My case was before you on November 16,2015. You was not fair on my case, you didn't look at the medical evidence, all you worried about was what the doctors said about me. I guess you like a bunch of gossip, Perhaps you spread it around yourself.

Much thanks to Judge Kostol for her help and patience at my hearing. She asked very good questions and gave me many opportunities to comment. I was pleasantly pleased....after reading many generally negative comments about the process in general. She was thorough in her explanations and handled the case very well........Thank You, whatever the outcome!
