Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:1.8
Comments:
This old woman should retire. She is a moody, sometimes nasty old hack who empowers her court personnel to treat attorneys like criminals. She plays favorites and generally hates men.

Well, well, well. Gone from the Appellate Term is Marsha. This horrendous monster has been retired, but still serves as a Supreme Court Justice. Make no mistake, her clubhouse hack husband, Jeff Feldman, made her a judge through his powers as chief hack.

I don't know what Steinhardt is like in her trial part assignments, but I would beg to differ on the "respectful" evaluation. She has an assignment in the Appellate Term, and during oral argument, if she decides she doesn't like your appellate case or your client, she is not going to disguise it, even if you are a thousand times right. I don't call that even handed, and I certainly wouldn't call her a true pleasure to appear before. Smart? Better look elsewhere.

Even-handed, respectful of attorneys, respectful of jurors - a true pleasure to appear in front of and smart and well prepared - what more can you ask for except to be allowed to try your case - and she does that as well.
