Comment #: CA3600
I really like Judge Saucedo and it pains me to be as brutally honest as I am going to be: his scholarship is atrocious. If you're going to settle a case, he's great. If you're going to litigate, you're in for some puzzling rulings.

Judge Saucedo is one of the smartest Judges in the Tulare County Superior Court. He has a good temperment and is fair and impartial. He's presently in the Juvenile Division and I find that he really cares for the juvenile defenders that come before him, realizing that perhaps because of their youth, they still have a chance to change directions and acts on that potential in dealing with them.

This judge is well-educated, very fair, and is always prepared in both criminal and civil cases. He always reads the file in its entirety and knows the law. In juvenile cases, he demonstrates genuine care for those who appear before him. He expects lawyers who appear before him to also be prepared and to diligently represent their clients.
