Friendly guy, but just another prosecutor wearing a robe.

He is one of the least intelligent judges I have ever encountered. He does not know even the most basic law. He literally did not know what Griffin error was in a trial where the baby DA was reading the closing argument from the Griffin case (and did not know it was a bad case for the DA). Rodriguez had no idea what Griffin was and he was a city prosecutor. He is an embarrassment.

Judge Rodriguez can be pleasant and intemperate almost at the same time. If you have a legal argument, be careful. To put it mildly, when he's at the plate, the outfielders move in.

This judge is very pro-prosecutor. He is a former prosecutor himself, and it shows. He is especially biased towards female prosecutors. A very, very conservative judge.
