Anyone here have any ideas on how to handle sexism on the bench? I’m at my wits end in a case where my opposing counsel (white male and also a total jerk) is buddy-buddy with our presiding judge (also white male). In every single hearing, opposing counsel interrupts me every time I address the court, and the judge not only allows it, he never allows me to get back to my point. He also likes to hold all of these hearings as off record status conferences. Any strategies to fight this?

I'm grateful that I got promoted and got a raise under these circumstances, but I know that in my firm when people get promoted to be a manager, they are also offered bonuses, I wasn't (and I confirm that this was the case with my promoted peers-all male). I know that I'm a high performer, all my reviews were great and the management supported my promotion. I don't understand why I wouldn't get a bonus. I want to discuss this w/my director. Any suggestions on how I should express my frustration?
