Rating:3.2
Comments:
Chronically late for hearings. Can be intolerant of and (often) demeaning to counsel. No practical understanding of investigative logistics.

Comments:
At one time I thought she was the "smartest judge in the courthouse". I have to admit that I don't think that anymore. She's still a very good judge, but her temperament of late has become largely unpredictable and a disappointment.
