I sat in his courtroom as a visitor and was horrified as to the "halls of justice" demeanor. Firstly his clerk is a mean scowling miserable creature. Next, the case before the judge was just a sham and should have been dismissed. It's appalling how a judge can permit this raid on humanity to be permitted. I hope that Trump if he has the ability to do so, shuts down these halls of injustice. It's disgusting how these filthy low life lawyers are permitted to rob and rob and rob decent unsuspecting litigants. Shameful. Yet this alleged judges allow it.

This judge was assigned as a settlement judge on the eve of trial. He got it settled and did so with a sense of purpose and with civility. He is a long cause trial judge and I would predict he is very fair in the way that he presides over trials. No reason not to use him at all.
