I recently had a 2255 evidentiary hearing before Judge Jack. While my client ultimately was not victorious, Judge Jack (a) gave us a hearing (which a lot of judges will simply find a way to weasel out of granting), and (b) gave us a very fair hearing. A criminal defendant on a 2254 or 2255 can't ask for more than that. While I'm sure my client would disagree, I think Judge Jack came to the proper conclusion in ultimately denying the 2255 based on her findings of fact and credibility. The reasoning in Judge Jack's opinions granting us an evidentiary hearing and ultimately denying us relief were well-written, well-researched, and well-reasoned. I'd have no objection to having my next federal postconviction writ held before Judge Jack. Also, her court staff is a pleasure to deal with and went out of their way to accommodate us re: scheduling matters.
