If the rating permitted something worse I would have selected it. This man is a poor representative of the judiciary and the profession as a whole.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL5696
I'm pretty sure he favors older attorneys or ones that are his friends, because I have had valid motions denied. Sometimes he even refuses to hear argument. He set a one case for trial within the 18 month suggested period, in which discovery had not even begun. Though required to set cases for trial, he has complete control over when and should have given due consideration to the status of discovery.


Comment #: FL5665
He was the first appearance judge when I was arrested for some clearly aberrant behavior after being drugged. He released me on my own recognizance and was courteous and caring, directed corrections to get me medical attention. Nevertheless, I understand that he has soured on the state of the local bar and their general incompetence or disregard, so he is generally in a foul mood all the time now. Sitting on the bench and seeing all the attorneys and the litigants lie must be really difficult, but that is job he ran for.

A rude, disrespectful, ignorant, and incompetent excuse or a judge.

Hardworking, smart and fair

I'm surprised at these comments. I found J Cueto to be a fair judge, unbiased and considered the law.

Comment #: FL3956
very unimpressed by his attitude. Wholesale lack of attention to motions before him. Even less attention to orders submitted that are rubber stamped by his office. Very dismissive of attempts to be heard.

Comment #: FL3717
This judge is a former cop and maybe he should be in a squad car busting heads instead of judging civil matters, he is biased and arbitrary and will rule against you even though the law is clearly on your side, and like a typical cop he is a despotic bully.
