Judges are immune from suit, they have what is known as absolute immunity. So, no you cannot sue a judge. The better bet is to hire experienced criminal defense counsel to see what can be done for the daughter at this stage, if anything.
R. Jason de Groot, Esq.,
Yu cannot sue a judge for actions taken in the performance of a judges duty
The above is not intended as legal advice. The response does not constitute the creation of an attorney client relationship as this forum does not provide for a confidential communication.
You need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent your child.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
You have no basis to sue the judge. In addition to the fact that judges have immunity from lawsuits for the decisions they make as a judge, there is no basis to sue any state actor for failing to protect a person. Suits against judges, prosecutors, and the police for failing to protect or send help are summarily dismissed.
This is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.
I am a Florida attorney who practices in the areas of personal injury, criminal defense, and civil rights. My answers on Avvo are not legal advice, and they do not create an attorney-client relationship. If you contact me--please understand that I cannot contact you--then I will carefully evaluate your case and determine if I will accept you as a client. Unless you and I sign a contract for legal representation, then I am not your attorney. Furthermore, Avvo is a limited forum and not well-suited for complex legal analysis. You should always obtain competent legal advice from attorneys who will carefully evaluate all your case's facts. Avvo isn't the place for that.
I wish you could. I would. A lot in fact.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
