He is a fantastic judge. He has an outstanding disposition -- kind, humble, and patient -- combined with an obvious desire to reach a fair, correct result. He has an impressive resume -- including arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court -- and is easily always the smartest one in the courtroom, although you would never guess that he knows it. He is respectful of counsel and their knowledge of the issues, and doesn't pretend to be an expert on everything. He is a true asset to the bench.
