Comment #: CO268
Rating:Not Rated
She made an initial ruling that was contrary to the law and the evidence provided but before we'd all left the building she called us back to change the ruling. Still not entirely appropriate but better. She said that she realized she'd made a mistake and wanted to get it corrected before we all left the building, which she did. But what happens to mistakes she doesn't catch or a pro se doesn't know exist and therefore, can't call her on it?

My daughter and I were in this judge's courtroom during a juvenile court case day. I was really pleased with how concerned she was for our family, as well as her patience and humor combined with a level of firmness. I think she had a real impact on my daughter. I am in glad to have her in Boulder County.

She is arbitrary and capricious and seems to lack even a basic understanding of family law. It's a travesty that someone so utterly clueless and overtly hostile is permitted to remain on the bench.
