Prosecutor

Comment #: 22089
Rating:Not Rated
Comments:
Prickly at times. Understands issues, open to listening to arguments, comes prepared, very intelligent though short on patience. Not a bad draw for prosecutors or defense attorneys, depending on the case.

The one that controls the schedule is the judges deputy clerk Kathy, has a nasty temper, short fuse, very hyper, uses cuss words when things dont go her way.
The judge allows it to happen because Kathy is very good at her work but lacks people skills and at times her temper gets out of hand.
