What others have said about Hon. Ronald Evans Quidachay



Comment #: CA7440
Rude, uninformed, short-tempered and prejudicial. Makes up his mind based on gut and convenience, not law or facts. No compassion. No patience. No room for rationale discourse. Narcissism at its worst.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA6955
He is arbitrary, capricious, and extremely authority conscious, the essence of what a judge should not be. He will easily take offense if he thinks you are challenging his authority. However, if you are extremely careful not to annoy him and the other side is obnoxious, it may be an advantage to have this judge. Non lawyers should beware as this judge has very little patience.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA3099
His is not a good judge. He makes decisions off the cuff and then changes his mind based on an irrelevant detail. He demeanor is very poor. He is flip and rude to litigants and attorneys. He gives the legal profession a very bad name.


Comment #: CA3096
Unfair and unreasonable. First he held in my favor, then lawyer on the other side said things about me that had nothing to do with the case and had no relevance to the issue at hand, and he changed his mind and ruled against me. His demeanor was rude, abrupt, unprofessional. I thought he was a court staff person, like a bailiff when I few walked in because he seems like he has only a high school education. He's not a good judge.

Used to be the judge handling half of Law & Motion. Fair, good rulings. Reads the papers and asks good questions. Gives plaintiffs and defendants a fair shake. Generally tends to err on the side of letting pleadings through initial demurrers and motion stages. Good sense of humor.
