Sua Sponte: A Judge Comments

A judge discusses what can be done about stereotyping by litigators.

Hon. Mike Engelhart

In response to “When Stereotypes Attack” by Justice Bridget Mary McCormack and Professor Len Niehoff, I will tell you that I am a Texas judge, but I don’t cultivate a hanging tree outside of the courthouse. Guns? Yes. Under the robe? Not necessarily. In fact, I’m actually originally from New Jersey, just like Justice McCormack. And I’m a Michigan alum, just like Len Niehoff. Go Blue! The point? Don’t stereotype Texas judges.
