Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 23622
Rating:1.2
Comments:
This guy is a complete jerk. Rude to people (especially Pro Se and regular folks appearing before him for tickets and the like), take MONTHS to get anything done with a case - sometimes literally YEARS - and tends to use canned responses that are so obviously cut and paste its an embarrassment. He is also intolerant of even the slightest criticism, and overreacts to just about anything. Absolutely the wrong temperament to be a judge, and they should remove him post haste.

He is close-minded, and is unwilling to understand different interpretations of the law.

Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:2.1
Comments:
This guy is a poor excuse for a judge. Small-minded, heavily biased toward law enforcement and government.

Must either have drinking/drub problem, or some other reason for his actions.

Avoid at all costs.

Kellison will invent facts to justify a ruling. I would not consent to a magistrate hearing a case if there was any chance of being assigned to his court.
