Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY11195
RARELY participates in matters before her. Her motions decisions are severally flawed and reveal a stunning lack of knowledge/understanding/appreciation for the law. An embarrassment to the bench.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY5611
This is a lazy embarrassment to judges everywhere. She is rarely seen in the Courthouse which is probably a good thing . I hope she spends her time outside the courtroom contributing to the County by using her skills clearing refuse from alongside public ways.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY3915
Extremely fair and evenhanded. Has a good law clerk who she listens to. Is very non obtrusive to the case being litigated. Jury had no idea (and parties didn't either) of her view of the case. Works reasonably with counsel to get case settled without imposing any undue pressure. Listens to argument without any pre-judicial opinion and then makes a decision. Overall, a superb jurist well suited for the bench and a pleasure to try an case in front of.
