Hon. I. Leo Glasser (E.D.N.Y.)
When a judge moves to protect law enforcement and coddle the government, instead of upholding the Constitution our JUSTICE SYSTEM becomes a mockery of JUSTICE! This judge should be ashamed of himself in the way he rules in favor of the prosecutor Without even fully reviewing the cases. I personally doubt this judge even reads most of his briefs entirely. Investigating his cases his inconsistencies are out of the ordinary,he once gave a mobster five years even though the guy admitted to 19 murders,all because he assisted the prosecutor. This judge will had out even more time to defendants who didnt deserve the harsh sentence just to appease the government and law enforcement.

I don't personally hold a grudge against Judge Brooks, but I found him to be disturbing. He is utterly unpredictable. Have had several cases with him. On one, he completely dressed me down in front of everyone at a settlement conference for something incredibly petty. I was utterly shocked at the anger and hatred pouring from his eyes. It was so off-base that I was searching my mind, wondering if somehow I had offended him in the past. I could think of nothing. Classic small man moment. In another case, he did the same to opposing counsel. When I saw this the second time, I realized that he was mentally unstable. Seriously.

Had him for an early neutral evaluation conference. Was a complete jerk to my clients. While in conference, he said that my clients case wasn't worth crap, while my clients were in the room. Utterly unprofessional.

Hon. Karen L. Stevenson (C.D.Cal.)
I had a civil case in which opposing counsel and I stipulated to have Judge Stevenson act as the judge through the entire trial. A week before trial, I was a little nervous, wondering if maybe I shouldn’t have picked a magistrate to handle the entire case. My concerns were assuaged before trial. We had a 2 ½ hour pretrial conference, discussing every conceivable pretrial issue. Judge Stevenson came through in the clutch. She was everything that you want a judge to be. She is smart, knows her facts, knows her law, was very fair, and was not afraid to rule against someone if the law was against them. Also, she wasn’t afraid to rule against someone who was pushing a legal argument that didn’t quite fit. She stuck to her guns, and wasn’t afraid to say “no” when a “no” was required. Best of all, she had no judicial arrogance. She simply rolled up her sleeves and went to work with both attorneys, trying to get all issues resolve before trial. Very, very refreshing. Our case ended up settling on the eve trial, but I would have been 1000% comfortable using her as the trial judge.

Might be the worst judge I have appeared in front of in state or federal court in decades of practice around this country and abroad. Cannot think of anyone worse.

Horrible judge. Don't think she has read the constitution or Bill of rights. She really should.

His ideas about Lexis Nexis Law is so bad that like Nike He should Just Do It. After all he is un Reliable on transporting valid legal opinion to his courtroom so we are not Free To Move About The Country. Unless he has a Goooooaaaaalllll in mind, no one will say Let’s Get Ready To Rumble in his courtroom. Even the Artist Formally Known As Prince would be turning in his grave.

I had a great experience with this judge. He knew my case backwards and forwards, and was tough but respectful on both sides.

Hon. Andrew G. Schopler (S.D.Cal.)
Judge Schopler is young and learning. I've had him on a couple civil cases, and he has not been much help at settlement conferences. He's got a great attitude and likely will grow to be an excellent judge. At times I feel as though he can be easily misguided at times in his rulings. Hopefully, he grows as a jurist. But, again, as far as his attitude and availability goes, he's fabulous. When I've had him a few more times, then I'll submit another review.
