Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY4874
Rating:2.0
Comments:
If you have a civil matter you care about and it is on her calendar for a motion, make sure it gets held over for the other judge. I appeared for a motion in a case that I believed was solid. When the other side didn't show up, I was advised that the best thing to do was to take a dismissal: "we all walk away." This, not from the judge, but from the court attorney who sat by her side and whispered in her ear the whole time. In other words, my motion was decided because the clerk wanted it ended. Wow. She seems nice enough and is probably a competent person, but obviously she either doesn't have confidence in herself on the bench, or is easily swayed by ex parte types.
