Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 20990
Rating:1.8
Comments:
I found the judge to have her own agenda, without regard to Northern District precedent. She is the last judge that I would want handling a case for a client. Very, very biased and opinionated. It is good that she is a federal judge or she would likely be replaced.

Don't let Judge Totenberg's liberal background or Obama appointment fool you. She is very pro-defense. If you are a plaintiff's lawyer in front of her, you need to be concerned.

A diligent jurist who is willing to make a party's arguments for them and to incorporate foreign law in her rulings to bring about a desired result.

Comments:
very prompt, professional and actually easy on the eyes. As an Obama-Democratic appointee she seems biased towards defendants in civil cases

Perfectly prepared, very thorough understanding of the law, balanced and fair, great staff. A pleasure to work with every time. The most plaintiff friendly judge in the NDGA - by which I mean, balanced.

Seems to know the law and fair, but clearly defense friendly/inclined, which is no suprise - liberal, Jewish and Obama appointee from Maryland.
