What others have said about Hon. Rosemary M. Collyer


Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: 23467
Rating:Not Rated
Horrible judge: extremely outcome-driven rulings, anti-Obama Administration, and EXTREMELY pro-company and pro-Wall Street. Poor intellectual grasp of the law; a woman entrenched in the old boys' network. Unimpressive academic credentials. The worst of the GW Bush appointees. I've practiced before her in three separate cases.


Comment #: 23023
Appointed by George W Bush, and she is from Texas.
Her ruling that the House of Rep. can sue regarding the Affordable Care Act ranks with the bottom feeders. Good God, fossilized Republican brains at work.

Very, very pro government. If your case is before her...settle fast.

In litigation between the government and a large company, she seemed to come up with the result she wanted (in favor of the company) and then worked backwards.She got the facts and the law wrong in a ruling. I am a lawyer who works for companies, by the way. Wasn't before her, just interested in the case.

a company loving judge.

Very biased for companies. Representing an employee, good luck. Makes emotional decisions before hearing the evidence and then tries to back fill in her decisions with logical arguments. She should not be sitting on the bench and instead should be out practicing as defense counsel for companies to do bad things.

Despite some of her decisions, Judge Collyer is a remarkable jurist. In the numerous times I have appeared before her, she has always exhibited quality as a jurist. We may disagree on legal issues but that's why we have appellate courts. A lady.

Judge Collyer has shown herself to be well versed in the issues, very, very gracious to counsel and thus far seems to be pretty even-handed in her rulings. I am one of several attorneys in a pending death penalty case and am encouraged by her rulings and demeanor. She really has spent a lot of time to become familiarize herself with all of the issues and has spent a lot of time thinking and considering our arguments.

Judge Colyer is one of the most openly biased judges that I have ever seen. She is pro government in all respects. Neither the rules nor ethical considerations deter her bias or ex parte communications. As for trial, avoid it at all costs.
