Elisa Koenderman is a racist, she has no pity and take sides with evil women in court cases in order to extremely punish good men and take away any rights they might have left. She is a hardcore lesbian feminist who needs to be hanged from her rubber hip harnessed dildo. She is inhuman and President Trump needs to obliterate her from such inadequate position in where she lacks dexterity. She is a living demon in disguise.

Do you really think a decent and fair minded person is going to be allowed to remain in the judges position? The government needs people like Elisa to ensure they win cases.

This Judge needs to try harder. She is a combination of below average intelligence in legal matters and lack of work ethic. I feel bad for her law secretaries who must suffer her everyday. She is not even pleasant to the litigants, even snarky in her rare written opinions if you were fortunate enough not to have your motion marked off for some idiotic reason. Pity the litigant who draws her as a judge. You will wish you had a Kangaroo on the bench, literally a real live Kangaroo from the queens zoo. Your chances at justice would be about the same and the Kangaroo is less likely to be rude.

This is the worst judge I have ever appeared before in IDV Court. She did no allocutions on pleas and yelled at DV victims women and children who were accused of committing crimes in her abusive ex-partner. I saw the "her bark is worse than her bite" comment - that's no excuse for a judge. On bail, she was horrendous, seemingly unimpressed by serious violent allegations. Hard to believe she's a judge.

She is not competent to retain information nor does she have any abilities for seeking resolution for litigants. She clearly had not read the file - or truly is impaired.

She is a horrible Judge and should be removed from the bench. She does not care what is in the best interest of the child. This Judge has her mind made up before and has no interest in listening to what the law guardians and lawyers have to say. Queens County you must remove her.

She has no concern for the children I really think she hates kids this is why she puts them with the worst parent or in the worst situation. I don't understand why they allow her to stay on the bench isn't there laws to protect us against people like her? Because she wears a robe she can do whatever she wants how is this justice. Why don't we all get together and get her off the bench because if she isn't going to protect our children then we then we need to. I'm going to talk to someone about this and if anyone else wants to join me then let me know.

Very one sided and CHOOSES to take as fact any and all accusations made, even in domestic violence situations. She does not take into account the children's wishes nor does she choose to see how they are effected by her decisions. She may be nice but she isn't 'qualified' for IDV court, despite all her training.

A chain is as strong as its weakest link. The justice system is under duress because a weak link has been exposed.

This judge is blatantly biased, obsessed with the flirtation of justice and more emotional and spiteful than a rabid creature.

Judges like Baur would make people lose faith in the justice system. Why is she still on the bench is beyond me.

Judge needs to be reprimanded or disbarred.

The most evil and worst judge, emotional judgment, has no legal basis to help those abusive men to shut up women and children of domestic violence victims. The unfair judgment was appealed to the federal court several times. The good news is that she is being investigated by the DOJ Crime Victim's Office.

She will destroy woman's and children's life in favor of man. Your children will be forced to drive 5 days a week for visitations with abuser father. She will ignore children's best interest, law guardian opinion, forensic reports. She will put women in prison for impossibility to comply with her own orders. Her rulings are always in favor of man, not children.

Based upon my appearances before her in Criminal Court and discussions with colleagues, I recommended that my client waive a jury for a domestic violence case in the IDV Part. The Judge was fair to both sides and excellent with objections - she knows the law well. The Judge did not simply accept the word of the female complaining witness. After considering the mounds of evidence that undermined the woman's credibility the Judge found my client not guilty.
