She is a political appointee, she spreads rumors in and out of the court room, she schmoozes up to the rich and wannabe powerful, those who have appeared before her can not wait for the elections to vote her out.

If you ever get a case with this new Judge file a 170.6 to get her recused, she is not competent to be on the bench.

Her ego is bigger than her home, office, car and her Judicial Bench, she try's to fit in with the super rich but is out of touch with the real people.

She your typically politically appointed to the Bench, not a favor of the local Bar now is she very ethical and honest.

She has a reputation of doing and being some what on the wrong side of justice, she seems to be stuck up and arrogant.
