Based on the comments I was very concerned headed into trial with a client who I felt was being strong-armed by the government in a check cashing scheme. The government was less than ethical and I felt like it would be difficult to get the judge to address it. It was just the opposite. From day one he jumped on the government for misleading the court in motions in limine and he was continually holding their feet to the fire throughout the trial. He even yelled at them twice in front of the jury for asking unethical questions. I found him to be fair and intelligent on his rulings even though I disagreed with him on at least two critical decisions. All in all, I left with a great deal of respect for how he handled a difficult three week trial. I would welcome the opportunity to try another case in front of him.
