What others have said about Hon. J. Scott Odorisi


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY9668
The Plaintiff that sued me for slander in Monroe County NYS Supreme Court was a Defendant in a Federal Criminal Case in which I had Federal Witness Immunity. Judge Odarisi denied my motion for dismissal, while completely disregarding my Federal Immunity status. It was frivolous litigation and Plaintiff's attorney should have been sanction for this obstruction of justice.

In my case he was biased, ignored the law, ignored evidence, and repeatedly engaged in exparte communications.


Comment #: NY8036
Disregards the rule of law; ignores evidence; can't see the forest for the trees.

Comment #: NY7119
A lazy jurist who focuses on the minutiae and letter of the law but refuses to look at the bigger picture, often leading to absurd results. Very plaintiffs oriented.

This is a brand new judge. I've had only a few appearances before him, but early indications are that he will be excellent. He has a good grasp of the law, is well-prepared, and has a great demeanor.
