This judge is very even-tempered and courteous; has appearance of curmudgeon, but is extremely fair with litigators. Main criticism is punctuality of opinions, particularly summary judgment opinions. It's always wise to prepare for trial when he's sitting on a summary judgment ruling. However, going back to temperament, he's the polar opposite of his successor, who is self-centered and prone to throw things at attorneys or scream nonsensically at the slightest provocation. This judge wants every one to have their day in court. He does not use -- as his successor does -- summary judgment as docket control.
