Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: MD4097
Makes lawyers jump through hoops for his amusement. Makes lawyers feel small even though he often has trouble understanding the most basic concepts of contract law. So biased he should be removed from the bench. Being the administrative judge is a joke.

I have been before Judge Wolfe a few times, and I have never felt comfortable that he understood the concepts being presented to him. I had a case where he found for the defendant, essentially overruling direct appellate precedent. He was appealed and reversed quickly by the Circuit Court. On another matter, he took a trial under advisement, but did not issue a judgment for 8 months. This is District Court! Unbelievable.

Fairly even handed at trial but generally pretty rough on defendants at sentencing.

like the previous commenter says, refuses continuances that most judges grant and moving the docket has much more value than the discussion or litigation of any fact or legal isssue of any kind.

all issues that require substantial thought and ruling or work on the admin side may be given a good consideration, but the judge will make it seem like any actual work he is doing to rule on cases or do his administrative duties is a terrible imposition on him and that everyone around him is somehow an aggravation.

He is a terrible administrative judge. I wonder if he ever reads the pleadings that he rules on. I know of no attorneys that believe he is running the courthouse properly. He just moves cases on. There are no continuances, and no attorneys' fees are ever awarded to plaintiffs, even when the contract allows for them.
