Allowed false evidence to be admitted to a case. Defense was not allowed to defend any of the evidence submitted. Changed the bail from O.R. to $75K based on false information. Even after bail was posted, she held me in a holding cell for 7 hours because she is a vindictive , evil female.
Woman definitely has an inflated spirit of self importance. Biased to the prosecutor. Her court room is NOT a fair court room.
The ratings from fellow professionals in this site, tell exactly how her fellow attorneys feel about her.

An unspeakable horror. Unfit for judicial office. An abject disgrace.

I had my 170.6 prepared months before the case went to Master Trial Calendar.
One time she came out and asked for the whereabouts of an attorney so she could call his case. I respectfully said "Excuse me, your Honor; I believe he is in the lock-up talking to his client." She looked at me and said in a grumpy voice: "I wasn't talking to you." Harumph, Harumph.

She seems terrible. I got her reversed on cruel and unusual punishment grounds, and on remand she sentenced him to 64-life when the DA asked for 50-life.

Given the fact that this judge was a former Los Angeles County District Attorney, it comes as no surprise that she definitely favors the prosecution's side in criminal matters.
