A very happy judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 28097
Committed probate fraud in at least several cases and withheld funds from beneficiary, at least may have helped facilitate theft in another. Extremely biased towards those who do not march lockstep with dominating democratic agenda/big political powers in the state. Super weak-willed, follow the money sell-out judge. Should've never made it to the federal bench after being state court judge. Just a sad sell-out loser on the bench, follow the MONNNEYYY

Lordy Lordy how did this person become a judge. Besides being just plain stupid in understanding the law and precedent cases, she's biased to the extreme in favor of pharma companies... taking direction from her pharma defense lawyer husband.

Gold plated phoney! She was horrible in San Mateo before being appointed by Obama. She wants to get onto the DCA and beyond! Very upset she is stuck in the backwater of San Jose. Now with Trump elected, she's stuck there forever.

Limited background and abilities. Lied about having 150+ jury trials as a state judge, her colleagues say maybe 25.

Judge Freeman lacks technical skills and knowledge of the law and she attempts to make up for these deficiencies by cutting-and-pasting from the briefings of the side that is most consistent with her biases in civil cases before she has assessed the facts.

Relatively new to the Federal Bench, Judge Freeman hit the ground running on a patent infringement matter. The Judge ran her courtroom smoothly and respectfully, and handled the complexities of the matter and the subject technology confidently and decisively. If not already, she will soon be a beacon on CAND. We need more judges on the Federal Bench like Judge Freeman.
