What others have said about Hon. Sarah L. Krauss


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY4515
Judge Krauss was not for a moment open-minded. She made up her mind long before the case went to trial, and even when the defendant's lawyer got caught lying to her, she didn't hold it against him. And even when the defendant himself was caught on numerous occasions lying to her, she didn't take action or see it as a sign that he was not believable. She would fly off the handle and yell at people, in many cases because she misunderstood what the person said. She was dismissive, and she limited the time to testify, and then held it against the witnesses that they didn't have time to answer all of the questions. Just terrible.


Comment #: NY4301
Extremely biased. Does not pay attention to facts, only her emotions and her own knowledge of things, not individual situations. During trial she was occupied with other matters and could not focus on the hearing. Her order put my sons life in danger and he was one day away from becoming blind. As well when I was finaly scheduled for her again to present that fact, she stated that it was too long ago and was only concerned with the present.
I also felt that she was sexiest against women, as I was talked down to for being a mother in the military. She suggested that I abanded my child because of my military obligation. While simultaneously praising the child's father for being in the military and gave him too much leeway for his constant absence from the child's life.
