Judge Donato mixes a dangerous combination of arrogance, lack of understanding of the law and a lack of self awareness. He seems to be completely ego/power driven and appears to only care about belittling those unfortunate enough to appear in front of him. He is unaware of his huge gaps in knowledge, as demonstrated by an unfortunate display when he was sitting by designation on the 9th Circuit. Overall, it is a miserable experience being before him. He is a caricature of an arrogant, mean spirited and ill informed judge.
