Why Federal Court is No Place for Amateurs

If I were to pick one U.S. District Judge from the Southern District of Texas before whom one should not appear pro se, it would be David Hittner:

(I’m guessing Judge Hittner wants to get the parties before him to see if the plaintiff can control his temper better in person.)


  1. You have been remiss in your duty. There is no followup as to what happened on 10/22.I see mini-series all over this.

  2. There’s nothing more enjoyable than an even judicial temperament in a judge with life tenure. It leaves the public with a true sense of the blessings of our system of justice.

  3. I have been reading your blog for some time now. You first caught my attention with your post on rehabilitating non judgmental jurors.

    I believe I have the answer to the question on whether the plaintiff can hold his temper in person.


  4. Clearly the judge was a jerk. I’m not saying that the plaintiff isnt a jerk, but it’s the judge’s duty to enforce the law.

  5. When a prose plaintiff kicks a judges ass in a circuit appeals court it is way past time for the plainly incompetent judge to be looking for some other line of work.
