She is nothing but a joke that our tax dollars pay for. I saw her show it stunk to high heaven and the jokes were all on the people in her court.

HONORABLE ? you have to be kidding.Favors local attorneys and is impressed by attorneys from large firms because she could not make it even in her husbands law firm. A no nothing, incompetent, lazy, narcissistic, rude judge and attorney. (embarrassed to refer to her as judge)We have to stop people from getting appointed because of political connections look up her husband who was very connected. She refuses to make decisions, her cases drag on and on.She refuses to follow the law because she is ignorant of the law. loves to waist other peoples money she will burry you in legal fees needlessly.They probably moved her too Chancery so she could retire at a higher pay, she in no way was qualified. All she wants to do is act as the ruler handing out needless well paying assignments to her fellow connected attorneys and former partners of her husbands law firm. She is a disgrace. If for any reason you are assigned to her or she is recommended as a lawyer run like hell don't be a fool. Don't believe me read the other comments. I understand there is a book coming out that details her very botched handling of a case. I cant wait to read it. You know what they say Gods gift to mental midgets is arrogance and she was overly gifted. I had a good laugh reading the few positive comments, they are nothing but BS Cleary must have written them or one of her trained seals. i understand she is retired , thank God. They should take away her pension why reward such a buffoon.

Rating:1.3
Comments:
The worst judge in the vicinage. Does not read pleadings. Becomes rude to counsel when pressed to actually consider and rule upon an issue of any substance. Permits her feelings about counsel, and the amount of work she must to do dispose of a case, to influence her decisions. Does not address substantive arguments or legal precedent.

Absolute bully. Decision made prior to hearing. Does not even allow you to speak without rudely interrupting you. Hardly impartial to pro se litigants...says on the record that she has to hear these things because they paid their 200.00.
