Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 19345
Rating:10.0
Comments:
a very hard-working and dilligent judge who promply rules on consent and other matters even late at night and on weekends - who can be acerbic but fair in her written orders

Comment #: 6942
Rating:2.0
Comments:
In conspiracy cases concerning numerous defendants she becomes predisposed as to an opinion about a defendant based on previous testimony by other defendants with their own agendas. This translates into bias which has no place in her courtroom or any courtroom.

I agree with the comment #1322. Judge Fawsett was a respected trial lawyer before she was appointed, and her experience shows in the courtroom. She has been prepared for almost all hearings and trials that I have attended. She knows the law (for the most part). She has a very good memory and takes copious notes. She can be harsh (if a party or counsel is incompetent, foolish or both), but she doesn't seem to impose more pressure than necessary to stop the offending conduct.
