Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA3101
Rating:3.9
Comments:
Generally good laidback temperament, humble and nice. But he is utterly ruthless in clearing his docket of cases. God help you if he decides he doesn't like your case. He will refuse joint requests for trial continuance, cut voir dire to 30 minutes, order cause challenges be heard in front of the jury rather than in chambers or at sidebar, threaten to continue trial for 1 year, etc. He also appears to hate discovery disputes. He will deny motions to compel wholesale without having read any of the briefs. Not the worst judge by any means, but he can be your worst enemy if he decides he wants your case out of his courtroom, no matter how meritorious the case or client.
