Great judge. Have not yet tried a case in front of him. But in law and motion matters he reads what is submitted. He treats both sides with respect. I look forward to being in front of him again.

Judge Medel is new to the bench and a superb, bright, thoughtful, fair judge, who explains his points clearly and engages in genuine dialogue during oral argument. My case was decided on summary judgment, but he was presiding over a jury trial in another matter, and I watched him receive a jury's verdict. He handled it exceedingly well, and is clearly a skilled trial judge who himself has extensive trial experience. I do not think you can get a better draw in SD Superior Court.
