Another Rick Scott appointed brownnoser. Hope he never makes it to the federal Bench.

Always late and doesn't seem to shut up.
Incredibly annoying and loud. I cant believe they are considering this guy for the Southern District Court. He should stay in small claims handling evictions and petty little things.

This judge did not bother to read the duly filed Answer describing horrific persecution and significant wrongdoing by the Plaintiff, his documented friend. He granted a Wrongful Eviction so this friend could destitute an elderly veteran and disabled wife who were CURRENT ON RENT. Plaintiff, property owner-landlord swindled this couple and other Elderly, tricking them to spend their own money to make rental apartments livable, then ignored Florida Statutes Tenant Rights,evicted them without reimbursements for thousands of dollars;their duly filed Appeal and Counterclaim was mysteriously misfiled,assuring this Elderly couple received NOTHING, putting them on the street. Other landlords use identical tactics to rob the vulnerable, assisted by these judges.

From the first days when he was assigned to the Miami Beach Division he has set an outstanding example which all Judges should follow.

It's a true honor to be the first to rate Judge Ruiz. Judge Ruiz is a rising star in the Miami Dade County Judiciary. He's smart, fair, has a great temperment (but don't be rude to him or he will put you in your place!). He will not last long as a County Court Judge, as I'm sure he will be elevated and rightfully so. Stay fair Judge Ruiz. Don't be swayed by plaintiffs' pushiness and sense of entitlement. You haven't always ruled my way, but I truly believe you didn't based on how you interpreted the rule of law. That's all I can ask for. As a judge your integrity is all you have. If a man/woman doesn't have that, they should not serve as a judge.
