Judge Hurley is excellent with the jury. He works hard to ensure the litigants receive a fair trial. He creates an excellent record, does his own research, is tough on oral arguments related to trial motions and jury instructions, and generally comes to the right legal and factual conclusion. He tries to force parties to settle -- even when it is not possible. He is slow to rule on pre-trial matters and allows discovery to continue too close to trial. Once at trial, he keeps a tight schedule, moves the case along, and gives well researched, highly intelligent rulings. His evidentiary rulings are fair and legally sound -- although he sometimes bends over backwards to ensure that the rulings create fairness -- not just legal correctness. He works hard to ensure a balance in his rulings and in the case. In short, I wish most judges handled themselves, the jury and the litigants so well at trial!
