Excellent judge all around. I would rather have her than any of the other judges. Very patient, hard working and intelligent. Her opinions are better than most judges, and the analysis , well developed.

She failed to notify me that she used to work for the same law firm as the Defendant in a Free Press lawsuit case -- Senator Kelly Ayotte. Worse than that my opposing counsel at McLane, Graf were her boss and co-worker, respectively. I am a former Federal litigator so I know better, but Judge Barbadoro blasted me with no legal analysis of my Motion to Recuse and just wrote it was "entirely without merit."

Yah, shoor.

28 ┬žUSC455 Judge Barbadoro should recuse McCafferty for Ayotte/McLane ass'n in free press lawsuit.

She then issued a number of false findings of fact in a TRO hearing that I allegedly posed some kind of threat to Senator Ayotte, what with my big, black camera or something but really I think it is more my big black skin and biting commentary on the feckless nature of Kelly Ayotte's reign as NH AG.
