4752. party to case (with attorney)

This judge seemed intent on promoting injustice in the family court system. Turning a blind eye to her own mediators recommendations - twice - never once meeting the other party, completing ignoring facts and relying strictly on hearsay, she took my baby from me and shipped her across the ocean to her father who had only taken a spectator's part in her life.

This judge gave my children back to a child molester, and he - well, he did what you'd think. She is NO JUDGE. Callous, impatient, and cruel, and I believe she must get kickback money from DynCorp International to be sending so many abused kids away from their mommies. Corrupt.

3051. attorney (private practice)

Terrible courtroom demeanor. Her tone is utterly sarcastic and unprofessional.


3097. attorney (private practice)

Not likely to be familiar with the documents in the case; not clear from the bench or in writing. Courtrrom demeanor is lacking, to be kind. I advise 170.6.


4923. juror

I have served as a juror on 3 trials. The first two were criminal and this last one was civil. I have never been more impressed with a judge, than I was with the Honorable Bacal. Her tone was friendly to all involved, and respectful to both the plaintiffs and defendants. Honestly, she was a wonderful judge, keeping proceedings moving and really honoring the process.

The honorable judge Bacal was rude and disrespectful during my case. She would only speak to my attorney and would not hear anything I had to say. I believe that because she is of the Hispanic culture she pushed more towards my ex-wife to have everything. If you're Caucasian you do not have a fighting chance in front of this judge.
