Has been a judge almost 50 years and thinks he knows everything and unfortunately shows it. Sadly he is usually right. He is demanding but has a good heart.

Outstanding judge. A role model of what a federal judge should be. If you are prepared, he will be more than fair.

Not the venue for consumer or civil rights litigation; court on top of cases, but tends to view statutes favoring small bucks litigants as suggestions.
