Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 30707
Rating:1.0
Comments:
I have tried and litigated numerous cases and found him to be abusive, lacking in judicial demeanor, racist and also sexist. His comments are only to satisfy his own ego as we know he has a fragile one given his own medicre legal career where he has few clients (as told to me by others). I will be looking into filing a complaint about him as soon as my matter isn’t over.

Pompous and thoughtless. If he had 1/10 the legal brilliance he thinks he has, it might perhaps be worth it to tolerate his attitude. Unfortunately, he thinks he's a genius, and cannot handle any questioning of his thoughts and analysis. He is nasty, and his treatment of counsel is beneath the dignity of the Court. He does not listen to replies at oral argument, and doesn't particularly seem to care what counsel say in response to his comments and questions, but only asks questions to see if counsel will tell him whatever it is he wants to hear. Other than that, great Judge.

As has been said below, he's never met a government defendant he didn't like. So if you draw him and are suing the US, abandon all hope. You can't paper these federal judges, so I suppose a site like this really only foretells the trouble you'll have once you draw a bad federal judge.

The judge saw things our way on nearly every motion and merits decision while our case was pending before him. But he still berated us repeatedly and accused us of wasting his time. I would give him a "0" in Judicial temperament if I could.

He is smart, conservative and pro-business. He has common sense. He can be tough when needed but is courteous.

He needs to recognize that a Defendant is innocent and release the Defendant.
Once the Defendant has proven, with court documents, that he is innocent, it is time to release the Defendant and let justice be served.

He thinks he is another co-counsel for the government attorneys - very pro government

Intelligent, empathetic, hard-working, but still finding his way. Indecisive. Many babies are split.
