The other comments prompted me to do the same.

The writing is garbage. Why would anyone in their right mind spend five full pages describing the 12(b)(6) standard in a routine motion to dismiss? The amount of superfluous nonsense and of dicta in each order is impressive.

And half the orders on WL are discovery or evidentiary disputes - a magistrate's bread and butter.


He basically has the docket of a magistrate and district judge at the same time. That's half of the reason for the merciless hours, the other is because he pushes out so much volume on every topic.

I blanketed west coast district judges, was rejected by Browning. His rejection email contains a detailed CV of the people he does pick.

I remember getting one of those. He figured out a way to turn the rejection letter into an annual project - it's no wonder his clerks work such long hours.
