First the facts 1) she wasn’t a judge before Obama nominated her 2) she’s an “Obama Judge” 3) she was nominated to be first Asian woman Article III Judge 4) when Clinton attempted to nominate her in 2000 she was never approved. 5) use to work in employment law for all the big defense firms

I know everyone wants to like her because people like her identity and her story but in civil matters and emolument law, she favors all the big defense firms, as she was one of them, if you represent the Plaintiff on a contigency fee, you are likely to lose and your client will never be given a fair chance, [Redacted by Editor] - she doesn’t follow black letter law, I have her up on appeal right now. She’s so weak on the law that she overruled herself 2 times in one ruling and didn’t realize that case she used to justify the Dismissal was actually the case that actually doesn’t allow the exact dismissal she invented. She failed to even read the case she cited and it didn’t support the dismissal she made but supported my appeal and when bringing to her attention, she didn’t care that she made serious legal errors. She forced unnecessary appeals and creates so much work 9th Circuit. She’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing , she’s extremely combative and agressive for such a tiny lady. Make your objections and prepare to appeal because she refuses to follow law, you are at th Mercy of her inexperienced law clerks and she gives deference to their rulings. She’s extremely hostile to victims of sex and racial discrimination in the workplace, she’s every employers advocate. Most important thing : She is extremely superficial , she makes biased credibility determinations based on her “feel” of your client and the case, everything is arbitrary and if your client isn’t Mother Teresa but has a meritorious case, Your client is in trouble.

Judge Gee is fair and thoughtful. She is kind and considerate both of her staff and the bar. I had the privilege of assisting her for many years, and would consider it an honor to work directly for her. I think any attorney assigned to a case in front of her would be lucky to have her.

This judge, while a bright and thoughtful jurist, is a terrible person to work for and you should not clerk for her.

Listens to all sides and allows as much time for oral argument as necessary; conscientious on getting her opinions right, can sometimes take a little time to get them; great judicial temperament; very fair.
