Judge Hill is another example of the degree to which the appointment system is broken. He lacks any ability whatsoever to grasp basic points of constitutional law, he can read but not understand meaning or context, he can not for the life of himself get the point. What I saw was a judge who seemed distracted, almost to degree of ADD, during some of most important parts of a felony trial. He wouldn't even bother to look at exhibits or the witnesses while they were testifying. At the end, he just came up with a few wild conclusion that seemed disconnected from the evidence that was presented. Nice enough guy, just not competent.

He seemed quite uninterested in the family law cases. And in fact was rude to one of the attornies. He yawned , swayed in his chair , and was condescending. So much so that I am writing my state representative about his poor attitude.

Judge Hill is an great new addition to the Prince George's County bench. He is fair, punctual, calm, no-nonsense, and friendly to litigants as well as attorneys. He has a strong grasp on the law and applies it evenly between plaintiffs and defendants.
