Rating:Not Rated
Tough but ultimately fair.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 3800
Judge Jordan is well-connected politically, but he is an abomination. Tends to side with corporate criminals, police who violate civil liberties, and big corporations (DuPont, Kodak, etc.) that fund his benefactors.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 3545
Very fair-minded but will let you know if he is displeased with actions of either party in the litigation. Expects high degree of professionalism from attorneys.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: 2812
On his way to the third circuit. Tough on litigants. Clearly became impatient with the other side in my case, and that caused him to steamroll our schedule even though it prejudiced my client. Purports to hate summary judgment motions, but grants them now and again. We settled before trial, but I would have liked to try a case in his courtroom. I would have been beaten up in the process, but I believe he would have been fair.
