Comment #: CA27260
Sleazy judge who happened to be a sleazy lawyer not so long ago. He definitely has personal problems and it shows in his courtroom habits. 170.6 and don't look back. You won't be sorry. Poor Stanley Mosk. There are slim pickings in this courthouse.

In representing civil plaintiffs, I've seldom been assigned such an understanding and compassionate judge. I've had many judges who have a tendency to favor corporate entities. I think they do this unconsciously. Not Judge Mohr. He allowed us the time and resource for full presentation. A degree of credit is due to Judge Mohr in helping the jury understand the case and to deliver an award for full damages.

You realize why people leave Calif. when you run across a Judge like Mohr. Don't even know how he got this position because it's clear he runs a messy disorganized court. Such a mean and very unlikable sort. Very disturbed and mentally troubled individual. Should not
be a Judge for the sake of mankind. Admits he doesn't know a lot about general law. This is your judge for crying out loud!!A judge that should be going back to law school to LEARN.

Comment #: CA22548
Lousy and lazy. Has issues. A definite ding. He does has a mean streak. Does not read papers and then gets mad when he has brain freeze and has lost his thought process. Something is definitely wrong with him.

This judge is a disorganized moron. One court clerk told me when he was removed from complex litigation that all 400 cases in his court were messed up. In another case he gave 90 trial days when the same case took three days to trial in Georgia. He has disjointed hearings months apart so he forgets everything he learned in the last hearing and complex cases such as class certification. He has a mean streak in his vindictive little mind. This is true even though you never did anything to him. He definitely plays favorites and he is an absolutely terrible judge which is probably why he was removed from complex litigation. He shouldn’t handle anything more than traffic tickets and even then his temperament would harm someone.

I tried a non-jury, limited jurisdiction case before him with issues of first impression. He fit our case into his schedule over several days, a few hours a day, which, while not convenient, got the job done. Because of the relatively small amount involved, there was no court reporter. He was very attentive, took copious notes on the computer, and often asked probing questions of both sides while not taking over the case. He quickly grasped the relatively complex issues (notwithstanding the small amount), asked for briefing on the legal points that were significant and as to which there was no clear answer, and came to a fair result. While he did rush the case a bit, that was understandable because the case was a limited jurisdiction case that he was fitting in while another, larger case was being prepared to call in a jury panel. Overall, he seemed very fair, and I and my client were pleased to have had the case assigned to him.

Has the best grasp of the authorities of any judge I have encountered.

If he reads a case you cite, he will know it better than you.

Not the best in terms of managing his entire docket, due to the fact that he takes a long time with each case... However, you couldn't ask for a more fair jurist.

Wades into the facts/merits of the case at the first status conference. Be prepared to discuss and provide documents to him. Will not allow you to file anything before that status conference, including a petition to compel arbitration. Has taken the position openly that arbitrators are not qualified to decide class action issues, which is totally wrong legally. He will incorrectly attempt to retain that issue for himself. He is going to get reversed on that that point shortly.

Very thorough and consciencous. Makes a clear record as to what he's deciding and why. He does take things under submission (and no one ever likes to wait), but when he does render a decision, it's the right one.

Will occassionally dig into the briefs but has a hard time making a decision.
