This is the weirdest court I have come across, and I have been in front of this judge several times. He is unpleasant, strange, and runs this court procedureally(along with the DA's) in an odd manner and with little patience. It is as if you are being "hometowned" even if you practice routinely in the courthouse and the county.

Judge Schwartz is a very odd man. He literally yells at defendants from the bench. He really is not fit for the bench. The results are sometimes reasonable but the process is beneath the dignity of the judiciary. An intemperate buffoon on most days -- very quick to reach a decision and then most inflexible.
