    Based on these two judges backgrounds, I think it underscores the fact that personal injury cases should be tried with an eye on educating the trier of fact without assuming they know anything about the law i.e. KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE!

    At least in the family law arena, Judge Cotton seemed very well versed and knowledgeable of the legal principles at hand. I am sure she will apply the same judicial temperament on the bench.
