Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ4071
This judge denied my claim after I showed him sufficient proof and evidence and after I filed a motion and paid a fee, I am refiling that motion because that money belongs to me, it is unfair! He takes a long time for him to consider a decision, and then he denies my claim during the times of crisis? Especially during the pandemic? No money??

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ3295
Does not know the law, does not abide by court rules, his way or the highway, swayed by favored attorneys, not truth. Appears to be mentally incapacitated or extremely unethical.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ3056
Biased, led by favored attorneys, does not know or understand civil litigation, is unconcerned with court rules, is unconcerned with the truth. Uncertain if incompetent or untrustworthy. Waste of tax dollars

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ775
A Judge who clearly plays favorites with local attorneys. Granted a child support modification to an attorney who did not include a case information statement (which is against the court rules). Judge then went on the record and plainly stated that he was not following an appellate division case that he agreed was on point to the benefit of the local attorney. Not sure if he is incompetent or unethical.
