If you are assigned this Judge, state that you Object under CPP 170.6 and you will be assigned a new Judge. It will be the BEST move you will ever make in your court matter.

Comment #: CA5271
He does not waste court time on useless discussion. Requires and encourages settlement where it is possible. Highly intelligent logical decisions. Cuts to the point. Mathematically inclined. Forget trying to manipulate this judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA3700
Extremely biased. Refuses to read motions prior to taking the bench. Refused to provide legal basis for denials or states inapplicable reason.
Abrubt and curt refusing to answer any questions. Repeatedly states untrue facts in general.

He is a very fair judge - I have had family law cases and criminal cases in front of him and I have always found him to be fair.
