Time to retire. Poor judicial temperament, impatient, rude, disinterested, nasty. Worn out.

Judge Wilkinson is a joy to work with. Very flexible with scheduling, and has a wonderful temperment. He is very aggressive in settlement negotiations, but respectful of your position. He does not mince words or beat around the bush. He demands professionalism, but he gives it in spades.

Wilkinson displayed a many instances of a prejudice to a pro se litigant. Wilkinson deied the Pro se litigant's motion to withdraw consent,which he based based on 5 insistances of prejudicial statements and errors during first preliminary conference.Wilkinson displayed a predisposition to his opinion of the case without seeing any evidence, and clearly gave the Defendan's pleadings weight even though the Pro se Plaintiff provided evidence that the defendant's arguments and facts were in error and and lack of merit. Wilkinson failed to properly consider or apply presidents presented, or explain his reason for his decision.

He is thoughtful and attentive to your arguments; even if you are arguing a novel position, he will consider it carefully. He strives to be fair in settlement negotiations and if you take good-faith positions, he will reward you by working hard to make the other side meet you halfway. A word to the wise: DO NOT file anything late, miss any deadlines, come to his courtroom unprepared, or show up at a settlement conference "without any authority." You will not like what happens.
