Comments:
This judge is biased against men in general. I sat in on a couple of her family law cases and she always gives it to the mother. She doesn't read the file nor does she even care that the other party did not respond after she gave them multiple chances. She treats fathers like dirt and has made comments saying that she needs to speed the hearing up in order to get to lunch? That does not sound like a judge who is genuinely concerned with the best interest of a child. She won't call witnesses to the stand if it has to do with the father proving his side of the story. I've sat in other judges hearings and she by far is the most biased and rudest of them all. It's unfortunate that judges like these get to rule without carefully looking into a case.

She favors clients with attorneys, and discriminates against non-English-speaking people. She is too lazy to read the file. She favors the attorneys that she is familiar with, and treats the others like dirt. We are supposed to let her rule. She is pretty scary -- if you don't believe me, go sit in her courtroom for a day and see for yourself. She should not be a judge at all.
