Excellent Judge. He ruled properly and lawfully on this February 19,2013 in the AEG case that so many locals are watching carefully and are concerned about regarding an alleged Wall St scam that hurt one of our local businesses.

Tends to make up his mind about things, and refuse to change it, even if shown he is wrong. Also seems to have a bias toward defense lawyers from large firms.

Comments:
This judge will go out of his way to find cases from other states that is contrary to local controlling authority cited to him, and then chastize the attorney for not citing authority to him, or ruling that there is no local authority, and adopts strange foreign law. If possible - stay away.
