Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 23536
He has a good heart. He is just without any ability. He doesn't understand logic. He doesn't understand language. He doesn't understand law. He is the last person qualified to be a judge. To read his opinions is to escape reality. He doesn't understand that words take their meaning from context and that a strike in baseball is not the same as a strike in bowling. Who picks these guys?

This district judge is senile and should get off the bench. Judge Lew does not care about the merits and
will be co attorney for a government defendant and engages in fraud.

Once Judge Lew makes up his mind, he clearly is not dissuaded by either the facts or the law, even if his mistakes are brought to his attention.
