should be disbarred


Comment #: CA13934

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA10664
Judge Freeland is deliberate and does not make impulsive rulings. In private practice he was insurance defense attorney but he does not demonstrate a bias on the bench. He was transferred to civil bench because he did not grant prosecution's every wish and therefore was routinely challenged by DA office.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA10641
One of the last very fair judges who takes the time to carefully read your papers and is prepared with very pointed questions.


Comment #: CA7659
I have observed, Judge John D. Freeland in 6 different cases, from eviction, civil harassment, small claims...etc.. From the cases I have observed, he asks questions, and likes the answers to be short sweet and to the point. I have seen him empty the court room from everyone involved in the case, an have the witness come in one by one, he will ask questions, or have the people act out the situation, use court room objects as the object involved. I have seen him go to his chambers and make a decision, and also make a decision later that day, where it comes in the mail. Each decision, was through, and worked out....very fair...very polite...but direct, don't go to the left or the right...He is FAIR, very punctual, with options.
