superior Court Judge. Could you imagine how terrible it would be if he becomes a Superior Court Judge? If you're not his personal friend, then the case will be lost. Judge Denning should learn that all discrimination is wrong!! There is no excuse for his discriminatory remark and no excuse for him intentionally staying on a case where there was a clear conflict of interest. Judge Robert Rader should also stop letting his personal friendships with the Judges affect his decisions. He is there to serve the public and not cover up completely inappropriate behavior of the Judges. Judge Robert Rader gets a huge salary and instead of acting in the best interest of the litigants in the court, he instead lets his personal friendships with the Judges affect his decisions. Judge Robert Rader, try standing up for what is Right for once. Judge Robert Rader, think about stepping down as the District Court Judge because you have a Judge, Judge Michael Denning whom made a discriminatory comment during a court hearing. You are completely aware of the comment yet do nothing about it. Shame on you Judge Michael Denning and Judge Robert Rader. The court system focuses on serving the public and not both of you making huge salaries and abusing the litigants of the court.
