Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA28758
Judge is idiot, he granted anti-SLAPP for expert, who intentionally lied in the court. Does mean you can kill somebody and ask your friendly expert to made a fake evidence. Nobody sue you for the fake. This is nonsense


Comment #: CA25015
Judge Barrett is thorough, careful, and most of all fair. Even though you may not be happy with, nor agree with, his decision, you will know it was made with a foundation and basis in the law. Everyone who appears in his courtroom will be assured of receiving a fair trial

Comment #: CA15338
Judge Barrett seems to go out of his way to make sure the parties receive a fair trial. He takes his time to make difficult rulings to make sure they are correct. He is very patient with attorneys and understanding of travel schedules. Couldn't ask for a better trial judge. Whichever side you are on you will be assured of a fair trial.


Comment #: CA15158
His courtroom is well run, respectful, and low0key. The proceedings I was involved with required him be instructional as well as measured in his language used. It was obvious to all he took much effort to speak with care and consideration, and I found his tone to be patient without a hint of patronization. I wish all courtrooms were administered with such high levels of deference to litigants and the law.

The worse judge on the bench.

Comment #: CA1148
Model judge. Unbiased, honorable, diligent, fair, but still empathetic. Works hard to get things right and willing to admit if he makes a mistake. My opinion is that there should be more judges like him.
