Hon. Joel Schneider (D.N.J.)
Schneider is overtly mysogonistic. If there was an effective way to raise this issue within the federal judiciary hierarchy, I would but there is not one. Women lawyers, watch out when before Schneider. I do find when you push back, he immediately retreats. I think he knows he has a problem.

I really enjoy appearing before him. Very evenhanded and scholarly. Works hard. He is not a 9 to 5 judge. Very polite and moves his cases along.

Hon. William H. Orrick III (N.D.Cal.)
I have seldom been more impressed, in 30+ years, with a judge's temperament. He was always courteous, yet firm when he needed to be. He was extremely hard-working, and was able to rule intelligently on motions filed at 5:30 am during a multi-week trial before the jury came in at 8:00 am. His opinions were well-reasoned and researched. And -- to respond to the invariable cynics -- no, my clients did not prevail, nor were all of Judge Orrick's rulings go our way. In fact, quite a few did not.

Hon. Otis D. Wright, II (C.D.Cal.)
June 10,2019 was my mothers sentencing they gave her 60 days to turn herself in which was on August 9. During her sentencing he never gave her a hearing. July 31st my mom had motion files to get a hearing from the judge he accepted a hearing on July 31st, which we thought was so nice of him to do and unexpected.. my sister and I cried of happiness. Later on, August 5 he denies the hearing once again. Like I said he is very demented and likes playing with peoples lives. What kind of judge would play such games like that with someones life. So messed up in so many ways .. We were in just complete shock at this point, at what kind of man he is.

Hon. Otis D. Wright, II (C.D.Cal.)
Judge Otis D. Wright, II is possibly one of the worst judges in this damn world. If you end up with this judge good luck to you because he is really unfair and discriminating. He was so so racist and discriminating to my mom who is an Armenian. He never listening to our hearing and proof and just sentenced her. My moms prosecutor suggested 10 years sentencing to my mom, the judge turned around and said " I think that is too harsh for a woman " right after that we have a 15 minute break. We get back from our break and he literally sentences my mom to 10 years in federal prison This was her very first crime.This judge is very bipolar, all I can say is he doesn't deserve to be a judge. Any comments that you see that he's apparently a good judge is not true and very fake! The bad comments outweighs the 2-4 good ones that I can say are pretty fake comments about him. Honestly good luckkkkk to you if you end up with this judge. He is one demented, maniac, judge. Not even over exaggerating one bit. Word for word on my moms transcript Judge Wright said " Yeah, when you enter 5 (d) it's one of the circles of hell. 5 (d) is his court room btw. He seriously plays games with peoples lives. One demented bipolar man.

This judge is the poster child as to why term limits are needed for federal judges.

Speed at huge quality expense. Imperious. Seems a good person but incredibly tactless and inappropriate comments in court. Re-traumatized my client and while everyone else saw it, she didn't.
