Judge Bianco is a different animal than most legal types, let alone most judges: He realizes that he is human! I have always found him of cheerful temperament, unwilling to engage in attorney distractions. His rulings, even when against me, are presented in a manner in which the loser understand his line of reasoning, even if she disagrees with it. I hope he gets elevated to the Circuit someday.

He does not believe in the documentary evidence. Also, he does not know the time difference between October 31st and November 1st -- he ruled that the difference is one week, and not one day.

Well-informed and fair but somewhat naive, in my opinion.

The judge was extremely fair and reasonable in all pretrial discussions and extremely courteous at oral arguments. He asked questions and let you know what he thought without being abusive or ill tempered. His decision was thorough and well thought out.

An extremely uncooperative Judge who thinks he is above the law of the Constitution of the United States of America.

I find it hard to believe that I am being treated to the worst from JUDGE JOSEPH BIANCO, yet others think this man is a nice guy. Wow! I guess when you have something to hide - you never let the good people see what you're doing. Reading opinions in case books, one can forget that a judge is a living, breathing person anxious to arrive at the ‘right’ decision when such a panacea may not be achievable,” said attendee Gabriel Gershowitz ’09. “Judge Bianco offers a model for nevertheless striving for that admirable goal.”

He is the worst example of a decent judge I have ever seen. Don't ever let him speak to children as a role model - only in Iran or Iraq.

Think Scalia, Roberts, Alito. He is a W appointee. If you represent those who W looked upon favorably, you may be fine. If you represent the little guy, look out.
