Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA5
Rating:1.8
Comments:
Worst judge on the state bench. Tries hard, but no intellect whatsoever. Cannot grasp issues of any complexity. Means well, but is extremely biased. Terrible trial judge. Seems to be a nice person, but also has no control of her courtroom. Lets attorneys ramble without controlling them, allows disruptive and abusive litigation tactics. Changes her mind frequently, encouraging attorneys to drag things out. Unfortunately, she should never have been appointed to anything more than traffic court.
