I keep telling everyone -- not that it needs repeating -- that the Ninth Circuit thinks that Judge Real (in the Central District) is inept/lazy/incompetent. And worthy of, at a minimum, repeated dissing.
Yet more evidence of that fact here. In which the Ninth Circuit again goes out of its way to slam -- and, in this case, expressly admonish -- Judge Real in the final paragraph of the opinion:
"The district judge’s unseemly haste in dismissing this case, and his failure to heed the perfectly plausible (and meritorious) explanation proffered by plaintiff in his motion for reconsideration, has cost the parties significant money and delay in pursuing this wholly unnecessary appeal. Justice suffers when judges act in such an arbitrary fashion. We apologize to the parties and admonish the district judge to exercise more care and patience in the future."
Like Judge Real is really going to listen.
