Truly vile, vicious person. Absolute horror show as a judge. Both she and her equally nasty, little troll like law clerk would smirk, sneer, and make catty comments about whoever was unfortunate enough to be before them. No idea how this vile person ever became administrative judge at 100 Centre Street because not only wasn't she smart but she had all the professionalism of a reptile. The end of her judicial reign of terror could not come fast enough.

Dear Judge Scherer: Back in1999/2000 I was convicted of a fifth degree Felony for a kickback to a union Official, received 5 years probation and served 2 1/2 years. Is there someway I can get the felony reduced to a misdemeanor ?

A truly awful judge. Universally disliked by lawyers, clerks, officers, litigants, and even some of her fellow judges. Exceedingly hostile, antagonistic, disagreeable, and nasty to one and all. Both she and her loathsome little law clerk, who seemed to be permanently joined at the hip to her on the bench, would then habitually make life as unbearable and unpleasant as possible for all those who were unfortunate enough to share the same courtroom as them.

She managed to alienate defense attorneys, prosecutors, court officers and fellow judges. Everyone in 100 and 111 Centre Street breathed a sigh of relief when she retired.
