Rating:Not Rated
Total egotist, and not nearly as bright as he thinks he is. Plays favorites with lawyers.

Judge Link is a sweet curmudgeon. Though he will appear a bit surly and short with counsel, that is simply his way of letting you know who's boss, and perhaps to test your mettle. He is a fine man though and an excellent trial judge. You know you will get a fair shake with him.

He needs to be removed from the bench. Makes findings which are not based on the law, but instead based upon his own personal prejudices. I agree with the other review. He is a chameleon and gives the appearance that is an even handed judge, but has his own agenda.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA2630
I've been a lawyer for over 20 years. The worst judge that I have ever encountered. Nobody even close. If you are the defendant (civil or criminal) run from this guy as fast as you can. He seems like a cool guy before the trial, but you'll be hating life after the trial begins.

To give you an idea of what a wacko he is, he wears three black stripes on the arm of his robe, representing three people that he sentenced to death. That should tell you enough.
