What others have said about Hon. Timothy M. Cain


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 25716
This judge granted a summary judgment simply because the represented party requested it. The case never went to discovery, he never allowed a jury to determine reasonable due diligence, and he has ruled that a prior filing is evidence. In a civil case, prior court filings are called judicial admissions but they are not evidence. This prior court filing allows for equitable tolling and defeats the statute of limitation defense presented by the opposing party. This case was already decided by the judge and the opposing party before I submitted one document.

Simply one of the finest human beings around. Thoughtful and measured, Judge Cain cares deeply about judicial integrity and following the law. A lawyer's judge, who once worked as a small-town practitioner himself, he is humble and gracious, even when facing unprepared or overmatched lawyers.
