Extremely biased, sides with corporate conglomerates no matter how much evidence a plaintiff consumer presents, allows staff to be abusive (especially her bailiffs), interrupts plaintiff consumers and never lets them have their say, allows corporate defendant to interrupts plaintiff consumer.

Recently was in her court room. She looks completely frazzled as if she wants to bolt from the courtroom! She appears mental. Would not be surprised if she is next reassigned to some loon bin!

This Judge is an absolute Mental case. Awarded a Plantiff $10,000 on an AS-IS car sale that they paid $4000.00 for 2 Years ago. I think she should have a 5150 Mental evaluation.Luckily her Idiotic verdict was overturned on appeal by a temporary Attorney sitting in as a Judge Pro Tem. Please someone get this Idiot off the Bench. Thank you Jerry Brown for another wonderful decision appointing this NIT WIT.

The stupidest judge ever. After providing LAW and evidence of fraud against a real estate agency for their agents fraud, this moron was so incompetent that she failed to rule accordingly questioning why the real estate agency should be held liable if the agent is a 1099 when there is actual law that holds the agency liable. Even after filing an SC-108 it landed again on this morons desk, and after chewing it down and spoon feeding it to her in a nice thick package neatly tabbed out, she again denied the request with no explanation on how she reached her idiotic decision. This clown thinks she owns the court room with NO regard for the law. An embarrassment to the judicial system.

When you listen to this judge, you get the immediate idea that she is over her head and hasn't a clue as to what to do. Learned she isn't. She gets easily confused. If you are assigned to her court immed. ask to be reassigned or your fate is with a fool.

Sat in her Small Claims court and witnessed the most appalling decision making or lack thereof. She is a super duper idiot. Pathetic. She should be reported to the Presiding Judge of this courthouse for being a misfit. Felt very sorry for the litigants. She needs to look into the mirror and accept the fact that she is in the wrong profession. I can envision her working at the 99Cent Store stocking shelves!

She does small claims court- you know the ones that take 10-minutes to get screwed over. Therefore this is a court for dummy judges

A total misfit. Not sure how she became a judge but it's probably politics as usual. Not sure how long she even practiced as an attorney but she is a dimwit and should be removed. IF you happen to get her as a judge file a 170.6 which means getting rid of her!

She had absolutely no idea what she is doing! Her opinion is that of her court attorney. Shes completly enept and should never have been placed on the bench!! She not only lies but her courtroom is out of control and unprofessional. If shes your judge...BEWARE...she cares nothing about the law. Shes stated she "does what she wants in her courtroom"
