What others have said about Hon. Nanette Jolivette Brown


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 25279
She is rude and condescending. She uses arrogance to mask her incompetence and demonstrate her superiority. Very slow in making decisions. Clearly the worst judge in the EDLA and probably in the entire 5th circuit.

Comment #: 23983
Writes very educated and well-reasoned decisions. I've litigated multiple cases in front of Judge Brown and she has a great temperament and shows respect for both Plaintiff and Defendant.

This judge is not qualified for this position. She is intimidated by strong well known lawyers and responds with arrogance, rudeness and condescension in an effort to cover it up.

after almost 1 year of civil litigation, no jury, yet no verdict

May be the worst judge in the 5th Cir. Totally unsuited to be a trial judge.

Judge Brown has a great disposition, and seems to give every matter presented before her great consideration before ruling. Having said that, my firm has not been successful in her courtroom. However, we felt that she gave us a fair hearing.

I'd be interested to hear what she's like in criminal cases because she actually has to work on those. Can't give you much on the civil side because she continues everything and won't make a decision.
