Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:9.5
Comments:
I've had two cases with him, and he is a very fair judge. He granted a motion for summary judgment that I filed for the plaintiffs in a civil rights case. I was very happy with him. (Also, his clerk is very practical.)

Comments:
Fantastic judge in criminal. Willing to look at the humanity of all sides -- victims, witnesses, and even defendants. It is early in his judicial career, but he has already earned a great reputation.

Comments:
Judge Carney is an honest, non-ideological conservative. His outstanding trait is that he really believes in fairness, perhaps harking back to his days as an All-American football star for UCLA. He is polite, follows the law, and likes lawyers. Though he seems to have an affinity for government, he keeps it in check and seems always to do the right thing. He is an extraordinary judge who takes his job, but not himself, very seriously.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comments:
Judge Carney is a stalwart with the courage to identify civil conspiracy taking place in Orange County matrimonial courtrooms.

However, he is quick to dismiss cases that allege civil rights violations if the genesis of the case is a matrimonial action - no matter how egregious the violation: off the record custodial modifications done with no basis in law or fact for example.
