Judge Howard is a credit to the US Federal Court System. I was present in Judge Howards courtroom recently during a litigation and I was very impressed with Judge Howards handling of the proceedings, her consideration of the facts and fairness in her sentencing.

It makes no difference for me to say so, because she is appointed for life, but I don''t feel like she has the temperament to be a good judge. Very little respect for counsel, very pro-government, she seems to be in a sort of macho competition with attorneys who practice before her. I dread having a case before her.

Needs to stop using cookie cutter orders and pay attention to the facts of the case before her. Inclined to cite to cases for support of her opinion that are wholly irrelevant to the facts at bar.

Wants you to know how smart she is. Unfair, disregards the law.
