Judge Yohn has no understanding of what is happening with social media and the harm that the Internet can do to people. He is not aware that people hide behind their computers and commit crimes. He refers to online harassment as school yard spats! Something that needs to be changed. Jude Yohn uses the word "Frivolous" at other people's expense, who pay thousands upon thousands of dollars to get justice. He also doesn't read all the proof or perhaps he did not understand the proof. In my opinion in my case the defendant played the court system since the defendant has bragged many times in public of his vast knowledge of litigation. I think that it would behoove Judge Yohn to not take any other cases involving online harassment in the future. Judge Yohn presumes to know what people feel who have been attacked in the most vicious ways, when he can't possibly know. Perhaps if one of his children or his wife were attacked in such a way he would have some pull in changing the laws. He has the clout in PA. The Internet it international. If someone in the UK attacks and stalks someone in the US jurisdiction should not matter. If it can reach my home into my life it is the same as if the person were yelling those hateful things to my face. I am sorry but Judge Yohn did not let justice be served and did not allow me a trial by jury which was my right under the 7th amendment. If there was a hearing all of the defendants would have had to tell the truth or perjure themselves. Judge Yohn even ignored the confessions to said harassment. And then we were told we had to settle and we were told we could not sue our attorney. In other words we were cohered by the court in the state of PA. That is not justice, that is keeping the good names of attorneys clean while our names were smeared like common trash. He made my life a living hell even while the lawsuit was going on the defendants still posted vile things online and about Your Honor as well. They said perhaps you would be gay and sympathize, and them went onto post gay judge jokes. I am sorry but my review of Judge Yohn is very below average for the reasons mentioned above

All of his replies in this made no sense and were not at all accurate.

Judge Yohn is extraordinarily balanced and intellectually honest. There are not enough judges like him. It is no surprise that few of his cases have been reversed on appeal,
