Bad judge. Makes laws on the bench. Looks polite and nice, but is actually much nastier than he looks.

Hard to sway him at all. Set on his ideas. Pro-prosecution.

Sat in the courtroom today for most of the day in room C-48. Heard about 10 cases. I admire his patience when hearing what the defendant (or plantiff) has to say. In some cases I felt he was almost too nice. One lady had a 90-day suspension on her CA state bar license and he was making sure she wasn't violating this and acting as a defendant and not an attorney while she was defending a small claims suit against herself. Then she broke down and needed two more weeks to prepare because of stress and "mental illness." He granted it! I feel sorry for any plantiff that has to come back again just to have their case heard.

Had a civil trial with him within the last month. The judge handled the case superbly, even though it was complicated. Very fair and even-handed.
