Judge Audrey B. Collins:
Are you an atheist? That's a real question. Why would you ever bow down to a HATE GROUP? They have no right to have NO Nativity Scene. What about those who WANT the Nativity Scene? We have no rights? Atheists can look away from what "bothers" them. I find you made a hideous decision and have taken away our Christian rights to favor a hate group.

What you have done by banning ALL displays plays right into the hands of the atheists. They get what they want. That is the fastest way to DO AWAY with God.
I would not want the sentence He will give you.

So to appease the few, you denigrate the very essential foundings of this Country and tick off the mass? You need to be removed from the bench as being totally incapable of Constitutio0nal thought and run out of town!

Dear Judge Collins,

I am just curious, while the case was pending...

Did you really consider the 1st Amendment rights of Christians too? Really? Cultural diversity constitutionally commands tolerance. Christians are part of American culture too. I find your ruling disappointing, uneducated, intolerant and cowardly.

I think it is high-time that appointed federal judges have diminished authority and discretion in the cases over which they preside. How dare you impede the free exercise of any religion? It is amazing to me that somehow Christians are being excluded from enjoying constitutional protection time and again.

Christians have 1st Amendment rights too.

So your judgeship, I hope at some point soon you dust off your copy of the United States Constitution and sneak a fresh peak at the first amendment because your ruling is clearly repugnant to it and your applied constitutional understanding is woefully limited and sorely in need of review.

Sincerely,
John

What a profound disappoint you are as a human being. I am referring to your ruling about removing the nativity from the park. What will you decide next to imprison people who say Merry Christmas?
There is more than enough wrong with the country without succumbing to a bunch of whining non believers. if it was so distasteful don't look or go live someplace else. I am surprised that someone of your stature did not stand up to these people. Thanks to rulings like yours your great grandchildren will never know Christmas carols, midnight Christmas eve service, or perhaps even Santa Claus because other religions or nationalities found them offensive. So once again instead of judging fairly and explaining that it has been a tradition for centuries you "knuckled under" how sad because those kind of judgements is what is wrong with America today. I hope that you are happy with your repugnant and prejudicial ruling

How horrendous that this is the judge that is denying the Nativity to be displayed at Christmas after 62 years of it being a tradition in the Santa Monica CA. community. She had a choice and now she is denying this.

Litigation - the settlement she approved is a joke - you need to buy more from the guilty party to get compensation. There is no protection for the people who were cheated.

This is the most biased judge that I have encountered in 50 years of involvement.She's biased against mexicans and tried to intimidate me and counsel by parading defendants in chains. She's seems bought by Unv.of California with whom in my case she openly consorted with.

Judge Collins knows nothing about plagiarism. She makes her findings based on her single and thus narrow perspective. She is killing the creative community.

She is very pleasant and lawyer friendly, but as a plaintiff's civil rights lawyer I find her to still see things through the prism of a deputy DA. Whenever there is a legal call, she always rules in favor of the police unless she feels she has no choice.

Judge Collins largely decides motions on the papers without a hearing. She is therefore flexible on scheduling. However, once she decides which side is right or wrong, she seems to stick with it, and gives "her" side the benefit of the doubt and her opinion is rigid and inflexible. If you are on the "right" side, that is great, but if not, you are in trouble.

This an intelligent, fair-minded, hard-working judge, who also has the ability to be tough, when warranted. She is pro-plaintiff in civil rights cases, but has taken away plaintiffs' verdicts she has believed to be unfair. See Forrett v. Richardson, and the Ninth Circuit backed her up. This is a terrific judge who should be the template, along with Judge Robert M. Takasugi, for all federal judges.
