I have no doubt that Judge Davis will be fair and not allow any litigant's or lawyer's prior remarks about him impact his rulings: If anything, I think Judge Davis will go out of his way to avoid any appearance that he is less than judicial in his demeanor. Lawyers who become judges give up a lot of earning capacity and freedom, resources otherwise available to practitioners, and open themselves up to criticism on a regular basis: All Federal Judges know and appreciate the difficulty and sacrifices they each make for the system. While it is appropriate to attack the ruling, the Judge should be respected in his Court -- as he is and will be in the appellate courts. Criticizing judges earns no brownie points anywhere and is typically counterproductive.

However, Smith said he would never have attacked a judge like Powers did in his appellate brief.
