Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: VA70
Rating:9.0
Comments:
I've watched this judge conduct a number of trials, and am genuinely impressed with her demeanor. I could see the pain in her eyes as she acquitted one defendant. She felt the defendant was guilty as heck and let her feelings be known, but she also knew the burden of proof wasn't quite met, and let that be known. That is, she let the evidence and her intellect, not her gut, decide the issue. This is far too rare on any bench.

This is a good judge, and whether or not you agree with one of her decisions, she at least provides a good rationale. Fair. Polite. Even-handed.
