Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 22594
Rating:3.0
Comments:
Judge Ralph Zaretsky is wants to be an advocate instead of an adjudicator. He rejects simple stipulations that have nothing to do with the operation of his court. His interjections make litigating cases more costly, time consuming, and not efficient.

Judge Zarefsky is an honest conservative who is intelligent, non-ideological, and professional. He has a schoolmarmish effect in court which makes it feel odd to watch him, but he gets to the point and rules fairly. A good judge.
