What others have said about Hon. Michael Boudin



Comment #: 22520
In 2001 I filed a "confidential" Judicial Council complaint with CJ Boudin against a trial judge in NH. I found out a month later that my NJ prosecutor had copies of it. In 2003 I wrote CJ Boudin to ask if he'd leaked my complaint to the NJ prosecutor. On 2/6/03, he wrote me to say that he not only hadn't divulged it, but that he never even received my complaint.
On 3/19/07, under Freedom of Information Act, I obtained US Marshals' logs from Nov.-Dec. '01 documenting numerous faxes CJ Boudin had sent to my NJ prosecutor, asking that she revoke my bail, and disclosing my "confidential" J.C. complaint. Judge Boudin had broken Circuit law and lied to me. Furthermore, he engaged in this secretive, unethical conduct in '01 while presiding over my RI appeals and distorting the issues I raised to ensure my defeat. He is dishonest and untrustworthy.
