Comments:
This judge is extremely biased. He allows people that are not victims in a case to provide an impact statement, and uses his own emotions in making a decision. This judge should not be allowed to sit on the bench.

Rating:1.3
Comments:
This guy is the single most biased and racist judge in South Florida. He's rude, issues inane rulings favoring his agenda and sucks up to large firms and large insurance companies.

Litigant

Comment #: FL1902
Rating:3.0
Comments:
Strongly biased against prose litigants. He awarded a Final Judgment to a big corporate lawyer against me without a hearing... when I hired an attorney and called his hand on this, he could seem to remember how it happened.

He's a decent guy -- and this is coming from someone he sentenced to jail.
