Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 21076
The most biased judge that I've ever come across. Thank the lord we have Federal Courts of Appeals to overturn those cases where his judicial bias is most noticeable.

Civil Litigation - Private

Judge Brady is the epitome of a judicial officer: patient, reasonable, understanding, and fair. He treats everyone with respect and strives to make the right decision based on law. And he makes his decisions quickly!

I handled a civil matter in his court sometime back. Some attorney's say that he is too plaintiff's friendly, but he was pretty straightforward with his rulings and sided with my side (employer-defendant). I like his reasoning, as he gets to the point and doesn't bore you with scholarly discussions in his rulings that don't contribute to anything (ie, another Judge at the Middle District).

All in all, gave him high marks. Although maybe I'm biased since I've been fairly successful in his court.
