What others have said about Hon. James K. Singleton


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: 7448
Judge Singleton is best characterized as a Libertarian. His many years as an appellate court judge in the Alaska State System flavor his rulings strongly. Be prepared to debate Cicero, the Magna Carta and the meaning of life before he imposes sentence.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 6506
Unwilling to follow and apply the law if he personally disagrees with it.

Court Staff

Comment #: 2310
Likes to hear himself speak, and indulges himself. Rambling philosphizing, not learned in the law, although he thinks he is. Years on the bench have made him think he actually belonged there in the first place. Unwilling to follow precedent.
