Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA4957
I have never seen such prejudice and shenanigans. He also allowed a lawyer to get away with games, improper contact with members of the jury, improper dress, and improper questions.

Positively one of the shining lights on the San Diego bench! Brilliant, friendly and un-biased -- all the qualities of a terrific jurist.

Judge Barton is a credit to the Superior Court bench. He lets the lawyers try the case and truly stands in the middle. We could use more young people on the bench who have worked in trials in front of Barton and learned from him.
