Comment #: OR339
I am currently witnessing Judge James use extreme bias in an ongoing medical malpractice case. I have more than 20 times witnessed her que the defense attorney to object and make nods, head shaking and addressing witnesses directly about their testimony which appears to bias this secific case. I hope the adminisration will review the camera in the room and take appropriate action to discipline this very bias judge...so far she is ensuring an appeal by the plaintiff. Ive never witnessed such a scene before. Shame on this very Bias Judge.

Demonstrated extreme prejudice disfavoring ballot measure 37. Demonstrated ignorance of constitutional predicates under state and federal law. Punctual.

A crusader: pro-defendant in civil cases, acts as the prosecutor in criminal cases. She's all about herself, and seems to be running for appointment to the appellate or federal benches -- where she would be even worse.
