Judge Satter currently hears civil cases and has had previous assignments in the traffic division, general sessions and the criminal division.
Courthouse personnel, attorney and litigant evaluations received by the Commission rate Judge Satter highly overall. Judge Satter received high marks from attorneys on all of the evaluation categories on the survey administered by the State Judicial Commission. He received highest ratings for maintaining control of the courtroom, working diligently and sentencing fairly.
Judge Satter believes in keeping things simple, believing that the county court is the “peoples’ court” and should therefore be accessible to the people, and he streamlines procedure to expedite presentations, especially where persons appear without an attorney. Judge Satter has taught classes to newly appointed judges.
The Second Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance recommends that Judge Satter BE RETAINED.
