To appear (pre-trial) in front of Judge Ferguson is a pleasure if you know your case inside-out or a nightmare if you don't. My biggest gripe is that he's very impatient, which can lead him to hurry your case along, to your detriment. On the other hand, he has the courage to rule against the prosecutor, including dismissing very serious cases.

This judge frustrated our defense by making his own objections. He was not attentive to the questions. Later he admitted new case law - which points we
had argued to no avail.

He has heart problems, which may cause inattention.
