Judge King is a great guy. Nice person. Yes, he pontificates too much, but what the hell. At the end you know that you are going to get a well reasoned decision, not matter if it goes your way or not. He's not afraid to put his reasons on the record. He'll be the first to say, maybe I'm wrong, but this is why I think I'm right. I respect that. My only fear is that sometimes he may waffle a bit because he fears he doesn't want to hurt the more wealthy attorney or someone he knows more. Don't fall prey to that judge. Maybe I'm wrong on that observation. If not, don't do it Judge.

Great judge -- knows the law, Rules of Civil Procedure and Evidence and how to apply them. I agree that he seems to pontificate -- but, if I were a judge, I would too. Listens to the arguments of counsel and encourages and participates in scholarly discussion and will request a memo of law if warranted prior to ruling.
