The previous comments here about temperament and intelligence are consistent with my experience with this judge. I have been before her in two cases (often with favorable rulings) but found her to be of substandard intelligence for a federal judge. She seems to have difficulty grasping new information, her decisions are confusing, often internally contradictory, and she is very slow. She really isn't very bright and one gets the impression that her clerks do much of the heavy lifting -- and these are not U.S. Supreme Court clerks, so they frequently missed key facts, disregarded evidence and mixed up concepts. And that was in decisions favorable to our client! Her temperament is also of concern. She can be petulant, occasionally nasty and very uneven in mood. I would avoid her when at all possible.
