What others have said about Hon. G. Murray Snow


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 21640
Like many judges, Judge Snow was appointed because of who he knew, not what he knows. He was a lousy lawyer, and is an even worse jurist. Judge Snow is an example of what is wrong with the system in America today.


Comment #: 21197
Apparently this man is an idiot, and he should be removed from his high office. Where is the wisdom in this stupid ruling? "Said the fact that most illegal aliens arrested for identity theft and other crimes are 'Latino' proves racist intent." Even worse, these groups say the case against Sheriff Joe will be used as a precedent to bar enforcement against illegal aliens nationwide.

Awful judge. Intellectually dishonest and makes rulings based on personal bias, not law. Ignores the facts and applies double standards without explanation. This is the conduct of an advocate, not a judge.

Judge Snow is a perfect example of why federal judges should not be appointed for life -- they can and should be subject to removal under appropriate circumstances.

This judge is either ignorant of the law or he knowingly disregards it. He seems to arbitrarily adhere to the rules and his housekeeping is sloppy. This guy is not an impartial judge! Beware!


Comment #: 18178
Having spent a year and half litigating a case with Federal Judge G. Murray Snow, I can state from direct experience that he actively demonstrates bias, favoritism and prejudice. During my case he issued numerous unjust and unreasonable orders which were not based on applicable law or evidence, ignored proper, reasonable and just motions, and refused to explain his improper actions when challenged. He completely ignored proven intentional false pleadings by unethical counsel, set unreasonable and unattainable standards for injunctive relief, ignored applicable Supreme Court and prior circuit rulings, ignored the pleading standard requirements for Federal Court, and ignored (or did not care) how the internet affects business and our day to day lives. His actions and behavior directly ensured the enrichment of the defendants’ counsel (who pocketed an unbelievably excessive amount of money through their false pleadings). He also aided and enabled the Defendants to cause irreparable harm and financial devastation of such an extent my family had no choice but to go bankrupt. He truly represents the worst of what our judicial system has to offer.

Repeatedly fails to abide by the Rule of Law. Demonstrates excessive bias and is extremely prejudical. Demonstrates extreme favoritism. Beware of this judge, if he decides he does not like you he will constantly rule against you and show animosity towards you.


Comment #: 9912
Very unfair, did not review prima facie evidence that defeated summary judgment. Findings of fact were erroneous. He missapplied law and overlooked numerous facts that was supported by evidence.
