Extremely fair, calm justice who was excellent at helping to settle a case. I had honestly forgot that there are judges who are highly competent. Would gladly try a case in front of him from either side of the aisle, plaintiff or defendant.

Was experienced trial attorney and it shows. Lets counsel try their case, interrupts rarely only to clarify testimony even handedly. Patient, courteous, friendly while remaining dignified. Knowleadgeable and diligent.
If only they could clone him.
