Judge Legg is an excellent draw in a civil case. It is a pleasure to appear before him. He is courteous, fairminded, and possessed of a good sense of humor. He takes a practical approach to cases and he is even handed. Judge Legg is very smart and well educated. A top federal judge.

I represented a plaintiff in a civil, race and sex discrimination case against a private corporation.
Judge Legg scheduled an all day settlement conference.
He was admirably well prepared.
He was courteous to everyone present during the day long negotiations.
He stayed overtime, until 6:00 p.m. assisting counsel and the parties with settlement negotiations.
This case was my first and only case assigned to his docket.
It was gratifying experience to work before such an excellent judge.

A pure right wing hack who will ignore the most settled of legal precedents to further his ideology. His pro-business, anti civil rights stance his well-reflected in his decisions, as are his financial contributions to Pres. George H.W. Bush.
