Articulate, methodical, structured, decisive. Focuses on the key issue central to the case and helps parties resolve them. Lets attorneys try the case without undue involvement. A pleasure to appear before him. Excellent, knowledgeable chambers staff ready to help.

He does what is right. I have appeared before him on numerous occasions. He is a fair judge. He patiently allows all sides to be heard.

Had a major case involving many parties and novel issues of law. We had close two two dozen court appearances on a half a dozen motions and the only time we actually spoke to the judge was when we couldn't agree on an adjourned date. Law secretary runs the show. Sucking up to her is essential.

If there's a path of least resistance, Justice Bunyan will find it. Anything to avoid having to make a decision.

Useless at trial. Makes trials take 3x longer than needed because he is lazy. Can't handle objections. Complete moron.

Did somebody kidnap the real Bert Bunyan and install an impersonator in the courtroom? The person in court is absolutely clueless. One can only wonder who he impressed enough to garner enough support to become a judge.

Never actually got to the Judge. His law clerk conducts oral argument and then issues written decisions. Her knowledge of the law leaves much to be desired.
