Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY8323
Rating:3.5
Comments:
She is ever so slow in deciding dispositive motions. It is terribly unfair to both the litigants and their attorneys. There seems to be no concern for the orderly handling of her calendar.

Almost a 1 1/2 years for a decision in a civil case for summary judgment. Pre Trial Conference has been adjournment 4 times over that period because of it.

Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:3.0
Comments:
Wholly unprofessional, entitled, sarcastic, unprofessional (dare I say it again), embarassing. That is just at trial...on the papers, her decisions, both favorable and unfavorable, are well thought out and respectable. So she has a great staff, but not the disposition to be a judge.
