She has the patience of a saint, but won't take crap from anyone. I love the judge.


Comment #: 33783
Her partisanship is obvious to all and discredits the federal judiciary. She is an activist liberal who carried her politics with her to the bench. Judges like Berman cause the public to lose faith and trust in the judiciary. As unusual as it is for parties to seek recusal of a judge, I'm surprised she isn't the target of recusal motions in most of her assigned cases. Berman represents everything that is wrong with the judiciary and with America.

A great judge. The federal bench is lucky to have her.

Judge Jackson is totally full of herself. I've had her in several civil cases against the government. She was arrogant and condescending from day one. She thinks she knows more than she actually does about the law and does not like to be corrected. She is also not receptive to being educated about the facts in a case. She bends over backwards to accommodate DOJ attorneys. The bias is not even subtle. She's the worst.

This judge is absolutely horrific and stalks and harasses litigants out of court. Her obscene conduct should result in disciplinary actions
