Only know him in Civil matters. Have lost as many as I've won in front of him, but have always been impressed with his consistency. Very even-handed, though don't try any nonsense -- he'll cut you off quickly if he thinks you are wasting the Court's or the Jury's time. I learned that the first time I tried! After that, everything was fine. All judges should be this consistent and fair -- it would make good lawyers' jobs much easier.

While I haven't always won my points, this judge is about the best I've seen. If all were as fair and competent as Judge Duggan, rulings would be much more consistent and sensible.

Judge Patrick Duggan is very short tempered and very impatient, and treats the attorneys and the litigants in his Court poorly.
