    This judge has definite leanings toward the defense!
    Let’s hope these denials hopefully can be appealed as error of the court with some legal argument

    Has there been any research done of this particular judge’s rulings to measure denials v. grants for the plaintiffs motions –[in medical malpratice cases only]
    I would be very curious as to the statistical results

    Let’s hope one day there will be a website showing these statistical factors about all judges to the general public –
    Who knows – it may be out there already?
