What others have said about Hon. Louis S. Sceusi


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2754
Likable person, respectful but light on analysis in motions and fairness in results. Could be a better judge with more work.


Comment #: NJ2655
This Judge clearly favors woman. He has disdain for stay at home fathers. He is a cold hearted person with little knowledge of family Court. He has been moved to Civil Court for a reason.


Comment #: NJ2579
Legally incompetent, no one should be Judge after not practicing law for 11 years. Sceusi was a Rockaway Mayor for 11 years and endorsed his "political friend" Governor Christie for Mayor for payback Christie appointed him for Morristown judge. This is a JUDICIALGATE scandal in addition to BRIDGEGATE scandal. Sceusi is a ward of the Christie. He should be removed from the bench before he creates more victims by his dishonorable decisions .


Comment #: NJ2310
Bias. Governor should not nominate him again. He is not qualified to be Judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2309
It is troubling that he apply his opinion rather than law. Needs to removed from bench.
