Great Judge!

Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:Not Rated
I agree with the comment that she ignores black letter law. I would also add that she is defense oriented. It was obvious at the hearing that she was interested in bending over backwards to find in favor of the Defendant insurance company.

This judge panders to the weak, and accommodates when she shouldn't. Will absolutely not make a stand and does not follow the black letter of the law.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL1505
While not a 10 on difficult legal concepts, she spends the time to learn them. She is also WAAAYYY too nice to counsel who misbehave. I suppose that is judicial temprament. I would prefer that she had a bit of Judge "S" in her and vice versa. But she is an exceptional judge.
