One of the better judges. He has a good disposition & treats people ok & seems fair minded. He reads your papers but keep it straight forward and not lengthy or esoteric. He seems like he doesn't change his tentative too much even after taking under submission. Excellent courtroom staff.

I have been in front of Judge Moreton a handful of times. He handles an odd array of matters and seems to know the law in the areas he handles. His disposition is generally quite pleasant although he can be curt and lose patience at times. I don't believe he always get it right (but no judge does). But he will let you make your arguments and listen, which is more than you can say about a lot of judges.

This judge is not fair. He makes up his mind and does not listen. So much for a fair hearing. He does not have the temperament to be a judge. He does not even care if his decision can leave a person unable to pay their bills and homeless, while he sits on his throne, looking down at the people in his court. God bless you if you have to appear in his court.
