2221. party to case (pro se)

Never met a judge so law smart, and could think, site case laws, and judge at the same time. Witty, wonderful, and fair. remarkable human being and judge.


8786. attorney (private practice)

Never met a judge so rude, so arrogant and so wrong on the law. He specializes in side bars where he coaches your adversary. Naturally this never makes it on to the record. Strives to humiliate and sanction any one on his bad side. Check out comments on Robing Room site.
