Litigant

Comment #: CA3899
Rating:Not Rated
Comments:
The Appeals Court is going to have to hire more staff to handle the caseload after people start appealing his bonehead decisions. After reviewing the transcript and the filings, I have to wonder if he was even in the same courtroom. (Even though he gave me what I asked for, his pretense that he was doing me a favor offends me.)

Civil Litigation - Private

One of the reasons I generally favor OC Central over LA Central these days. He's one of a sizeable group of very fine judges presiding at OC Central. Why LA Central is top heavy with an inordinate amount of terrible judges is beyond me.

Orange County Superior Court needs more judges like Judge McEachen. He is among the best judges for handling business and civil litigation matters.
