While I don't agree with all he says, Gerry Spence has posted an interesting three-part series on his blog titled "How to Survive the Tyrant Judge." Here are links to the three postings, with a representative quote from each:
Part 1 "We’re afraid of judges because they’re power-persons, which harkens back to our experiences with our first power-persons –- usually a parent."
Part 2 "The greatest attraction to the bench is simply power."
Part 3 "The need to be helped is endemic with the judge who was, himself, a child in need of help, and that need persists with the judge who is now the power-person with a parental duty to help."
