I've never understood the "my courtroom" attitude, condescension and disdain some/most of these tv judges exhibit...as though their job is a favor to the litigant. I don't generally take issue with her rulings; I DO find her to be rude, dramatic, condescending, patronizing.. I can go on.

You leave with your dignity in tact .. unless you try to play him. Then you leave in pieces. Sis can learn from a brotha. I think she's the one who says purpose of court is to make you whole or restore you to wholeness or some such. You don't do that awarding damages but damaging individuals in the process.
