“How do you go from being an advocate to being a neutral-detached referee?” -Trey Gowdy

As a former civil lawyer, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit Judge, A. Marvin Quattlebaum answers that question and provides insight into how he maintains neutrality when sitting in the judge’s seat. Trey and Judge Quattlebaum reflect on the varying layers of the judicial system and how they all overlap in pursuit of justice.  Judge Quattlebaum also emphasizes the importance of both respect and moving personal politics to the back burner when making decisions.
