What others have said about Hon. Anthony J. Battaglia


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 21975
Thought his temperament was horrible. During one Early Neutral Evaluation case, while my clients were in the room, he referred to our case as "horse shit." I was totally shocked. Needless to say, I ignored his statement and the case later settled for 6 figures.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 5253
Unlike one of his colleagues who, like him, was plaintiff's counsel in private practice, he has taken off his advocate's hat and become a respected judicial officer. One of the few Magistrates that both plaintiffs and defendants will agree to allow to try their cases. Can be a bit short-tempered in trial, but I've tried a case before him and would be happy to try another. An excellent settlement judge who truly understand leverage points, when to press and when to back off.

Magistrate Judge Battaglia is gentlemanly and thoughtful. He is a pleasure to appear before.
