Definitely a company man. He took reassignment of our case against the City to issue a summary judgment motion that had no legal basis. [Redacted]

This judge is has such a lazy demeanor. Apparently he is dishonest too. Teaching ambulance chasers how to succeed. Oh my gosh- how filthy. Doesn't this fellow have any honor? Rid the swamp of judges such as Buckley. I guess he makes some bucks on the side- pathetic.

Found out that this judge is on the faculty of CAALA- which teaches Pl. Attorneys how to succeed at a trial. This appears then that this Judge is pro plantiff- something very illegal about this too. He should be disciplined. Any Def. atty. should immed. 170.6 this fellow.

I thought of him as a company man- rules for the City or State. Sort of lazy too. Not impressed. He is just waiting around for his pension.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA223
Even tempered, fair, and conducting a trial in his court is not stressful.
Tends to lean towards prosecution and is not one to strike anything.
