Comment #: NY7438
Rating:Not Rated
Thank God she retired from the bench. She did more harm than good. Cranky, contemptuous, condescending. Allowed cases to drag out and drag out indefinitely, to the detriment of the children she was supposed to be looking out for in Family Court.

Judge Genchi has always been a shining example of a judge for the young female practitioners seeking a role model. She gave her time when she could, and always with a dignified grace (that required of a sitting judge) and with expert judicial temperament. Judge Genchi managed her courtroom, her calendar, the litigants, and the attorneys with the required ability to rein in those who needed such treatment, but also to provide empathy to those who deserved it. I have always looked up to Judge Genchi. She is a judge who is a shining example for young female attorneys looking for a shining star. Her legal skills are unquestioned. Thank you, Judge Genchi, for your years of service to our county. (My ratings speak for themselves.)
