Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY5371
Please see my ratings of this Judge. It speaks volumes and no comment is necessary.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY5370
This judge incarcerated me illegally without a hearing. All five Applet Justices unanimously agreed that I be freed from jail. A word to all litigants and Lawyers. Do not go into her "torture chambers" without a stenographer! Sneaky, mouse like disgusting person. She should be holding hearings in small claims court and not matrimonial matters. Terrible demeanor and unfit to wear the robe. Beware of this evil person! Has to be removed from the bench.

If this is whom Chief Administartive Judges choose to sit in important parts than they are the ones to blame for this incompetent judge's actions. Check her reviews and see what is going on in her Court room! Wake up and can her! Worst Justice Ever!

Rating:Not Rated
Watching this judge operate is truly gut-wrenching. She abuses everyone: lawyers, defendants and plaintiffs. She never reads motions nor supporting papers or exhibits. Not one statement that she makes is grounded in facts, nor does it abide by the letter of the law. She forbids due process, and makes stuff up as she goes along. Reading up on her lately, it's good to know that many that go before her have filed complaints with the judicial commission. She knows nothing about matrimonial law and should be removed from the bench.


Comment #: NY4312
Unqualified to sit on any bench, anywhere, for any reason.


Comment #: NY3508
Bias, prejudicial, suppresses evidence and needs to be removed from the bench, and federal charged under the color of law.
