Comments 3294 and 7377 were right on the ball. I read them before my first appearance before him and figured they were from disgruntled attorneys. I was disappointed to find them true. Be prepared to hold his hand through your arguments and carry a thick skin for comments born of marginally restrained ego.

Was mostly interested in his schedule rather than the rights of the defendant at trial.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 7377
Rating:3.7
Comments:
Does not possess the breadth of legal experience or life experience to sit on the Federal Bench. IQ is average at best. Masks his lack of understanding of issues, evidence and/or testimony by keeping his mouth shut and appearing engaged.

Does his very best to be fair under all circumstances. Not afraid to do the right thing. Always a pleasure to appear before him.

Comments:
He looked to sanction one of the attorneys when no one even complained about what he incorrectly perceived as misconduct. He was also completely biased even at the initial conference and said he didn't think much of the case. He complimented himself about his experience as an attorney and made several inappropriate comments. Good thing the case was reassigned and settled in spite of what he thought of the case.
