Judge Nightingale appears to be impartial, but once she decides (for whatever reason) that she doesn't like you, forget it.... you won't win the most menial Motion. Wish I knew what the hell I did that makes her hate me so much.

She is an excellent judge. I have only been in front of her on one case, and she worked hard, knew the law, knew the issues and was adequately prepared. In my one case, she ruled against me and it was against a family member of mine. But under the law, I think that she was likely right. Either way, she maintained a professional courtroom, and allowed me to present my case, and was respectful. I don't expect, nor ask for, more from a judge. I just want an opportunity to be heard.

I had a case in front of Judge Nightengale and I think she is an incredible judge. THis coming from someone who LOST in front of her. She is fair and impartial. She listened to my legal arguments, and she read all the motions placed before her. I was incredibly impressed with her. I hope she moves up and up and up.

Very good demeanor and has the potential to be really good. May need to work a bit harder on her cases.

Comment #OK139 sounds like sour grapes. To the contrary, I have found Judge Nightingale to be fair and impartial to both sides at all times.

This judge will determine which case or which lawyer(s) she likes and not care about the law or the evidence. Better be certain she likes you or your case or you are doomed.
