I have not been in many court rooms but the 2 times I was in judge Vega's church I found him to be rude and condesending to the attorneys. He interruped them many times, reminded them that he was the judge when they were trying to do their job and give him information. He also seemed to have it in for my daughter in law because he said he was going to make an example of her without knowning any of the circumstances. The last time we were in court he was very stoic and business like until he looked and my daughter in laws father who has guardingship of her son, it looked like he knew him by the way he smiled at him several time, he was not like that with anyone else.
