I have noticed the reactionary trend, low class whites wanting to express superiority to blacks, and wealthy people treating their employees like slaves. Old timey nostalgia for when people knew their place.

Then what exactly is the point of being in charge?


And why do we let parents treat their children as exact same manner?

So in a sense, same old shiat different day?

Everyone loves a hierarchy until they find that themselves at the bottom.

Stop me when I get something wrong:

A reasonably successful lawyer gets promoted to judge. She then immediately brings abusing her power and office. She gets officially called out on it by frustrated superiors and peers. She then alleges that this frustration with her own misconduct resulted in a hostile work environment that now requires her to be on disability and get paid to do nothing. She is insulted that the people who would authorize such payments are insisting she provide evidence of such a condition, and is convinced that the state, for who she held an office she abused and was investigated for ethics violations by, is unenthusiastic about writing her checks based on her admittedly brief tenure as a judge, for the rest of her life. She is now, and has been for years, suing anyone she thinks might be impeding her quest for a free ride.

Did I miss anything?

Sounds like she thought law-firm norms also applied when she became a judge. And how can one be a judge and bill for law firm work?

Hey, got a job, needed a job, heaven knows I'm miserable now.

Law firm norms. My boss used to have his articling students do his son's homework  ... including when the son was in law school. The secretaries spent more time on his personal business than they did on the firm's business.

She's angling for a gig on SCOTUS. D2S thanks she's a perfect fit. They have *so much* in common...

One of the tells of a narcissistic personality disorder/compulsive liar (they go hand in hand) is that, when attacked, they will never even attempt to defend themselves.  Instead they'll launch their own attack on the person who pointed out their sins.

Yeah, I worked briefly for an attorney who wanted me to do this shiat. Besides writing notices and motions, filing and answering phones, I was also supposed to set her doctors appointments, get her water delivery to her house, make her personal calls...

Did I mention I was only there briefly?

If you have someone working for you, and they have idle time, does it make sense for the judge to take time away to do that stuff, or have the paid assistant do it?

Secretary vs PA.
A secretary is part of the business side of things and should only handle business matters.
A Personal Assistant, on the other hand is just that. S/he helps with personal matters, that may or may not cover work.
The business thinking is that once you reach a certain level, the business wants you to only focus on work and have someone paid much less than you follow up on your menial tasks and stuff. It is worth it to the business to hire someone to do that.
For a period, while running my own business, I had someone like that. It is GREAT. All of those small tasks that you keep forgetting or postponing or not finding time for actually get done.
A cousin asked me what it was like having my personal GoFer, I replied that it was amazing, and mentioned the above points, but it was expensive; not just on the guy's salary (totally worth it!) but also on paying for everything that actually got done/bought.
It's like the days before Amazon; purchasing stuff was limited to you being free enough to go to those locations and buy the stuff. Now you just open the website and clickclickclick, all done, and delivered, but you also have to pay more as all of those purchases were not spaced out over time.
Having this guy 100% allowed me to focus on work, to the point where I'd ask him to remind me of personal stuff I needed to get done.
I think it was a 12 year relationship.
In addition to his salary, I had promised to cover his kids' education (not public) regardless of grade level or how many kids he had in school, I also figured that his matters taken care of allowed him to take care of me.
I would have NEVER had him do my kid's home for many reasons; ethical, demeaning, spoiling the kid (and his education), etc.

I look forward to the day that I have someone like him again, or two or three.

It makes sense for a lawyer in private practice to concentrate on legal work and have his or her assistants do other things. But this is a judge, and her assistants are working for the government really, not her personally. She should be doing things unrelated to her job on her own time.
