What others have said about Hon. Kevin A. Enright


Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA44472
I tried my very first jury trial before Judge Enright and had a thoroughly wonderful experience in his courtroom. He is fair, patient, and explains his rulings to counsel. He does a long, thorough court voir dire.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA39094
Seems so quiet, considerate and engaged until he issues a ruling that ignores every fact, law, evidence and testimony and simply rewrites the facts to his liking. Never saw such disregard for law and common decency. Destroyed an innocent life while rewarding corrupt attorneys and their clients and ignoring their litigation misconduct. DON'T LET THIS ONE FOOL YOU. IF YOU AREN'T THE PARTY WITH THE MOT EXPENSIVE LAWYERS, PEREMPTORY CHALLENGE IMMEDIATELY!

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA34930
I have a lot of trouble understanding the positive ratings of this judge. Yes, he seemed even-tempered and impartial because he doesn't comment on anything at hearings to keep everything off the record and then issues ridiculous rulings that ignore all facts and law that defeat the arguments of his favored attorneys. I've never experienced such blatant bias in my entire career.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA12908
Committed obvious reversible error with regard to duplicate experts testifying on the same subject matter (exactly).

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA11573
I tried a case in front of judge Enright in the summer of 2017 that went for 7 weeks. He is one of the most even tempered and fair judges I have experienced and I have tried more than 90 cases. It was an absolute pleasure being in his courtroom.

Judge Enright seems like he is a nice enough person and most litigants really like him. However, he seems to defer to large firm lawyers, and allow a large firm lawyer to thoroughly abuse the schedule of a small firm lawyer, seemingly with no regard to the lack of justice that can come out of that. My case ended up fine, mostly because he is also not very pro active and lets the jury do what its job is. One gets the feeling that sometimes he wants to bait the attorneys into screwing up. Courtroom has many dark days as well, and what could be a two week trial may turn out to be 5. But no consideration at all for the lawyer's schedules. They don't matter.
