If there was a pictionary dictionary - his photograph would be listed under Moron, Incompetent, Dummy, Judicial Idiot.

I cannot believe this guy is a Judge.

Rating:Not Rated
I was a pro-se litigant given absolutely no assistance when bringing an action against parties that committed fraud. Never saw the judge except one time in the course of nearly 3 years of litigation

If you have Judge Adams your case ask for a RECUSE immediately! He has no clue as to what the laws are, is very political, impartial and doesn't read memorandums. Allows himself to be pushed in favor of attorneys that are covering up frauds not wanting the frauds to be exposed. Horrible judge.

Judge Adams is an old fashioned judge. He has a common sense approach to the law that cuts thru all the bull. He usually gets it right.

DUMMY is the only way to describe him. A disaster on the Appellate Division, he went back to the trial court, where the disaster continues. Knows very little elementary law and is cowed by who the attorney is. Very political. If you are on the other side of his political mentor, watch out.

Defense tried to vacate a default judgement. He has no clue about the intricacies of FC law. I wish he would take a look at some key decisions before letting someone bully him into a decision. Out of his league if you ask me. These judges have no incentive to read memorandums
