I believe he is an incredibly good judge. I tried a case before him, and am not a Kansas lawyer. He treated me very well and was very evenhanded. He is my top ten judges.

Absolutely a gentleman and a scholar. Treats litigants, lawyers and jurors the way you would want to be treated.

I was absolutley satisfied with Judge Belot and the way that he conducted his trial. He was great with the jury - the best I have seen of any judge.

Comments:
this judge has terrible decorum and an extreme disrespect for the constitutional rights of the citizens. He especially has a great disdain for our incarcerated citizenry. He is a terrible excuse for a judge, biased and egotistical, and should be permanently barred from the practice of law in any respect.

He does a running commentary on the status of the trial and the validity of witnesses in open court. Makes statements in court that will bias the jury. Rules out valid evidence. In short he decides the verdict and not the jury in the way he conducts court.
