She's like a cross between a tornado and a bolt of lightning!!!
17 July 2005 | by derek-chapman11See all my reviews

I'm not sure my comments will be valid as I'm English and gay, but I think I've fallen in love with Mrs Scheindlin! She's sharper than a razor, very witty, fearless, and with an ability to focus like I've seldom seen before. She takes obvious care when delicate children are involved, always spots the baddies, fakes, and blackguards in a matter of minutes, deals with each case with lightning speed, and for her age, is a very attractive, if conservative, woman. I've seen many of the shows, some two or three times. They are entertaining, educational, and a shot in the arm after a bad day at the office! I bet she's terrific company too! So to sum up, she's hard, fair, attractive, witty and extremely clever. Not a bad combination, and you don't get that many like that, at least not over here in the UK. I hope she carries on till she drops!! And if ever you fancy a drink Mrs Scheindlin ....... !!!!!!!!!
