What others have said about Hon. Marianne Espinosa



Comment #: NJ2090
Misrepresented/changed facts of case. Contradicted herself multiple times in written opinion. Openly hostile towards litigant. Revealed confidential information - that had no bearing on the case - in opinion for no other purpose than to cause harm to litigant. Don't be male in a divorce related case and expect to prevail.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ2063
Delivered an opinion for a 2013 appellate panel that misrepresented/ rewrote the facts of a case in affirming the court below, in addition to knowingly revealing confidential information throughout its opinion that was subsequently reported by third parties on the internet once the opinion was published on the world wide web. Creates an appearance that case fixing occurs in the appellate division.

Comment #: NJ279
informed, thoughtful and prepared. temperament is unpredictable and at times irrational. demonstrates improper personal bias at times which is troubling. with personality in check, a good judge.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NJ236
Terrific intelligence, personal flaws by the handful.
