What others have said about Hon. Emmet G. Sullivan



Comment #: 23666
Has no concept of what the law is, extremely conservative, favors the government, especially when the government is wrong, and tends to give his personal opinion in rulings as oppose to matter of law. Why is he still on the bench? A waste of a robe.

Judge Sullivan is very results-oriented. He seems willing to disregard basic legal principles and settled precedent to reach his desired outcome. He is also often very slow to rule.

Comment #: 11450
Judge Sullivan is a fair minded and impartial judge. He rules without regard to which side he thinks should win. He is very active in encouraging parties to settle disputes. He accommodates the parties on scheduling and balances the need to keep his docket moving with the need to complete discovery and resolve dispositive motions. He is one of the better judges to appear before in civil cases.

Judge Sullivan is a one-man legislature, out to do good for whomever he favors, without regard for the law.
