One of the best judges on the federal bench. He has a keen sense of what JUSTICE really means and interprets the Constitution in a way that makes me proud to be part of the legal system

A seasoned jurist with a well-deserved reputation for honesty, integrity and concern about the judicial system. A real pleasure to work in his court.

A good judge. Much villified simply because he ruled as he found the law to be. We need more judges like him.

rating of 4. Below any standard by which I believe a judge should be ranked. Consisently promotes himself and his own agenda over the people. He ranks at the top as a self promoter. near the bottom as a judge.

This judge needs to gracefully and quietly resign his position. He has made a mockery out of the judicial system. And in this last high profile case he has crossed the line with his drama and rhetoric. To say in his decision that the plaintiff will suffer irreparable harm is a veiled threat to say the least. For what? If he heard the word "Jesus" or "Amen"? That is just asinine. To give permission to make the sign of the cross, wear religious garb or kneel to face Mecca and NOT be able to STAND for prayer is a blatant bias towards Christianity. I mean really? KNEEL AND FACE MECCA? Judge Biery needs to be brought before a panel and evaluated. This life on the bench business is crazy too!

Why is it liberals always chide conservatives to be tolerant, yet they seem to be the most intolerant of groups. Once again, shame on you judge Biery, personal beliefs have no place in court decisions. Are you really going to put kids in jail for praying ?

A judge who exhibits a consistent bias and contempt against the 1st Amendment. His anti-Christian rulings are among the most extreme in the country from Media Valley to Cornerstone schools, he has even threatened children with jailtime for praying. If there was ever an activist judge who deserved impeachment and disbarrment, this is the one.

I am outraged at this Judge's ruling to ban prayer, even just saying "amen" at the Texas graduation. This censorship should not be allowed and I hope some students recognize that God's law is higher than man's law, and speak up for Jesus Christ, our Almighty God and Ruler. Apparently they will be promptly arrested... Wouldn't it be cool if every student was willing to say "amen" and get arrested to make a point that this violates the First Amendment? Liberal Judges like this, as well as Obama and a bunch of other liberals, are trying to rewrite the documents this country was founded on. They are putting their personal beliefs and agendas ahead of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Shame on you!

Congress passed no law that violates The First Amendment so to rule against free speech prayer in schools. Obviously this judge wants to make law not interprate it!

Very good judge when he used to do civil trials. May not be possible to get him to act on and resolve a complex civil case. Tailors rulings to force settlement to avoid any civil trials.

Experienced, and intelligent with a friendly disposition. Is willing to do the right thing, and will go out on a limb for a defendant at sentencing when the circumstances call for it, but will slam you if crossed.

He doesn't pay too much attention to prompt pretrial motions in civil cases, and he is slow to set a jury trial, but his instincts are good, and he has a wonderful sense of humor. Once in front of a jury, he is a great judge, giving both sides leeway and never showing any disprect to counsel or the parties. He has been a trial lawyer, a state district judge, an appellate judge and now a federal district judge. His heart, and head, are in the right place. He clearly likes his job and does it well. Still plays full court basketball well into his 60s.
