Judge Clott is an outstanding arraignment judge. He is astute, smart, respectful (though sometimes he can get impatient with laywers on either side of the case) and amazingly efficient. He works very hard and expects you to do the same. When you are in his courtroom you feel like you are in the presence of someone truly dedicated to his profession.

It is a disgrace to the legal profession that this man was made a judge. He has absolutely no consideration for due process, nor for the concept of justice that is the very essence of the criminal justice system. As an arraignment judge, his sole concern is to arraign as many cases as possible in a factory-like manner. He will not allow legal arguments to be made in his courtroom. He has no willingness to listen to bail applications on behalf of those charged with a crime. He shows no interest in weighing or balancing the factors that must be considered by a judge when deciding whether to set bail and revoke a person's liberty. His comtempt for those who appear before him, whether it be as counsel or as a defendant, is obvious and insulting.
