Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:9.6
Comments:
Very prepared and expects counsel to be prepared. She is one of the hardest working magistrate judges in the Central District and is courteous and civil to counsel and litigants. An effective settlement officer.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 4663
Rating:7.0
Comments:
Very much by-the-book. Has denied various stipulations on overly technical grounds. Is a bit of a pain in civil discovery motions.

Litigant

Comment #: 4645
Rating:10.0
Comments:
Excellent judge in a settlement conference involving a trademark dispute. Hardworking, committed, and extremely pleasant demeanor.

Probation or Pretrial Officer

Comment #: 3556
Rating:1.0
Comments:
Denies everything outright, including stipulated orders. Unwilling to roll up her sleaves and get down to business. Favorite move: punt.
