Is not competent to sit as a judge. Has frequent fits of anger. Doesn't consider evidence... during court and testimony he's staring off into space. He may have some medical issues that needs to be addressed. Also would help if he knew some laws instead of his own opinion. This would cut out alot of needless appeals

This guy is a real jerk! He is always 20 to 30 minutes late for court, both in the morning and after lunch. Punishes lawyers nd their clients by rescheduling cases after 6:00 pm and on Saturday and Sunday. Frequently storms off the bench for no reason. Has ordered juveniles held for more than a month pending litigation.
