She is the worst judge ever. Don’t understand the law and rules in favor of the businesses specially the one she knows.

If you get this judge - ask for a new one under CCP section 170.6 - you only get 15 days. Do this. She leans HEAVILY in favor of businesses. Watched her order a man's home sold over a small debt. Even if debt collectors violate the laws and consumer protections...she still rules in their favor. She trusts vulture businesses over regular people every time. She has no heart. Don't risk it- request a new judge.

This is an outstanding judge with excellent judicial temperament and a thorough understanding of the rules of evidence. So many judges do not.
