If I could give him a negative rating I would. One of the worst judges I've ever had.

He is biased and don't care others except whom he knows. He sleeps all the time during oral arguments. It looks like he decided ahead of the oral argument to rule against you no matter about your case and what the law is.

Was falling asleep during oral argument. When he knows his stuff, he's un-budge-able. So hope he actually knows his stuff or he'll rule against you no matter what the law is.

Comment #: DC387
He is biased and careless person. He was sleeping during trial. He must be removed from bench immediately not to make further harm to parties. He should go back to law school to study further.

Very insecure man. Should know the law. He doesn't.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: DC374
He was short and impatient. Clearly advised the parties that the case was beneath him and he could care less. If that's how he feels and is that disrespectful to parties and lawyers - he should not be on the bench. His salary should be put to another who actually cares about his job.

Rude and self-centered -- he wants to be the center of attention in court. He has a tendency to insult individuals in the court, and then look around to see if he has "fan favor." He does not follow the law, but himself. The vice president of a particular management company (Acorns) has alleged that he has passed verdicts in support of individuals he is associated with.

has an impressive pedigree so i expected an impressive courtroom decorum to go with it and was surprised by the way he acted. would fly off the handle at pro se litigants, yelling at them and cutting them off. have some sympathy for gods sake. insults attorneys sometimes by commenting on their attire or word choice. even if he has a point, he shouldnt do that, its unprofessional for a judge to use the courtroom for teaching moments. he definitely leans towards the government in criminal cases and the landlord in LT court.
