What others have said about Hon. Donna F. Martinez


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 18491
Very vindictive when anyone disagrees with her. Grudge lasts throughout litigation. Her personal feelings regarding parties more important than facts and law. She doesn't hesitate to disregard well-settled case law if she doesn't like someone. Despicable human being. Unqualified magistrate.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 3132
Likeably, smart and very capable. Her discovery rulings are usually right on the mark. She doesn't tolerate fools and nonsense. She is the go-to Magistrate Judge to settle a case, particularly if you have a difficult client - she is very skilled at bringing an unreasonable litigant around.
