I felt he treated me fairly, even though I lost my civil case (I should have won, but there was "no precedent" for a ruling in my favor).

Civil Litigation - Private

An embarrassment to the bench. If you're not going to take motions seriously, step down from the bench or at least refer them to a magistrate judge who might care. And fix your clerk's many typos before signing the opinion.

I am not a lawyer nor a politician just a plain old loyal US citizen. I cannot figure out how Judge Linares entertained the request by Mr. DeLuca to allow bail to Ron Manzo to attend a Christmas party? Is justices being served? Criminal charges mean nothing to our court system?
