Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: WA894
Smart. Fearless. Makes decisions based on the law and has little concern for public opinion and/or her re election prospects. Always respectful.

Rating:Not Rated
This judge is a big reason why the justice system in Yakima is failing. Doesn't know the criminals from the people who aren't criminals. Needs to be fired or reeducated on her duties and responsibilities of her job. She is extremely bias and prejudice against men and military veterans. She has let murders basically walk inwhich the people of the Yakima community have to live in even more fear than they do already from gang violence. She also takes it upon herself to disrespect not only prosectuters, public defenders, and defendants but also any and all staff that she works with. Time to remove this judge from her seat and put someone there that actually knows the justice system as well as fairness.
