Just does not believe in fairness. Lost my home because of his incompetent manner. Don't get it in writing for farneti. He won't even look at it. Especially when opposing council has him in their back pocket.

In a foreclosure case presented before this judge. Farneti ruled that an unlicensed servicer, who failed and refused to produce the original mortgage note and totally ignored a discovery request has established standing to foreclose. He did not even articulate his decision, just "They established standing"

Knowledgeable, smart, even handed and practical. A fine judge even though he has not always agreed with my position

It's rare you find a street smart yet intellectual judge. Judge Farneti is one of them. I have had two long-standing cases before him. In each case, the ultimate outcome was well-reasoned and proper. He may be a little slow on decisions and his very able law secretary Evan Zuckerman, Esq. (who one day will make a fine judge in his own right) handles alot of the conferences. The part is overly accommodating to counsel. The prior review is completely off base.

Justice Farneti appears to be unable to identify the law(s) governing a particular action, and appears to be equally disinclined to applying the law to the facts of that action.
