What others have said about Hon. Henry J. Walsh



Comment #: CA6725
Subjugates law for religious belief holding that teachers at a religious backed secular pre-school are the same as clergy, and that teachers at such a place can be fired for not holding the same religious belief as the institution. Should not be on the bench, regardless of past accomplishment or education.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA3225
Judge Walsh was generally down-to-earth, fair and hard-working. He found the plaintiff in my case to be a vexatious litigant and had the courage to grant me attorney fees on the defense. Plaintiff appealed and the Court of Appeals upheld Walsh, issuing a stinging rebuke to plaintiff. He can be gruff and impatient. He groused at me as much as at opposing counsel. But I found him to be willing to make the hard calls and do the right thing when it counted. For that reason, I wouldn't hesitate to appear before him again on any matter.
