Comment #: WA849
Rating:Not Rated
In complete agreement with other comment about issues with her temper and sharp comments designed to put you down. She consistently challenges litigants on issues that aren't before her.

The sad part is her challenges are pathetic because she doesn't keep up with case law and struggles with trying to recall the basics. Clearly, she feels left out of the action glued to the bench in her tiny room where she can't preside over trials.

Avoid her if you can. If you can't, good luck.

Crabbiest commissioner or judge I've ever appeared before (think parochial school nun). Don't stand in the wrong spot. Don't talk, even in a whisper, when you are waiting for your turn. Don't ever interrupt her and immediately stop speaking when she interrupts you. Comes across as a real control freak.

She seems to try to engage in the matter in front of her, but gets stuck with irrelevant material. Asks for the law on issues that are not material to the disposition of the case and then won't let go. Seems as if she's trying to make people look or feel stupid.

She is on time though and seems willing to be flexible with scheduling, if it accomodates her schedule - not the attorneys'.
