Litigant

Comment #: 32410
Rating:2.0
Comments:
I must have had judge Alonso's evil twin. It took him more than two years to render two decisions in an outstandingly straightforward case. Just about as lazy and disrespectful as he had can be of litigant's time, resources and stress. And I was the prevailing litigant....

I am an out-of-town lawyer that tried a civil case over a number of weeks before Judge Alonso. We prevailed - full disclosure - but I had only the best things to say about him even before this was the case. He's brilliant, calm, kind, works hard, was just on top of things during the trial. He's a pleasure to be in front of.

I have known Judge Alonso for a long time in my capacity as an assistant public defender when he was a state judge. I have known him to be fair and even handed. Politically he tends to be liberal. And he is a big UM Hurricane fan.
