What others have said about Hon. Derrick Kahala Watson


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 33265
Clearly not reading litigant's filings and not supervising his law clerks. Protects government agencies against lawsuits even when they are culpable to clear his calendar. Ignores strong legal precedence without regard to inconsistencies due to obvious personal biases. Still believes he is employed by the US Attorney's office.


Comment #: 24583
Rating:Not Rated
Obama-appointed crank who advances political agenda rather than follow the laws.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 24250
Believes he can make decisions that impact the entire Country based on his own personal Political Bias and believes he is above the United States Constitution and Our President! This Judge MUST be removed from the BENCH!
