1747. party to case (pro se)

She is beyond bad..her attitude is terrible. She thinks court is about her. She likes to ridicule people. As a pro se litigant I wrote opposing papers to a motion and she was impressed with the work and said someone must of helped me out. Needs to be removed from her position. Judges should not have immunity!!!
