Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CO131
Bizarre rulings. Filed a motion for default judgment. He took our requested damages and divided in half, and then only gave us 50% of the damages we asked for. No explanation whatsoever as to why this was done. He also takes forever to rule on motions, its not uncommon to show up on the day of trial and having to ask if he is ever going to rule on your discovery motion or motion for summary judgment. His normal response will be "oh yeah, I forgot, its denied." No further explanation given.

I continually had the feeling he hadn't read the briefs. Rulings were bizarre.

The previous assessment regarding his ruling on pre-trial motions is correct. Hopefully he will be more effective on the criminal docket where he is now, and retire before he moves back to the civil docket.

This judge fails to rule on motions - by ignoring them. He acts like the case file is utterly foreign to him, and fails to understand basic concepts like standing.
