Civil Litigation - Private
I had a settlement conference with him in late 2011. It was a painful 4 hours. He seemed very old and tired, and crotchety. He spent hours questioning the parties about the case, getting the facts straight. Then, did nothing with all those facts he gathered. I don't think he is capable of getting out of judge-mode and into settlement officer mode. He was very passive, and seemed to lack skills in getting parties to resolution. He lacked energy. Not surprisingly the case did not resolve. I fought hard to avoid going back to him for a second settlement conference, and luckily was successful. Would never use him again for a settlement conference.
