Does not take the time to review pleadings, and is generally unprepared. Agree she is unpredictable and takes too long to issue rulings in complicated matters.

Has too many personal problems that interfere with her handling of the job. Acts way too viscerally and is far too unpredictable. Just not a good judge to have to appear before.
