Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 4097
Rating:8.4
Comments:
Very bright judge. Exceedingly fair and usually right on the law. Often takes too long to rule on pending motions and to issue opinions. Rulings are generally right on the money when they do issue, however. Runs a fair and balanced courtroom and generally appears skeptical of the government in criminal cases.

One of the great old-fashioned jurists on the bench.

He is very old now and does not work that hard anymore. When he does, he is one of the best.

Doesn't believe in lawyers making money even when the jury has spoken. Likes to reduce damage awards as a sport.
