Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY7828
Really a very decent guy who demonstrated a willingness to push the City when he sat in the City part (which is rare). Wrote some well thought out opinions and seems to actually care about the attorneys before him.

When is someone going to stop his court clerk from solicitating, much less actually taking?

Extrememly fair, very competent and even tempered. He understands the issues and allows the parties lay out their arguments before making a decision. It's a pleasure and an honor to litigate in his courtroom.
