Ditto the other comments. Not allowed to present complete evidence, decision made before evidence completed, decision not based on law but personal bias.

Comments:
Judge Easter does not treat people with patience or respect --- he always seems grouchy bordering on hateful.

Easter is in too much of a hurry. You won't be allowed to present your entire case and this is a HUGE problem because he makes up his mind too quickly before hearing all the evidence. He's made a lot of wrong decisions this way!

Also, he doesn't understand that there can be more than one theory under which a party may be entitled to damages -- and that being unable to recover under one theory does NOT prevent recovery under the other legal theories.

He's a real disappointment.

One of the brightest guys I know. I am prejudiced, I used to work with him, but I remain impressed. Very focused on what is right.

I was always told that if you go to court you would be allowed to present your evidence but not in Judge Easter's courtroom. I was also told that exparte conversations were illegal but not for Judge Easter. All the rules seem to be different for him.
