Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4967
Rating:2.0
Comments:
I agree with the negative comments previously posted. Before I started dinging her, I found her to be frequently rude and demeaning to counsel, and lacking important knowledge both as to the law and as to the practical effect of her rulings. She doesn't seem to understand or care about the demands upon civil litigators. Her court clerk is just as bad. She is to be avoided.

She is a horrid, pompous judge, who should be avoided.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4891
Rating:1.8
Comments:
She picks a favorite early in any case and then stays with them, doing everything that party asks of her. She is generally lacking in intellect, and short-tempered, which must be the worst combo of traits that a judge could have.

Comments:
This judge is driven by emotion; forget the facts.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4682
Rating:3.3
Comments:
Female lawyers should beware Judge Andler. She is obnoxious to women in general, and seems to be often opposed to whatever they have said in court (which is curious for a female judge). Furthermore, she is highly likely to rule for the most politically connected litigant -- to the point that it appears that she is trying for higher office, or maybe for a JAMs position where the richest litigant is the best client. Solo practitioners should ding her.

Comments:
This judge not only accused me of not knowing the California Rules of Court, when in fact she was unaware of the rule in question, but did so in a rude and demeaning manner.
