Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA11768
Fails to understand fundamental legal issues. Very sad that those in the profession must risk judges who have no clue what the law, choose not to learn it and who then render a damaging decision without a care in the world of its ramifications.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA10407
Fails to read the case at hand, even on rulings she previously made. Unwilling to make decisions. Just continues to kick the can down the road. Very unfortunate that she's even aloud to set on the bench. If it wasn't for her husband probably wouldn't be.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA6351

Civil Litigation - Private

She is a fair, intelligent, and polite judge. She gives counsel a genuine opportunity to argue against her tentatives.
