We used Judge Kenton as a mediator in a difficult case. He got us to settlement.

Comments:
This boring, unmotivated was not much as a public defender and he consistently sides with the government and prosecutors and against criminal defendants. He has no heart, soul, sprit, or integrity. He is worse than useless.

The fact that he was promoted from with-
in the ranks of the Federal Defenders
office speaks volumes. That makes him quite in the minority- as a sitting
magistrate/judge.

Judge Kenton is thorough, well-prepared and thoughtful in his rulings. He allows the attorneys to try their own cases, and has a pleasant and professional courtroom demeanor. He has the ability to boil down cases to their core issues and reach the right result.

Comments:
He is extremely pro-authority, perhaps because he grew up as the son of a career federal prison warden. He is marking his time toward retirement and has no concern for fairness or justice. He is lazy and uninterested in the law.
