A stellar judge. Fairness is within his compass. However, technical analysis is not, though he is clearly very intelligent.

In a difficult civil matter which was before Judge Dow for more than one year, the Judge demonstrated himself as being fair, courteous and understanding of the logistical difficulties of the parties and their respective counsel. Judge Dow promptly referred the matter to a Magistrate Judge when the possibility of settlement was raised and allowed those settlement discussions to conclude.

Nice man. But he can't seem to get anything done. Motions sit for months, even when magistrates are bugging him to make up his mind.
