I just witnessed Judge Seymour ourseer a case known as the trial of the Three Hebrew Boys. Before this trial, I had the understanding that Judge Seymour was fair. However, based upon my personal observations, I watched Judge Seymour preside over the most unfair trial that I have seen in 20 years. On a crucial ruling involving an expert witness, Judge Seymour ruled for the Defendants initially then changed her decisions when the prosecutors whinned without ceasing. This decision was properly the pivotal point in the trial. I am very disappointment in the way Judge Seymour hanlded this trial.

Judge's career clerk is emotionally unstable.
