I have to agree with the lawyer here who says Judge Jones thinks she knows more than she does. Very BAD judicial temperament. Rude and condescending. She cost me my drivers license for a year because she thought I was some dumb pro per who would not challenge her decision, which a first year law student would have realized was improper. I had her revered in a published decision by the California Court of Appeal. See:

Exceedingly bright. Reads the papers, grasps the issues. Is able to both give a fair hearing and move her calendar.

This judge has one of the worst temperments I have experienced in 25 years of practice. She is quick to jump to a conclusion and won't change even if wrong. She thinks she knows more than she does. She ruled for my client (civil defendant)on some preliminary matters (and sanctioned the other side) and against my client on a demurrer. The case was eventually dismissed, but she could have dismissed at the demurrer stage and saved everyone hundreds of thousands of dollars. I would affidavit her in the future.
