Comment #: CA31629
Yeah very bright. What is bright in reality is the gardeners that clean up the gardens, hills and streets in this hot, smoggy and dusty city. The ones that sweat daily for low pay. This is considered "bright" not some pansy like this judge who most likely only sweats walking from his car to his front door! This judge really rubs me wrong along the rest of co-judgies with the big attitudes who sit almighty in their chambers looking down at the little people. This place need a good human clean up.

Not sure what these prejudiced idiots are talking about. He is very bright and industrious and gets to the point instantly without any discernible bias. Their comments just show what a dumping ground this site is for people who want to tarnish judges’ reputations, either because they are clinically unhappy morons or plaintiffs’ lawyers.

This drippy snotty nosed creep doesn't deserve a dollar. Fake judge should be cleaning up garbage on the freeways instead of sitting in an a/c bldg. twiddling his thumbs. What a joke. This is why Los Angeles in a big fat slump due to deadbeats like this goulish sludge.

A complete dunce! What does he know about daily suffering of the small business person in Calif- namely Los Angeles? He knows nothing. He sits like a "wizard" in the Appellate chambers which is decorated in a manner to intimidate the general public. It's something out of "Oz." He renders decisions that are plain vicious and demeaning- set to destroy the average Joe who runs an average business. This court is so wrong and needs to be dismantled. Time for this justice and so many others to be booted from their position by government means. This fellow is really out of touch with reality. Time for him to get a "real" job and get some dirt under his pristine finger nails?
