Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:1.0
Comments:
Terrible. Granted sj against a guy who was unlawfully arrested for not giving up his ID when the police lacked even reasonable suspicion. Entire event was recorded both audio and video. Almost literally copied and pasted the county's brief. Didn't grant oral. Claimed that because cop filed a sworn citation that it was true. This despite the fact that the cop admitted he fabricated the facts in the citation after the video came out in the criminal trial... This judge puts tyrant and tyrannical... Stay clear unless you are the government. Surely will be reversed in appeal.

Genuinely nice person off the bench, but pro-government on the bench. In his earlier days on the bench, he would sometimes (seemingly deliberately) make lawyers look bad by asking them questions about some technical matter and waiting until they looked it up, while implying that they should know the answer off the top of their heads. Has mellowed in that regard.

His tardiness is a fairly consistent issue (not that there is anything to be done about it).

Very slow to rule in civil cases. If you can agree to anything, that'll be quicker than waiting for His Honor to act.
