This judge should be put away in prison for life. He is responsible for the murder of Mimie Cowen. This is what happens when you get a leftist nut case as a judge. Purely irresponsible. The murderer should have been evicted. Uncaring dumb fool of a fake judge. All of the other comments are negative. This judge sounds like another worthless lawyer who begged to be a judge so that he could score big when it came to pension time and also that he gets a regular large paycheck rather than working like the rest of us. Off to prison for this hooligan!

Comment #: CA10707
The most biased judge I ever met. Rules for his reelection contributors with no regard to the law. Believe he is not qualified to be a judge. Rude and harsh.

Forms opinion with no regard to evidence.

He is lazy. Lacks basic understanding of law. I also agree that he is rude. He will arbitrarily disregard your expert's opinion without any basis (like inquiring into the expert's qualification or the assumptions that the expert relied upon).
