Judge Friot and Judge Cauthron are the brightest judges in our district. He is the best judge we have in grasping complex commercial transactions and disputes. He works very hard, and expects lawyers to do the same. Although he seems to come to decisions quickly, even when I've lost before him I have never felt as though he acted on a whim or out of bias. He is very confident, but he holds oral arguments on motions more than anyone else and gives everyone their due. If you come unprepared or late, you may be embarassed. He has a strong moral compass, but he is not pious and makes decisions on the law and facts. He is a little harsh at times about arcane aspects of the local rule. I don't agree with the negative view of him posted by others.
