Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 20521
Rating:9.5
Comments:
Hard working magistrate who has on several occasions been a finalist for apppointment to the district bench, a post of which he is deserving. Even temperament, well-prepared and scupulously fair to all parties. Very low-key, with a good sense of humor. Not the greatest legal scholar, but works hard to master the issues in the case.

An excellent judge. Great temperament. Very even-handed. He'll make the government put witnesses on in bond hearings and will allow some meaningful cross. He'll make the government produce an agent for bond hearings who actually knows something about the facts of the case. He won't reflexively detain people just because the gov't asks him to. He is polite and respectful. The guy is a pleasure to appear in front of.
