Comment #: CA3104
McCormick is one of the all time worst judges I have ever been in front of. He acts like everyone is wasting his time and it's obvious he hates being there. He will not assist in plea bargains and just stares at you when you are discussing your client's case. He does not understand the law and will not take the time to look it up or allow the attorneys to argue the law. He just shuts you down. He needs to be removed from the bench because he has absolutely no business being up there. He is in some hot water where he was assisting his present wife in her divorce proceedings. This just shows you he doesn't care at all about fairness and impartiality.

Far and above the worst of all trial courts I have handled criminal cases, both state and federal, in during my legal career. I agree with the commentator who said "it is impossible to receive a fair trial in his courtroom."

A nice man and pleasant to lawyers and litigants. But he is ferociously dedicated to convicting criminal defendants and will make legal rulings accordingly, even when they are off-the-wall enough to risk reversal. He has a special sensitivity about cases involving a challenge to the honestey of police officers or any threat to their well-being.

All defense lawyers should avoid this judge. He is so prosecution-oriented in his thinking and rulings that it is impossible to receive a fair trial.
