Comment #: NJ2135
This Judge has let his power go to his head. Seems to generally dislike being a Judge. He is condescending to both sides and thinks everyone in his Courtroom is wasting his time.

This guy is an emotional roller coaster. Stay on his good side. I think he's actually fairly smart, but if you piss him off, he will screw you. Too defense oriented as well.

He is well schooled in the rules of evidence. He knows His stuff and handles trials in a professional competent manner.

Comment #: NJ555
This...person is the most ridiculous excuse for a judge. Basically, a self-absorbed useless waste of bench space. Any pre-trial evidence, supporting documentation, etc. is wasted on this loser. He's a joke, has no opinions for his dumb decisions and should not be in a court room unless he's a defendant. None of his decisions are based on any facts, evidence or law. In summary, he's a complete joke.

Comment #: NJ451
Absolutely horrible. Failed to follow the rules of evidence, failed to consider the actual evidence, disregarded undisputed facts, and reached conclusions that neither party even argued. Largely wasted parties' time by pre-judging matter, but then requiring oral argument - which he promptly cut short.

Judge Wellerson is one of the best trial judges out there. Handles the jury well and is fair, attentive and engaging during trial. He is a straight shooter and I can not say enough good things about him as a trial judge.
