Comments:
This is a very hardworking judge. Willing to listen. Tries to get it right. He readily reconsiders an erroneous ruling if you support your position with research. Even when tested, he treats everyone in his courtroom with the respect that they deserve.

Rating:4.9
Comments:
Conducted himself professionally. For someone so highly regarded as a legal scholar, numerous decisions ignored the law and he inexplicably pandered to a defaulting defendant to the extent that questions were raised as to his impartiality in the matter

Rating:6.8
Comments:
A very well mannered and even tempered judge. Always punctual. In my case he did not get involved in pre-trial matters, deferring to his law secretary. Was unduly indulgent of defendants' machinations and of the defendant's flagrant violations of the obligation to disclose at the same time that he urged that the case be moved to trial. Hard to reconcile his conduct with his reputation for even handedness and refusal to tolerate the game playing of a bygone era.
