Rating:Not Rated
I don't know how she goes to bed at night . She is one of the meanest, disrespectful people I have ever met. She screams, yells and belittles everyone in the courtroom from the defendants to the attorneys. How does she keep her job? She is so unprofessional. I am hoping someone puts a stop to this bipolar, hysterical judge.

From personal experience only, she is just plain awful. She has zero patience, screams over anyone else talking, refuses to hear pertinent evidence, shuts down all efforts for a fair hearing and simply does not take all factors into account. She is far too disinterested and self-important. I've worked with judges for 30 years and she has, by leaps and bounds, the worst demeanor on the bench of anyone I have ever witnessed. Hopefully she won't be back when her term expires. I feel bad for anyone who goes before her, particularly on domestic relations matters
