She is not judge material! She needs to be removed from the bench!

Judge Cheryl A.McNally is a very incompetent racist judge! She should be removed from the bench immediately! She made me homeless and refused to give me my fair day in court on two separate court dates! Having her reside over my appeals and court proceedings was a waste of my time! She was chronically late both times that I went out of my way to be heard by her on my court dates! She did not let me speak and had the defendant's lawyer do all the talking! She told the biggest lie that I would get one hour to plead my case. Thirty minutes of this case was taken up, waiting for her to show up! Then,she showed up so late with a very non-challant attitude! She allowed the defendant to speak first for twenty minutes of the hour! I got no more than five or ten minutes before this incompetent judge said she was going to turn my case back to HOC, HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES COMMISSION so they could make the final decision! With all of the preponderance of proof that I showed this incompetent judge that my voucher was wrongly terminated,she still allowed racist Carrie Blackman,HOC's lawyer to have the bulk of the time in court. She then incompetently did not know how to exact justice, so she turned my case right back over to HOC to further carry out her lack of knowledge in dealing with fair housing issues! Do not allow this ignorant, racist, incompetent judge to preside over your case! She is a waste of the tax paying dollar.She is always late, doesn't listen or allow the plaintiff to speak! Please remove her from the bench!

I had Judge McCally for a summary judgment hearing. She allowed the parties to complete their arguments, asked appropriate questions when necessary, and kept command of the courtroom while being polite. I am interested to see her in trial.
