Vernon is the most disrespectful judge in the court system and, in my opinion, and many others apparently, should have no right making decisions that affect other peoples' lives. I'm not sure but the word is she is being investigated for some crime and dons an ankle bracelet. I'd love to know for sure.
When Judge Vernon was DA, she had a habit of handing out "gifts" to her friends like dropping DUI charges, not filing charges to begin with. How the FBI never caught up with her is beyond me. There was the saga of Bill Elias, a well connected, local school teacher (affiliated with Nancy and her husband). When Elias got a DUI, District Attorney Nancy Vernon granted him the gift of getting rid of the charges. It was a huge scandal in the local newspaper. Nevertheless, the wise votors of Fayette County elected this corrupt bitch as a judge. The Honorable Nancy Vermin.... she's a corrupt rat who should be in federal prison herself.
Do not re-elect this Judge. She is up for retention in 2019. She let's personal animosity, bias and dislike (and her personal friendships and political connections) guide her decision-making. It's unfortunate that the voters of Fayette County saw fit to elect this woman.
This woman should not be a judge an I myself am trying to get her disbarred an will not stop till everyone knows how corrupts she is in family court cases she us plain out evil.reporting all reviews to judicial board time to stop her judging forever.
I have been in front of Judge Vernon countless times and find her to be the most knowledgable and compassionate member of our bench. She is prepared, has a thorough understanding of the law and seeks to ensure that justice prevails in her courtroom. She treats both the parties as well as counsel with the utmost kindness. She is a role model for the judiciary.
She allowed two officers to get away with the murder of a 12-year old child stating.
“The issue here is not whether [the officer] saw a weapon,” said Vernon. “But whether there was a potential for there to be a weapon in his pocket. It’s irrelevant that he saw or did not see Michael Ellerbe with a gun in his hand. I’m saying they can’t take that chance.”
This is not the kind of backward thinking we need in our court system.
Best Judge that money can buy, if you're on the right political team or if you are part of her or her husband/politician's inner circle. Dumb, disgusting and disrespectful as a judge, but definitely one of the best politicians in the business.
Here's what you get when you deal with The Honorable Nancy Duffield Vernon. In 2008, State Police Lt. Jeff Shaw was told that the commander of the Uniontown barracks of the State Police may have interfered in a child molestation investigation of the commander's politically connected friend and prominent businessman. Shaw contended the commander repeatedly asked the investigating trooper "how things were looking for 'our boy'" and told the trooper the commander would "lose his golf privileges" at the businessman's luxury resort if he were arrested. The only luxury resort in Fayette County is Nemacolin Woodlands. The state police commander also accepted an $8,000 hunting trip from the businessman's daughter during the molestation investigation.
The trooper who investigated the allegations has testified under oath that Fayette County District Attorney Nancy Vernon declined to prosecute the molestation case. Somebody should check her campaign donations to see how much $$$ Joe Hardy donated to then DA/now Judge Vernon over the years.
When Judge Vernon she had a habit of handing out "gifts" to her friends like dropping DUI charges, not filing charges to begin with. How the GNU never caught up with her is beyond me. There was the saga of Bill Elias, a well connected, local school teacher (affiliated with Nancy and her husband). When Elias got a DUI, District Attorney Nancy Vernon granted him the gift of getting rid of the charges. It was a huge scandal in the local newspaper.

If I could enter 0 stars I would. This judge picks and chooses which facts are facts. Pre-judges based on appearance and her mood that day and goes out of her way to be nasty. Acts like a queen on a throne rather than as a public servant. She needs to be voted out.
Judge Vernon has no heart. She has no brain. And she has no authority when she's not wearing that black robe. She identifies herself as a judge rather than as a human. Without that black robe and the title of "your honor", she is nothing. The people have the power to strip away her authority. In a couple of years, when this witch is up for retention, VOTE NO. Drain the swamp of corruption in the Fayette county judicial system.
Fayette County is a lawless social area, where those in power can get away with anything, because they either are or control the judiciary, the local municipal leaders like mayors, township supervisors, council members, the county commissioners, the District Attorney. The Vernons are at the heart of this corruption and glad handing. It is truly sick, but they pass out favors in exchange for getting re elected over and over.
