Judge Campbell is always prepared, respectful of the litigants, and tries to reach the right result. One couldn't do better than Judge Campbell in the District of Utah.

This Judge is living proof why this country needs term limits and accountability for Judges. She couldn't find her way out of a paper bag. Obtuse would be a great description for her. As for "evenhandedness," she as uneven as a dirt road! She DOES NOT reasearch nor look at the details! What a lousy piece of C**P!

I couldn't disagree more. Judge Campbell is by far one of the hardest working judges I have ever encountered. Based on my experiences, she is always well prepared for hearings, having carefully considered the briefs well in advance of the hearing and obviously having conducted her own research. She is very bright and grasps concepts quickly. She also demands that attorneys are precise, crossing their t's and dotting their i's, if you will. Moreover, she has a lovely disposition. To the extent that the other attorney says that Judge Campbell is "not terribly sharp," it might be that this attorney made poor arguments or didn't make the arguments clearly. If nuances are lost on a judge, more often than not, it is because the attorney has failed to actually make those nuances clear. There's only so much that even the brightest judge can do to make up for poor briefing, poor analysis, and poor argument. Judge Campbell is a gem, especially in the criminal context.

Judge Campbell is nice, but not terribly sharp. She has difficulty grasping the delicate nuances of the law, and her opinions are not particularly careful.

All in all, she's a fairly pleasant person to work with, but will need difficult concepts carefully broken down for her in the briefs.
