Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:2.0
Comments:
Clearly in over her head. Fails to manage her docket. Slow to rule and has trouble grasping complicated arguments. Probably one of the weakest lengths on the Southern District bench.

Comments:
Judge Cooke very often takes the bench late and keeps lawyers sitting around waiting. She also tends to have a short fuse and does not hide her frustrations.

Cuando entras a su sala parece que ya todo esta cuadrado con fiscales y abogados,no toma evidencias en sus manos para verlas con sus propios ojos,pregunta por ellas y con eso es suficiente,no lee cartas de peticion,ni tan siquiera,hace mencion de ellas,no solo manda carneros para su Casa,sino niƱos para la carcel sin compasion,y con la naturalidad del mundo.No tiene madre ,es mas no creo que Dios la haya bendecido con hijos,si los tiene ,no deben estar nada orgullosa de Ella.

She is one of the worst judges I have ever encountered. She has no understanding of or care for the law. She is difficult to engage in a serious discussion. She commits reversibly error half the time she opens her mouth.

WHAT A NIGHTMARE! Jumps to conclusions and rams them home without reading the file or letting one speak more than a few words at a time. Make sure you don't call her "marr-sha." It's "Mar-ceeeeeee-ya!" I'm serious!
