What others have said about Hon. Jesse M. Furman


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 22367
This judge is too arrogant, evern for a federal judge. He is an extremely wealthy Baby Jesus who got his appointment because of his parents: his father is a very, very wealthy Manhattan developer and both parents contribute heavily to left-leaning causes. His older brother is a top Obama, economic advisor. He had virtually no experience practicing law and is very pro-business and pro-establishment and can be very spiteful. A generally very awful judge. His very expensive education at all of the "right" academies and colleges and his intellect do not make up for his lack of experience practing law and his temper.

Fair and balanced. Don't let former USAO credentials scare you. This Judge gets it and will not tolerate prosecutor shenanigans. Of course be prepared and be straight about your facts. A pleasure to be in front of.
