BROOK BARTLETT UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE Kansas City, Missouri February _28_, 1997. 2
Comments: The best thing about a judge like above, is that Bartlett can take the Local Rules and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and make them simple enough so that even an idiot like LawyerMore can understand what the trial is all about. Regrettably for me, Bartlett is making it easier for LawyerMore to wing it, without having his feeble mind strained by having to read lawbooks, hence negating in large part my greater intelligence and experience.
Most federal judges, like Dean Whipple on the same circuit, aren't as honest or competent.
