This guy is the worst judge I have ever come across in 28 years. Lazy, arrogant, disrespectful. Rings every bell for being a bad jurist. Stay away.

He is a scary guy -- quite prone to viciousness. You'd better have your ducks in a straight row when you appear before him -- the man is not patient and does not abide fools. Also, I think he picks sides somewhat based on his personal impression of you (and/or your clients and witnesses). All that being said, I found him to be rather sharp on the issues. During the course of a week-long trial, he jumped in several times with fairly incisive questions, which indicated to me that he was paying close attention and had done his homework. If you can find ways to stroke his ego (e.g., by making him the "hero" of the case), more the better.

Arrogant, lazy, egomaniacal - this man should never have been made a judge. He sucks up and kicks down. An embarrassment to the Maine judiciary.

Unsuited by temperament for judicial office. His ego is either very large or very small.
