I am the cousin of Burton I. Gordin, the former Executive Director of the Michigan Civil Rights Commission, 1964-1970. I am researching Mr. Gordin's professional career and would appreciate speaking with Judge Cook.

Judge Cook is one of the most even handed and fair judges that I have ever met. He is the epitome of what a judge -- federal or state -- should be.

Comment # 8320 is absoulutely accurate.

A true gentleman jurist of the highest order. He is a courteous, calming influence who makes it impossible for attorneys to behave uncivilly. He has no need to be a disciplinarian, his gravitas has that effect. His wealth of experience shows in his ability to cut to the core of a matter. He is always engaged in what is transpiring before him. He allows you ample time to make your case and his decisions have always seemed perfectly impartial. In sum, Judge Cook represents what every judge should aspire to be.
