Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:7.1
Comments:
Judge Schreiber is very smart and knows the substantive law. Her temperament is horrible. She has zero empathy for represented tenants and insists they settle even if their landlord harassed them and brought a bogus eviction case. She regularly demeans lawyers.
Her temperament is like Jeckyl & Hyde. Some days she's very pleasant and others she's just nasty. She has no capacity to take constructive criticism

Garbage, the reason why this country is failing so serve the people, she works only for the landlords and her crooked BAR lawers, she shuts down pro-se, does not help actual people in need. If democracy was involved in our justice system, she would have be removed along time ago along with Judge Laurie Lau.

Not a pleasant demeanor, more interested in clearing her calendar and leaving at 4:00 than seeking justice.

Rude, rude, rude. Dismissed 90% of my defenses as "irrelevant" before she fully listened to them. People like "Honorary" Schreiber perpetuate the "injustice system".

She didn't even notice that the landlord's attorney wrote "2016" on the date of the stipulation until I pointed that out.

This woman was unfair in every way. She refused petitioner and respondent the right to approach the bench and hear the proceedings, she refused to allow the respondent to speak in her defense, she refused to allow any evidence or witness on the respondents behalf. If she is the best of the four in Housing Court then we are all doomed to live in a box under the bridge!

Horrid.
She discussed the stipulation with the tenant (who owed six months rent) very diligently and kindly. NEVER even looked at me, the LL. I's as if I weren't even there. When I tried to say something, she blurted "keep quiet!". I had heard that she is the most leftist housing court judge in NYC, but she's even worse than I had expected.

Waited 3 hours to get to Housing Part B bench. Informed that without building violation (HPD passed my inspection along to DOB) judge would not examine photos of building neglect. I was under impression that rules of evidence exist per Housing Court website and Nolo Press book on tenant self help. Felt pressured to withdraw proceeding w/o prejudice. Total time before bench two minutes. Never given name of opposing counsel. Overall perspective: how overwhelming it is for judges and lawyers in this part; 40 cases before my name was called. Lost trust in legal system.

A friend of mine was a rent stabilized tenant of over 10 years in a building where the landlord never gave written leases. She was so pro-landlord it was disgusting. She constantly sustained ridiculous objections made by the landlord's aggressive lawyer, and prevented the tenant's attorney from getting the most basic and relevant evidence admitted. She was angry and rude to the tenant and his attorney, and clearly favored the landlord. She refused to allow the tenant's rebuttal witneses to testify that the landlord's only witness was a liar. Her conduct and demeanor in the courtroom were outrageously biased and deplorable, and represent everything I hate about civil litigation after 22 years of practice. She had no qualm evicting a tenant who presented clear evidence of a landlord-tenant relationship for over 10 years. It's shocking how hostile and rude she is to tenants and their rights.
