Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY8466
Not sure what others are talking about. This is an excellent judge, with an excellent demeanor and knowledge of the law and trials. As an Court of Claims Judge she was unbelievably fair and professional to the litigants. A real pleasure to try a case before.

Very poor and apparently lazy judge who cannot be bothered reviewing court papers and pleadings, in making wildly erroneous statements.

Very fair, hardworking, kind judge. Always a pleasure to appear before her. Does the right thing, even if that means occasionally dismissing a claim.
