Comments:
I watched with disbelief as she made decisions to keep a child from family for flimsy reasons. This causes extreme expense for our county along with the extreme distress for children kept in terrible foster conditions, made worse by the piled on months of waiting between hearings. This judge seemed as intent on stretching out time between "hearings" as the family court system. We The People need to become more familiar with the harm befalling children and families in Santa Cruz County who are forcibly separated at great taxpayer expense, such as this judge aids happening.

Conolly is evil, short tempered, power-hungry, negligent, nasty, after having a priest, people from the church, several friends that are respectful and respectable completely disrespected by this horrible person for no reason. She is snappy and just watch the show everybody she has power. She is disgusting

This judge is incredibly temperamental, does not listen to reason, cannot finish a sentence. Appears to be intoxicated. Makes no proper judgment when listening to opposing side, CPS Appears to be intoxicated on the bench. Does not pay attention to reason, commonsense, or respect anything 12-year-old child has to say.

Case scheduled to be heard at 10:00 took place at 8:30 without informing plaintiffs. Therefore, judgement was made without plaintiffs presence or testimony.

Comments:
Judge Connolly is biased and guilty of child abuse by ordering forced family separation without a requested bonding study or taking evidence in consideration. One victim appealed one of her decisions and won.

Comment #: CA7218
Rating:1.0
Comments:
Judge Connolly is rude and generally legally incorrect. She has no interest in hearing either parties argument nor does she have any interest in considering the applicable law. Her goal in every hearing is to assert her power over the attorneys in the court room. Definitely pro-defense.

Rarely prepared, frequently late, always confused and hides her lack of understanding with a brusque manner. Her reputation as an attorney was poor and it followed her into the courtroom.
