I'm curious what you think about Judge Whelan? What kind of a judge do you see him as? What is your opinion of his career as a judge, then a federal judge, and his judgments? What do you think about how he has handled some very difficult cases, such as Betty Broderick's TWO trials, and that neither side had any complaints? Do you think he is honest and fair, or do you disagree? Why is it apparently something to be criticized for anyone to state an opinion that they think a judge is honest and fair? Isn't that the kind of judge we all want for any kind of case?? I just don't understand the bitter tone toward the judge here. He took this case because he wanted to-- as a federal judge on senior status, he can pick and choose the cases he takes. For whatever his personal reasons, he wanted to be the judge for THIS case. That's all we can read into that. And he has a lot of experience, which is a good thing, no matter the outcome, right? If he dismisses the case, it's because he thinks LEGALLY it can't be proven. I might be disappointed by that, but not angry or anything. I trust this judge's history and perspective and judgment. The very fact that the case is now proceeding forward, after he originally tossed it out on a technicality, IMO is proof of his fairness and honesty. He tossed it when there was a reason to toss it, and he's letting it go forward because right now there is a legal basis for continuing. If the case is tossed, it does not mean to me that the suicide finding was correct. There are lots of murderers who are never prosecuted, or who escape judgment. I will simply put this case into the "no justice" pile. A judgement against the plaintiff wouldn't mean Rebecca was proven to have committed suicide, or was not murdered. It would mean that wrongful death couldn't be proven. This is a civil case, not a criminal one.
