In a multi-defendant criminal case, he was careful and diligent to ensure that justice was achieved. He was compassionate where appropriate and tough when it was called for. I may not have agreed with his results but know that they were fair.

Had 3+ day civil jury trial. Treated lawyers for both sides with respect. Ran a very nice court room. Easy to work with, and always gave counsel their opportunity to be heard.

Judge Rebreno folds to the winds. He will take the word of law enforcement over prosecutors.

From commencement of the action to the time of verdict, Judge Robreno was exceeedingly biased in favor of the defense. He made every ruling in favor of the defense, even denying a 'routine' motion to compel discovery. Astoundingly biased. He made absolutely no effort to settle the case. Your best advice as plaintiff's counsel - get out of the case by settling it and doing so early on.

Another of arlen specter appointees (along with E.D. Judge Michael Baylson)on the E.D. of PA bench. If your client finds him or herself in that camp then he or she should have smooth sailing from the moment of case inception until the very bitter end. Wonder what his law clerk thinks as the judge has him partake in authoring intellectually dishonest off the wall opinions? NOT a judge for the people of this Commonwealth during this post world economic crisis. A judge for big law firms that put him on the bench.

Currently handling all federal asbestos-related personal injury claims and moving that mountain along nicely. Innovative and fair.

defense bias

why can't we get judges on the federal bench who are evenhanded?
