Judge Roy Payne is a great judge. I agree, that is if you happened to be a white attorney. Payne is from the Louisiana side of the border. He is a sarcastic blue blooded racist. He don't like intelligent nonwhites in his court even if they may know the law as well as a law professor. So those who have said he is fair, has to be white, and an attorney. He see color first before the pleadings.

As good a magistrate judge as I've ever appeared in front of in over 30 years. Very bright. Handles a huge docket, including hundreds of patent cases. But as nice a guy as you'd hope to meet. If the parties treat him well, he's a prince of a guy. But he can be tough if they deserve it.
