Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OH16
Rating:4.6
Comments:
My experience with Judge Sheward is that in close calls he always leans towards the defense in civil litigation. I have found his decisions to be poorly reasoned. His temperament, while abrupt, I would hesitate to categorize as rude.

This judge has a very low intelligence and is very opinionated. He has no integrity and no concept of impartiality.He is unquestionably the worst judge that I have ever appeared before. He should be removed.
