He's not a bad guy, he's just not the greatest judge. Maybe he'll get better with time. He made some wacky rulings on motions to compel.

A good, solid judge. I absolutely LOVE how he handles motions: You file paperwork and he has a ruling within a week.

On the case I had with him, he was fair and even-tempered.

BIASED. Does not appear to understand proper role as a Magistrate. Does not check facts. Does not understand complex litigation. Snarky, rude and not at all judicious. He is not cut out for this work. WORST Magistrate I have ever encountered in the area of unbiased trial preparation.
