Judge Wright's name is a misnomer. A more apt monicker would be 'Judge Wrong.' I argued a fairly interesting summary judgment motion opposition drafted by a partner. The judge was shockingly ill-prepared, obviously had made up his mind and had no interest in listening to argument. In fact, I found myself arguing to his law clerks who at least appeared interested in the oral argument. The only consolation was that the judge kept calling me by my (absent) partner's name, so my good name is not sullied by that record! And as the other counsel have observed, Judge Wright compensates for his lack of legal acumen and inexperience (he had only been a municipal court judge for one year when inexplicably elevated to the federal bench) by being impatient, imperious and downright rude. Worst judge I have seen in 25 years, and most of that time has been in the Central District of CA, so I have seen some pretty awful judges (along with some very good ones). Without a doubt, inside of a couple more years, Judge Wright will race right to the top of the worst. Mark my words.
