This is a horrible judge...she lies, she cheats and she enjoys diluting the law. Extremely biased. Everything that was true in court she turned into a lie. Everything that was a lie, she turned it into the truth...you can not do this with out an agenda.

She is an unfair, biased attorney who lets court employees illegally influence cases. She also is so rude and disrespectful to everyone I have seen her interact with in court.

Comment #: CA7738
She does not understand the difference between facts and fictions. She does not have any logic in her ruling. She must do flick in most math classes. She wants to be a drama queen, but she is way to fat and no one want to hire her.

Comment #: CA6167
This judge has a social political agenda that does not allow her to follow the rule of law. This judges interest is womens rights so men are automatically suppressed and underminded in use of the law to find judgement against men to satisfy her own desires.
