Rating:10.0
Comments:
She's very calm in court. She recognizes ridiculous protective orders granted by other substitute judges and dismisses them. Understands when POs are used as vindictive tools to get at people. Judges who hand out POs like candy should be jailed themselves.

Unfortunately my experience is directly opposite of the prior poster. My experience has not been that Judge Smith is either even-handed or overly well prepared or knowledgeable. She does have a good temperment in the courtroom which is admirable on a tough docket.
