Gave me a fair jury trial. Keep an eye on jury charge. Balls and strikes. Refreshing in federal court.

A very incompetent judge. He has no clue about the basics of law. Copies verbatim the inconsistent arguments of the party he decides should win. Extremely vindictive when the errors in his rulings are pointed out. Unfortunately, the district judges rubber-stamp his incompetence. Result - costly appeals. Hope he is removed for his incompetence, which is sufficient ground for removal.

Pro government and hostile to civil rights.

Judge Mazzant is what you want for your judge. He's smart, flexible and hard-working. He truly serves the litigants before him and tries to be "user-friendly." The only complaint is that at times his being such a nice judge to appear before gets in the way of him making some harsh rulings that need to be made in civil cases. But overall he's a great judge.
