Judge Rafael Ovalles of Providence, RI; bullying loser


The state of Rhode Island presented Rafael Ovalles with a law license in 1982 after he graduated from Boston University Law School. 


Former Gov. Lincoln Almond was duped into appointing Rafael as a District Court judge in 2005. Rafael didn’t receive the appointment because he was the most qualified attorney in the Providence area. He received it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


A report by NCB 10 discovered that several ethics complaints have been filed against Judge Ovalles with the Commission on Judicial Tenure and Discipline. (Parker Gavigan) Those complaints of misconduct are as follows:

  • Engages in degrading and inappropriate conduct toward attorneys
  • Berates court employees, clerks and interpreters
  • Belittles people who appear in his court
  • Female clerk said he often removes his pants while he’s in chambers
  • Invites court employees into chambers when his pants are down

All that remains now is to see what, if any punishment is meted out to Judge Ovalles by the cheerleaders for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Rhode Island Supreme Court.


As we speak (ca. May 2015), Rafael continues to sit as a District Court Judge in Providence, Rhode, Island.
