Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY4758
Rating:1.9
Comments:
I have been on trial before this judge twice and he was awful, dictatorial, obnoxious, and very partial to the plaintiff, which was so obvious to the jury that it actually accrued to my benefit in the long run. I won my trials in spite of this judge, who did everything he could to railroad my client during the course of the trial. My client sent a representative who made a generous six-figure offer, and he threw the representative out of his robing room in a very mean-spirited and disrespectful manner. The jury ultimately award the plaintiff $0.00, so the judge was foolish not to get the plaintiff to settle the case. He was horrible and was later transferred to the criminal side of the court, much to the pleasure of many lawyers in the Bronx who practice on the civil side and were glad to be rid of him.
