Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA49578
Judge McKaig is an excellent trial judge. Treats both sides evenly but firmly. Very smart and intuitive grasp of complex legal issues. Generally patient and attentive but properly insistent on valuing jury's time and moving things along. Although verdict was against my client, I had zero gripes about this judge's management of the trial which was a first.

I've had this judge in 2 separate civil matters. Although I prevailed in both matters, she did not help the cases. She seems very intelligent, however she allows emotional issues to override logic and legal precedent. When a statute says must, it is not discretionary. She makes promises to the litigants in front of her that she cannot keep to try to "make everyone happy." Should not have been elevated to the bench. Would be better as a mediator.
