Comment #: 33690
Made a snap judgment of denial of a 35 page pleading in an hour. Did not read the Complaint, save for a superficial skim.

Involved in Civil settlement talks. Magistrate favors government position. Does not question veracity of positions taken by DOJ. Likes to talk about his time prosecuting cases. Tends to use trite comments which do not lend themselves to settlement positions. I take it he is new and needs some coaching perhaps instruction to overcome this. At this point, will favor the government and appears to be pro prosecution very heavily. May mature later.
