Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA10880
Rating:4.3
Comments:
Bizarre judge. After I objected that he had materially misstated a defendant's priors, he called me to a side bar and said, "This is criminal court and we don't fight so hard for our clients here."

I was representing a mentally ill homeless person pro bono and my practice was 98% civil litigation.

Later, he accused me of not being pro bono but that I was being paid from a trust fund because the defendant's father must be wealthy for me to put on a vigorous defense. His speculation, which was 100% wrong, gave me insight into his mentality -- he could not conceive of an attorney giving a poor person the same representation that he would give his "Beverly Hills" clients.

The DA wanted him to just dismiss the case saying that my client was a "stop magnet," which she described as someone the police stop for no reason other than they think they will find something. Homeless people often carrying something to protect themselves, which then is charged as a concealed weapon. He wouldn't. Rand was playing prosecutor, which is not the correct role for a judge.
