Everyone in court knows need to get work done morning before 'meds' kick in. Rude an disrespectful to all probably to cover lack of knowledge. Now elected to supreme shocking but nice to have hooks.

Extremely rude judge. To both sides as well as the jury. The type to just walk off the bench and start talking on her cellphone when you're on the record. No regard at all for others.

My experience with this judge is that she will ignore the law for the result she wants.

Worked with her from a distance in KCDA's Office; now as a criminal defense attorney i appear before her occasionally; she seems very fair to me all the way around to both defense and prosecution; on my cases and watching her on others. I see these older, not-so-great comments about her, but those appear to be in the civil arena. She seems very fair and tries to do the right thing in my opinion

Pro-prosecutor and a poorly skiled lawyer.


Comment #: NY1964
This Judge is the reason judges should be appointed, not elected. Shameful.
