While she allows a real oral argument, she already knows the law and the outcome, because she thinks she knows the law. She is one of densest judges I have encountered. She demonstrated literally no understanding of proximate cause. My secretary also doesn't know anything about proximate cause but she immediately understood the case should have been dismissed just based on common sense, which Judge Scarpulla apparently has none of. She is the embodiment of the adage "a little knowledge is dangerous."

Justice Scarpulla is an excellent judge. She reads all motion papers before arguments, is well prepared, and knowledgeable on the law. She rules swiftly, often from the bench, but does listen to arguments made by counsel in a patient manner. She is firm, but courteous towards lawyers in her courtroom.

A very proactive judge. Her part is always crowded because she takes time to hear every oral argument and hear both sides out. She doesn't just cycle through her calendar but tries to identify the real issues and gets involved in settling the case. On one case, she would call both sides every 2 days to see if we had settled the case after she urged a settlement. She's a breath of fresh air.
