Good move. Judge Diaz has spent way too long there and formed an "Old Girls Club". Your haves and your have nots. Takes a lot of time off "Off the Books" which is why she doesn't want to move. If your on the inside its great, if you stand for principle, you're crucified.

Couldn't agree more. Diaz is a horrible person and a bad judge. If you kiss her ring you's golden. If you challenge her you b dead. Everyone working at the Hall is scared of her and no one thought she'd be moved!!!!!!!!!!

Could not disagree more. If you went up against her you had a challenge for sure. But the only reason (or at least primary reason) is you did something wrong. For anyone who sat in the victims seat it was a whole different take.
I can appreciate if I were in trouble wanting my circumstances fully considered and maybe even excused... But let's face it - most people made a wrong choice and justify it with an excuse and then blame the Judge for using the applicable law...
As a person who was "the victim" I just take the opposite stance

Judge Diaz is a biased and unethical Judge who finally was called on all her corrupt behavior. She favors certain attorneys with whom she is very good friends with and is known for regularly degrading people. She is drunk with power. She did do some really good things but the negative out shines this. I have been in her court room many times and she does what she wants to do depending on her mood or who she wants to punish. She is well know for this.
