Complaint Review: Judge Mark Scurti - Baltimore Maryland
Judge Mark Scurti Mark Scurti Prevented me from using my evidence. He was familiar with the other lawyer. He obstructed justice. Baltimore Maryland
BEWARE OF THIS JUDGE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT APPEAR BEFORE THIS JUDGE IF YOU WANT A FAIR TRIAL. HE REFUSED TO USE MY EVIDENCE, EVEN THE PHOTOGRAPHS I PRESENTED TO HIM. HE WOULD NOT EVEN RETURN THEM TO ME. ANYWHERE ELSE BESIDES THE DISTRICT COURT IN BALTIMORE CITY. THIS WOULD BE CONSIDERED STEALING!
PLEASE READ MY FOLLOWING LETTER TO HIM. OF COURSE I DID NOT RECEIVE A REPLY.
SCURTI IS RUDE AND ARROGANT, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY UNFAIR. WITHOUT A LAWYER YOU CANNOT WIN! THERE APPEARS TO BE NO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR UNETHICAL CONDUCT BY THE JUDGES IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF MARYLAND, PARTICULARLY IN BALTIMORE CITY. HOPEFULLY MY EFFORTS WILL ALERT THE PUBLIC, AND RESULT IN JUSTICE AND FAIR TRIALS, NOT A RESULT BASED ON THE WHIM OF A JUDGE, NOR HIS OR HER FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILIARITY WITH AN ATTORNEY.

Dear Judge Scurti:
You should be ashamed of yourself! Judges are supposed to act in an impartial way. You did not.
My complaint was originally scheduled to be heard in the District Court of Baltimore County. Without my knowledge, Ms. Britton, the Geico attorney changed the venue to Baltimore City. She was smart to do so.
It is a common perception that without a lawyer, a person cannot expect to get a fair trial in Baltimore City. My adversary was not just the defendant who never spoke in the trial, but his attorney as well. Ms. Britton is well known to your court.
She said nothing at trial that I had not already said. You said I could not ask her questions about her client’s statements to Geico, yet the Geico attorney was allowed to question me about my statements to Geico.
Initially I gave you photographs of my damages. You refused to even look at them, and directed me to give them to the clerk. I knew immediately that my case was lost before it began. I had still hoped that my case would be tried on a level playing field. It was not. I believe you said my photographs would be returned to me. My photographs were not returned. When you keep another person’s possessions without their permission that is stealing.
Your instructions to me stated that I could not refer to Geico, nor present my letters as evidence. You did not allow me to present to the court my letters from Geico dated 12/21/18 and 2/28/19, both of which clearly indicated that the defendant’s admitted he was parked in the intersection.
As I mentioned in the court he clearly violated Maryland Transportation Rule 21-1003 (d) which states “a person may not stop and park in an intersection.” How can the defendant t-bone and broadside my car and not be responsible? You ignored my reference to this rule, and refused to act on it.
You did not allow me to question my adversary because I couldn’t talk about Geico. Never once did you ever ask either me or the defendant, or his lawyer questions about the accident. You never questioned me about the diagram I presented to the court. You never looked at the photographs. You did not care what I said, and refused my evidence. Your decision was made before I ever spoke. No wonder Ms. Britton was so confident before our 15 minute trial. It was all preordained.
How dare you chastise and humiliate me in court by stating I did not having evidence. Without using the Geico letters, I could not prove the defendant either drove through the stop sign, or violated the law by parking in the intersection.
You knew this. You did not care. You would not allow me to use the evidence I had. I remind you that both the defendant and I are both clients of Geico. I also remind you that Ms. Britton was appointed by Geico, and she was allowed to ask me questions regarding my initial complaint to Geico, yet I could not discuss Geico. Your actions discriminated against me. My case was lost before I even spoke.
As you know, it is not necessary to pay for an attorney in a small claims court. Apparently in your court he or she with a lawyer automatically wins, particularly if it is a corporate attorney.
In our judicial system you should be part of the solution. Instead you a part of the problem. Try dealing with people with integrity and ethics. It’s pitiful the way you have treated me. I did not receive a fair and impartial trial from you. It was preordained and a farce. Please refund my $44 wasted court fees.
