What others have said about Hon. James P. McCormack


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY7686
Not much a grasp on complex litigation and not respect to the Appellate Divison over turing him

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: NY6862
I cannot support the positive reviews of this jurist. His decision in a major recent political case reflected deep prejudice in favor of vested interests as opposed to the public at large. His decisions are simplistic and the logic self-fulfilling, rather than nuanced and defensible. He has a genteel veneer and the manner of a judge, but is empty at core. His staff is less polished and similarly vapid.

I wish he could be cloned. I cannot state enough good things about him, and I can state that I have no negative things to say. Bravo!

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY491
It is a pleasure to be in his courtroom. Wonderful man. One of the few Nassau judges who will give a plaintiff an even break.
