I recently had a chance to sit in this judge's courtroom in New Bern, North Carolina. I just had to laugh. Her complicated questions and her haughty demeanor are clearly an effort to mask her complete failure to understand what is going on. How do people like this make it to the bench?

I had occasion to sit in Judge Flanagan's court recently. I have never see a more inept judge nor one who has such poor control over her courtroom. A pro se defendant in a criminal terrorism case revealed that Judge Flanagan is unable to deal with difficult situations and has an eye only of how she might get to a higher court. More importantly, it was clear the judge took the bench each day with her own reputation in mind and with an incredible sense of self-importance. Her abuse of the prosecutors was shameful. This judge is an embarrassment.

Judge Flanagan is one of the most self-centered, egotistical and cold judges I have ever met. It is truly all about her own self-importance. For someone who had little to no experience when she came to the bench she certainly acts as if she knows it all. There is no room in her world to admit she doesn't know something.

Smart, hard working, attentive to detail, prepared and responsive. Good judge to have on your civil case regardless of side.
