Comment #: 22175
Sellout to big business who should be removed from his seat. He is unfit to judge. The people of Maui and Kauai have voted for protection from GMO testing and harmful chemicals. He sits in Oahu and bans us from protecting our Aina.

Magistrate Kurren is an outstanding jurist and skillful settlement judge, with a practical, commonsense approach to litigation that trial lawyers can truly appreciate. He has a considerate but firm judicial demeanor, and is even-handed and fair to all parties. We are very fortunate to have him on the bench.

Refuses to appear in court to answer criminal charges against him prosecuted by an American citizen. Judge Barry M. Kurren thinks he is above the law, and he displays a profound contempt towards due process, American citizens, and the Constitution of the United States of America by violating his oath of office, by obstructing justice, by trespass on case, and by practicing color of law. He does not deserve any such title as "Honorable" because he is just another crook in a black gown.
