Comment #: NJ2793
Judge Dortch is a wonderful jurist. Smart, fair and knowledgeable. Camden is lucky to have him. There are not that many excellent judges here. Maybe he could give ..... Judge ..... it kills me to call her that ........ Blue some lessons.

I'm shocked that Judge Dortch has no comments here. He is by far the best judge in Camden Superior. I'm amazed that he's still on the Superior Court bench because I would have thought he would have been nominated by now to the Federal bench. As a transcriber I have made a living listening to judges of all vicinages of both the federal and state and Judge Dortch is one of the best. He takes each person as an individual and evaluates everything necessary to determine his ruling. He is fair, smart, well spoken -- maybe he could teach Judge Joke Blue about that -- and an excellent jurist. Judge Dortch is truly too good to be on the Superior Court bench, as he is head and shoulders above the rest in Camden.
