Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 35299
`Very poor research and writing skills. Sloppy and lazy in examination of complaints, claims, etc. Easily outraged, and retaliates against parties - especially pro se. Very pro-government. Engages in unauthorized self-research and "takes judicial notice" of disputed facts in documents she dredges up. Needs to be disbarred and removed.

Very good settlement judge. She was objective and was fair and seemed to put pressure on both sides. Didn't end up settling the case but that was about the other side not her. Their attorney and Defendant were MIA for multiple calls and appearances and she was patient at first but then appropriately escalated after that. Ended up in a default and sanctions in our favor, but not right off the bat.
Not sure what all the hate is about, especially where there are just conclusions and not details.

Sacramento deserved better than this. She is clearly unfit and unqualified to handle civil matters.

This woman is flat out stupid in relation to many other fine jurists in this District. She is also petty, nit-picking, and temperamental in all things. Clearly it was more important to appoint the first "openly lesbian" magistrate than it was to go with someone actually qualified and/or competent. Avoid her if you can.

Not who you want to see on the bench

Clearly the most incompetent magistrate in the Eastern District. Has no business presiding over civil matters, and constantly creates problems for litigants appearing in her courtrooms based on her misunderstanding and mis-application of basic legal principles. How she made the bench is a complete mystery to anyone who practices in Sacramento. Pro se inmates have a better grasp of the law.
