Comment #: CA20986
I feel that Barry truly listened to my concerns, he adjusted the original verdict to reflect some mistakes made on the landlord's side of things. He restored confidence in the system a little bit, as some judges in the area leave much to be desired

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: CA13154
Very pro-plaintiff. Allowed plaintiff to add causes of action on eve of trial. Admitted on the record that he was trying to "help" the plaintiff's attorney. Refused to grant common immunities. Complete double standard - allowed plaintiff's attorney to ignore the Code of Civil Procedure while holding defense attorney accountable in every way. Be very careful in front of this Judge and make your record clear. If you are a civil defense attorney, try to 170.6 him.


Comment #: CA12336
Too old to on the bench, not in touch with reality nor is he aware of what is going on in his own community.
