What others have said about Hon. Robert T. Burger



Comment #: FL4199
He fell asleep multiple times during the trial. He laughed multiple times when the Defense attorney insulted the Plantiff's attorney. He would not allow evidence of perjury of a defendant's affidavit to be entered in. He stood at up at about 3:30pm on the afternoon of the first day of a two day trial and stated that he was "Bored" and the lawyers told him that they had to do their closing arguments in writing. When both lawyers told them that would cause unnecessary expense to their clients and that they could conclude their closings in 10 minutes each. He said he wasn't going to spend 10 more minutes listening to this. When the lawyers asked if they could finish the trial tomorrow as it was scheduled. He said he didn't want to hear any more of it because he was bored. After finally getting a final judgement, he wrote a clarification that was opposite of what the judgment said and stated at the clarification hearing that he didn't remember any of the details of the case. This man should not be allowed to drive or be on the bench.
