Brilliant and level headed. Never fails to see the bigger picture and is constantly exhibiting strength of character in all of her decisions. I've witnessed her be completely disrespected both in and out of the courtroom and still handle herself with total grace and respect. But it should be noted - She is not one to take BS from anyone. Show up with respect in her courtroom or don't show up at all. Overall a very respectable judge. Happy to have her on the bench.

Disappointing. Less about the work, more about the perk kind of person. She has irrevocably tarnished her reputation with repeated poor decisions both on and off the bench calling into question her independence. If her judicial aspiration was to become a manipulated mini me, enabler, for an individual who has denigrated countless women. Mission accomplished.

Seriously, what has happened to her (wax). She began with such promise. Now, bitter, frumpy, basically a large hot mess. #getittogether...

Wow a judge who actually doesn’t let the State railroad people in criminal cases. And in Anne Arundel County. Simply amazing.
She is also well qualified to decide complex legal matters, probably due to having a background not just in trial but also appellate litigation.
Such a breathe of fresh air.

She's terrible! She denied a motion to reconsider a contempt. The defendant lied and she didn't even have the decency to hear the plaintiff's side of the story. Because of this my kids have been verbally and mentally abused by their father. The same father who's side she took without even giving the mother a chance to be heard. Thanks Judge McCormack!

Only heard of one case in which this jurist got it right and exonerated an innocent man.
