Judge Sherry Klein Heiter, the "Beauty Parlor" Judge, is know to coif and groom herself on office time. She works along with Judge Laura Drager in New York City "Divorce Company", where rich men get richer, by making richer lawyers even richer. She has overlooked Domestic Violence, Tax Fraud, Federal Bankruptcy Fraud and Corruption to further the bottom line of Drager's Divorce Company.
Heitler has been effective in ignoring the cries of countless women and children who have had their homes unlawfully seized. Maybe she can't hear the injustice, because the drone of the hair dryer in the beauty parlor is drowning it out.

A really good judge. I have not had occasion to try a case before her, but her handling of pretrial matters, including complex motions, is exemplary. A pleasure to work in front of.

To call her biased, unfair and without any sense of justice does not accurately capture Judge Heitler's eccentric brand of jurisprudence. But I am being kind. Judge Heitler will not hesitate to engage in ex parte communications with either party. She has no regard for the rules and little regard for the law. In one of several cases in which I appeared before her, she decided the entire claim from the outset solely on the basis of the plaintiff's complaint. Her decision was made clear from the outset of the case, in advance of any opposing papers or testimony.
Judge Heitler's behavior is neither abusive nor particularly unprofessional - just ridiculous. At various times during the course of a case she will ask that the litigants "smile." If a male judge would have made that request to a female litigant, it would no doubt have been the subject of a sexual bias complaint. Judge Heitler, on the other hand, behaved more like my grandmother than a judge. Her rulings, ultimately, are wildly flawed and in one instance she refused to enter her judgment to permit the losing party to appeal. Time for Judge Heitler to retire.
