Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CA5710
Rating:4.4
Comments:
This Judge seems very nice to all attorneys; but is very pro big defense. He also does not read any papers, he weighs them and who ever has the heaviest and longest pleadings will win; so attach as much junk as you can to your documents.

Comments:
He can't make tough decisions, and does not always follow the law (possibly because it is not within his area of understanding). He is almost too accommodating to the parties -- as if he is hopeful that the matter never comes to a head, thus requiring him to weigh in with an opinion.

He is a horrible judge, and should be banned from the California court system, the way that he screwed the citizens of Palmdale over the Voting Rights Act.

Judge Mooney is the most unbiased and fair judge that I have appeared before. He is smart and well-prepared. He ruled both for me and against me -- which does not change the fact that he is one of the best judges in L.A.

Totally unfair to plaintiff side. Awarded defendant excessive amount of attorney fees and gave the appearance of collusion with the defense attorney.
