Comment #: CA29024
She has no patience and understanding of how victims of crimes feel. She simply runs through cases as if the well being of human beings is not a factor. If the court can make money off of people committing crimes it will when you have judges like this who give criminals so much leniency.

Judge Solorzano is knowledgeable, evenhanded, and open to listen to arguments from both sides. Win or lose, I am always confident the decisions she makes will be fair and rational.

Not necessarily a bad person, but just awful as a judge. I had a case in which I filed 100 pages of motions -- she refused to read them prior to the start of the hearing -- somehow she thought motions were a delaying tactic. Just awful.
