What others have said about Hon. Ronald L. Styn


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA10550
Styn used to be a good judge. Now he's just cranky and makes snap rulings without considering or listening to the full facts. .6

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA10452
Fair and friendly judge for stipulation agreement. Is not bias and generally like when parties work it out on their own without going to trial.

Look up "judicial temperment" in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of Judge Styn


Comment #: CA4783
Judge Styn is the worst judge that I have ever encountered. He allowed his personal (and entirely unfounded) animus towards me to stipulate that I would never be allowed to testify in his court room. In doing so, he denied a severely injured plaintiff a relevant witness.

One of the best judges in San Diego civil. Smart guy, fair, even-handed.
