Comment #: 33310
A Yes Man to American Government interests. He either does not care about or does not know about the law, or moral correctness.

Judge Stark is now an Article III judge. I've been a court reporter for over 30 years, and I have worked with many fine judges. I am proud to work with Judge Stark, and I can say with certainty that he has met, and exceeded, my expectations of a judicial officer that fills the auspicious position of an Article III judge for the District of Delaware.

I attended a Markman hearing recently and thought Hon. Stark had excellent command of the subject matter and moved the process along at a very professional rate.

He mediated while a magistrate in addition to presiding over pretrial proceedings. He is now an Article 3 judge. He is smart, prepared, and evenhanded. His demeanor is very pleasant and he is respectful of the parties.
