Had an interesting day not too long ago. I sat in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and listened to multiple Martinez CIVIL cases that were up on appeal. He was reversed each time. People need to understand that Martinez may be a fine criminal judge, especially when locking up defendants, but that isn't the entire job. To say otherwise would be akin to arguing that anyone who can dunk should be in the NBA! As the below comments aptly suggest, he is a fish out of water when it comes to dealing with COMPLEX CIVIL MATTERS. He just doesn't do his homework. Most or all of these comments can coexist, and those Ninth Circuit hearings only strengthened the positions of those who say he is unqualified. In each case, the outcomes should have been so obvious at the district level. His rulings seem to contradict prevailing and widely recognized case law, which means his actions tend to border on abuse of authority. If you can't do the entire job, you aren't qualified to do the job at all.
