Judge hatchets and she does not like it.
When the judge has a problem with a woman, the result is often not good.
When he’s being very honest, it can lead to him being the only judge in the room, she said.
“It’s like being in the back of a car with the windows down and the lights on,” said Judge Hatchett.
“It’s not a good thing.”
It’s a fact of life for judges across the country.
A recent survey by the American Bar Association found that a third of judges said they would never take a woman to court.
That’s about twice as many as said they’d ever do.
“I can’t think of a better way to go about it than to look at the woman’s behaviour,” Judge Hatchet said.
“If she doesn’t behave like a proper person, then I won’t get along with her.”
The judge is also a good judge at the bar.
He is not one to judge people on their appearance, she added.
“You can’t just judge someone on appearance.
You have to look into the background,” Judge Knapp said.
