CHANGE JUDGES ASAP BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE. EVEN A BAD JUDGE IN JURY TRIALS. VERY PRO BIG BUSINESS AND HARD ON SMALL. ONE SIDED WILL NOT ALLOW EVIDENCE FROM THE SIDE HE DISLIKES IN. HE IS VERY PRO WHO YOU KNOW AND DON'T KNOW IN THE BUSINESS AND POLITICS WORLD.

I tried a lengthy case in this court, and I must say that Judge Mackey is a fair judge. He is even-handed and accommodating to all sides. He has common sense and is pleasant.

Judge Mackey is a no-nonsense, get-to-the-point-and-don't-try-to-snow-me judge. He will listen to your arguments, if you have something useful to add. But he has lots of experience, and he has heard it all. He is not going to put up with any flawed technical arguments that lack substance. Get to the point quickly and clearly.

It's not that he's too old--he was bad right out of the gate. Flipping a coin would produce better rulings on trial objections. He's pleasant enough--just not very good.

Judge Mackey is the worst Judge in Los Angeles History the guy needs to retire. Warning he is for big corporations while letting the small guy fry! He hung us out to dry and never gave the average guy a chance. he's for big business period!

I like his courtroom and staff. This judge is outstanding. He is impartial and brillant. He gives justice to all. If you have a case with him, be happy, because you'll be glad. He has handled many cases, including the Carol O'Connor case, the Bob Barker case, the Paulina Rubio case, and many more.
