It doesn’t get any worse that this guy. Incompetent Issue a 170.6 every time you draw this clown. The worst of the worse

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA24328
Based on my experience here is what I can say:

He is very pro defense. He will rule against plaintiff any chance he gets. He’s extremely bias and rude. He is not impartial at all. Every plaintiff should ding him.


Comment #: CA12081
I've only had two court cases in my life and both were in front of this judge.
In both cases, I had empirical written confessions from the other parties of wrong doing. This judge ruled against me both time- to the point that all attorney's scratch their heads over it. I am very active in my political party- to the point that I consider it my religion. He is very active in political party. He should recuse himself from my cases due to his prior knowledge of me and bias against me, but he doesn't.
If I could give this judge a "0" I would.

One of the best judges I have ever appeared in front of in San Diego County. He is good at listening to arguments and reading between the lines when an attorney is spewing nonsense. Has a good sense of humor, and makes well-reasoned decisions. Would certainly love to get more cases with this judge.
