I just want to thank Judge Lampe for not allowing the state of California to persecute a local bakery and baker for her Christian beliefs. Thank you.

170.6 Immediately if you get the chance. So biased, ignorant, rude, and impatient. Rumor is that he has a chip on his shoulder because he's not smart enough to be on the appellate panel. Has relationship with certain "local counsels" that will severely handicap you if you aren't one of them. Go for the other two judges if you can, Chapin or Clark, and you will much more fair hearing or trial.

Judge Lampe made the conduct of our trial actually enjoyable. He was a fair and practical judge, and when called upon, he was also good humored. I couldn't ask for a better judge.

Judge Lampe is considerate and polite. His experience as a civil attorney are reflected in the way he runs his courtroom and trials. He is a good judge.
