Rating:Not Rated
Judge Korn runs a professional, efficient courtroom. She is thoughtful, compassionate, and exercised fair reasoning. While Judge Korn did not grant our continuance, it was clear that she carefully listened to our concerns. I felt compelled to leave a review here because some of those comments from others didn’t make sense to me and seemed spiteful.

This judge is tough like a mom but I do believe she has a good soul I hope in pray in my case she is fair and give me another new look at life for 2020. I must keep trudging on as a human, man, father and grandfather and I hope she will show me some mercy in her court room soon. All and all she is a great woman, and smart.


Comment #: CA27371
This diminutive chunk with the princess mentality loves a rigged game, allows withheld discovery to be turned over AFTER it is too late without penalty, and is as phony as a six-cent coin. And she allows a circus when the given pro-suck-utor is losing the case. She can also be "charmed" by attorneys with chit-chat. It surprises me not one iota that others here accuse her of being racist toward men of color. She also has problems with taller, thinner female attorneys.


Comment #: CA17834
She's racist. She is trying to get rid of all men of color. Every attorney you speak with says she's cold hearted and does not care. She does not hate men. She hates men of color. She sentenced a relative of mine crucially. She added on 15 extra years than what the DA was asking for. She needs to be removed in placed in another court district.


Comment #: CA7835
Pompous, arrogant, confrontational with attorneys and anyone who defers with her or challenges her opinion. Flexible with the law when it's convenient for her opinion.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA6004
Made several wrong statements to the jury. Gave the defendants the wrong information about time to appeal. Failed to control her staff on several occasions. Fails to disclose conflicts when she is trying cases involving competitors to her husband's business. Knowingly suborns perjury to help her former employer. Hates men and views them all as potential rapists so your best bet is to pretend to be a rape victim to gain her sympathy. Also very racist though she tries to hide her former involvement with a racist sorority. Vindictive and tries to intimidate citizens into giving up their rights or endure her wrath.

Judge Korn is another typical Arnold appointee. Republican, DA's office and not very bright. She openly challenged me in a bail hearing because the bail amount was punitive in nature. She is young, with a washed out face, and has no clue what she is doing. I have practiced for 30 years in this area. Given that Arnold slept with his maid, she probably had to give him at least a hand job to get the position. Terrible.
