No nonsense, fair and even handed. Does the research. You better be right on the law. A great judge on a complex case.

The Honorable B. Waugh Crigler is an excellent magistrate judge with an incredibly active civil docket. He has overseen many incredibly complex cases over the years.

Strong Falwell-type conservative religious beliefs. Hence one might view him as "good" when it comes to keeping the family together, etc. But when he has a conflict or bias, even a strong one, he will not reveal it. He often talks ex parte. Not fond of women as lead counsel, as I've heard complaints from a number of women.

Waugh truly believes that the rebuttable presumption against bond is rebuttable -- what a concept! Bring the mom -- he likes to release the defendant to his mom.
