The Honorable Judge Maria Arias is not honorable. She likes to go with what is in fashion regardless of truth; sexual abuse is a very fashionable accusation today. Too bad too many times it is fake, and spiteful. Judge Arias rules in favor of a liar every time in the case I am watching. Her courtroom may tip over one day and fall out of the courthouse- it is so one sided! She should go back to teaching law, and leave cases to other judges. One example of her blindness is the fact that the accuser claimed defecation problems due to sexual abuse in the anal area and judge Arias did not even request a forensic examination. Just took it as truth- no questions asked! Two years after the fact! Makes one wonder about her and at the same time makes one want to scream at the injustice of her courtroom. Don't go into her courtroom in if you can avoid it. Innocent people- beware.

In all her cases, she sides with her appointees, particularly the corrupt, taxpayer-funded Children’s Law Center. In numerous cases, Arias denies parents due process by imposing a parenting plan, without a hearing, and setting a trial at least 12 months in the future. She makes arbitrary rulings such as punishing parents for taking vacations with their children.
