Comment #: CA6165
Extraordinary judge. Has a very upbeat, relaxed demeanor and a very sharp mind. Asked intelligent questions to witnesses and about evidence. Put each piece of evidence together like a jigsaw puzzle to figure out what really happened. He neither looks or acts his age (74).....just wish he could spend another 30+ years on the bench. San Diego is very fortunate for his past and future service to this county.
