Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OR247
Rating:1.5
Comments:
Obviously biased from day one. Made her bias clear to everyone in the room. Disrespectful to expert witnesses. Even "coached" the favored lawyer, almost swooned at the favored party, sneered at disfavored party. No effort to appear neutral or to make both sides feel heard. This judge contributes to the sense that our justice system is not just. Hope she figures this out.

The worst judge I've ever appeared before. Makes up her mind in the first 2 minutes...thinks she's smarter than she is...grimaces and "tells" her feelings about case obviously during trial...ignorant of civil law...arrogant and short with counsel
