What others have said about Hon. Michael J. Kassel


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ3390
He is terrible. Walks out of the room when expert video is playing. Stops a video with 5 minutes left to break for the day. Stops the jury charge in the middle to go eat lunch. Unwilling to do any research. Tells the jury his opinion of the case size. He is absolutely terrible and he has tenure so he does not care. This judge should be impeached.

Excellent Judge. Fully prepared for all arguments. Engages Counsel almost immediately so you know what he is thinking. Explains his thought process and his rulings. I cannot say anything negative or suggest room for improvement. A pleasure to appear before.
