Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:3.0
Comments:
Seriously bias and ignorant of the facts. If you represent yourselves prepare to recuse the judge and declare unconstitutional for the bias orders. She doesn't care what is the consequences and she will stand on other side. Law or constitution is not accounted and even will say you have no constitutional rights.

Judge Beeler is intelligent and industrious, and is very flexible in scheduling matters. She reads the briefs and the law, and applies it well. But, she belies a double standard between the perceived "little guy" and the corporate defendant: the defendant must strictly comply with the standards she derives from the cases, while the "little guy" is excused from the same strict standards.

Have had one case with her which is still ongoing. So far I am very impressed. Biggest thing for me is I trust her to exercise her intellect and common sense for an appropriate result. She seems very balanced, and she listens.

Judge Beeler is a model judge who has an uncanny ability to find common ground between parties. She is sharp, gracious, and treats everyone in her court with respect. I have seen her work through lunch and past court hours without a word of complaint. The people in this district have reason to be proud.

I have nothing but respect for Judge Beeler. She is relatively new to the bench here in the N.D. Cal., but she is already a favorite amongst many practitioners for her ability to find solutions for complex problems and her good nature.
