Very little respect for religious liberty and individual rights. Seemed to misunderstand (or devalue) basic principles of natural rights.

It appears that this judge doesn't like to work too hard. While he seemed to have a grasp of the issues, he took the easy way out to clear his docket.

It's not clear to me whether he even reads papers before he takes the bench. I only gave 2's because 1's seem harsh. It's odd how some judges pick their spots to be openly and blatantly biased one way. This one is an odd judge.
