Judge Tamietti cannot control his temper or his personal feelings. If someone upsets him he is known to fly into an inappropriate rage. I have had jurors tell me they could tell the judge hated me. While I also believe he is a chauvenist, he will fly off the handle at male attorneys the same as female. He is inconsistent in sentencing and judges criminal cases by the charges more so than by the evidence when it comes to settlement negotiations. He is very smart which is a shame because his knowledge is overshadowed by his lack of control of his temperament and demeanor. Beware in his courtroom because if you anger him he will take it out on your client.

Jusge Tamietti is a very good judge. He needs to keep his ego out of the courtroom and realize that he isn't trying the case. He can be snarky and has been known to reprimand both lawyers in a case rather than the one who's actually causing the problem. And he'll do it in front of the jury.

He won't get involved in settlement negotiations generally.

He is smart, prepared, timely, and a very hard worker. He believes in treatment, which is really nice. However, woe be it for the defendant who does something stupid that hurts someone if he's not an addict. In that situation, I'd use my .6 because you can bet he's sending them to prison.
