Wow. Two ten-star reviews days apart after years of bad reviews. Nothing to see here. Nope!

Excellent Judge. Impressive grasp of the law and very thoughtful in her decisions.

I appeared in front of this judge years ago. I was a litigant, but I am also an attorney. I have little more to add than what is posted below. Judge Damiani doesn't pay attention to the rules of evidence (smart people like her think they shouldn't be encumbered by such nonsense), when asked about the bases of a decision she refused to comply (she's made a decision, shut up and sit down), and she's not particularly sharp on either statutory language or appellate precedent. Judge Damiani, if you want to know who I am or challenge my statements, my email is linked to this message.

This judge needs to go. She is not very bright, and is not at all fair. I cannot imagine how any sane person allowed her to wear a black robe.

This is an absolutely terrible judge, and if you can avoid her and get Judge Frogale, do it. She ignores rules of evidence and procedure, and the law be damned if it interferes with her decision. Make sure you have a court reporter when appearing before her.
