One of the best judges on the bench. He is exceptionally bright. He helps settle the cases that should be settled, and lets a jury resolve the cases which should be resolved by a jury.

Judge Tarnow is exceptionally intelligent and scholarly. While he is not afraid to let you know that, he does so in a pleasant way. He has a wonderful sense of humor, making him very easy to work with. His understanding of complex issues is outstanding, as is the quality of his opinions. His motion docket sometimes runs late, but only because he gives attorneys every opportunity to make their case and gets involved in colloquy with them. He always comes to the bench fully prepared. He gets top marks from me.

Gets the law right.

Example: sat by designation on a 6th Circuit panel recently. Was the sole dissenter on the opinion; the panel's decision was reheard en banc, and Tarnow's reasoning prevailed--the 6th Circuit overturned the split panel.
