What others have said about Hon. David S. Cohn



Comment #: CA5038
BEWARE: He is not a fair, competent judge. Watched two other cases (briefly) and witnessed bias against professional women (attorneys and litigants), was rude, did not listen to the testimony of witnesses unless it suited him, fraternized with opposing counsel AND witness of opposing side during breaks and lunch. Watch for that!

Rude, insulting, arrogant, and incompetent. Shouldn't be sitting on the bench, belongs in the corner like all bullies!

Comment #: CA2292
Won't let lawyers speak, cuts you off even when you are responding to a question he posed. Dreams of issues that are not related to the matters at hand. Makes things overly complicated and requires unnecessary work. Never get the sense that he is trying to be fair to anyone. He is hard of hearing and always seem to insinuate that you are unprepared or lying. Might be a nice guy off the bench, but it is clearly time for him to move on.

Generally an average judge. Gets flustered when confronted with new law, particularly when he thinks he tends to know the area of the law but doesn't. Relies on his clerk a lot.
