Once upon a time I was willing to give Pomeroy the benefit of the doubt because she told a scorned gold digger to pay her own damn attorney fees (blog entry on the gold digger's conflict fueling attorney coming soon in an update to the Axe grinding GAL series). That benefit of the doubt has long since evaporated.
This post by local "Gandalf" over on TABs illustrates why. Entire post with name redacted below:

In this action, the Court of Appeals reversed Judge Pomeroy and ended the
permanancy of an Order of Protection. I have never seen a more abusive use of an
Order of Protection.
The Freemans divorced in 1998, he moved to Kentucky and Missouri then and
has no claimed contact for ten years. A Permanent Order of Protection was
granted at the time. Mr. Freeman, a soldier, then served in Iraq and lost a hand
in combat. Although disabled, he was allowed to stay in the Army if he could gat
a security clearance. He could not because ofthe Order of Protection. He moved
to have the order lifted. His ex objected and Judge Pomeroy denied his
Ms. Robin Freeman pointed to unexplained events that she attributed to Rob,
including: rattling of the windows, doors, and walls of her house; repositioning
of the driver's seat of her car; receiving Rob's mail at her house; reappearance
of missing flower vases; and a hole kicked into her bedroom wall. Robin conceded
that she had never seen Rob do any of these things. But she stated: "I am
terrified of this man.
The Court states: "Rob showed more than the mere passage of time. He showed
a compelling need for lifting the order and a lack of opportunity for contact.
Further, there is no evidence that Rob had hurt his wife or the other children
at anytime. The commissioner did not consider all of the relevant facts and
misapprehended others. Due to these changed circumstances, Robin's current fear
is not reasonable."
Finally, Robin sought attorney fees for a frivolous appeal.
The Court ruled: CONCLUSION: We reverse the denial of the termination of
the order of protection and remand for the entry of an order consistent with
this opinion. We affirm the trial court's decision on attorney fees and deny the
request for attorney fees on appeal.
Incredible, that no allegations were ever proven or documented, no 911
calls, nothing in the original Order of Protection. Here comes the ex, 10 years
later trying to kick down someone she has had no contact with for 10 years to
keep a wounded soldier from staying in the Army. Judge Pomeroy is a disgrace as
a judge and as a human being. Shame on her for joining in an obvious to anyone,
including the Court of Appeals, what was nothing more than a vicious attack, out
of spite, on a wounded veteran.
Judge Pomeroy needs to go. She is clearly biased, bigoted, and unbalanced.
She is clearly a bad judge and a bad person. Disgraceful.
Bang the drum loudly,
PS: Repositioning of the driver's seat of her car????????? An attorney
offered that in open court? Is there no minimum human decency by attorneys?
