Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 20772
Rating:2.7
Comments:
During a hearing on a motion to dismiss, which was supposed to be based on the pleadings, he asked defense counsel to submit evidence which was not subject to cross examination. On top of that, the evidence submitted was both vague and irrelevant, and he seemed to have no problem with that despite objections. He asked questions indicating that he clearly didn't understand the complex litigation, and his opinion misstated facts. Lawyers representing large corporations love this guy because he goes out of his way to make sure that they win.

Very angry and appears to be over emotional and losses control and forgets during the sentencing process.

Rating:2.0
Comments:
Lazy, never has hearings, superficial reader of papers at best, reaches completely incorrect factual conclusions on a regular basis. No bias, but a terrible draw -- results will be random.

Even though he is not one of my preferred judges to be arguing in front of, and he can be very harsh on criminal defendants, I give him credit for his intellectually honest.

He is very active in narrowing down issues and takes the time to separate fact from fiction.
