Comment #: CA9042

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA7055
This "Judge" appears paralyzed by fear of being wrong so she makes washy washy and haphazard decisions and consistently forgets facts. She relies solely on the lawyers papers and does not listeten to testimony which she has forgotten by the time she gets around to ruling which is typically months and months later. Her rulings are often grammatically incorrect, factually inaccurate, indecisive, erratic and bizarre,
