Judge Simpson is a good trial judge, who knows he is the judge and you are not. You don't want to push him to hard because he will push back. If you play by the rules, he will not get in your dish.

A hardworking judge. Not afraid to tackle controversial issues and go with his gut. Former civil attorney from local firm. I've seen him in both civil and criminal settings. I like this judge.
