I've seen Judge Cooper in action and it's not good. I just recently found out she is on the list of Judges that "CLEAR THE BENCH" is trying to vote off the bench.

Judge Cooper is well prepared for her cases and keeps attorneys focused on key points of the case. Some people might not like her rulings but they are always well thought out and have a solid legal basis.

Judge Cooper does not look at evidence. She is biased and not capable of being a fair judge. I can only assume this judge flips a coin.

My case is so unbelievable that I find it hard to believe. I am sending a complaint to the Arizona Commission of Judicial Conduct. However, I don't expect them to do anything about her. She abuses her discretion depending on how she feels, who she likes, and God only knows what other criteria she uses to make a ruling. Her rulings have nothing to do with evidence...I know that for sure.

She is completely biased, and unwilling (or unable) to be impartial.
