Look out. She gets moody near lunch. Also, once she gets slanted against your client you are done. Anti man on IDV cases.

Big time BIAS against MEN

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9429
Observation is that, before Judge Capeci, defendants are presumed guilty and she is biased and punitive. No even-handedness whatsoever particularly if a minority is before her. She significantly reduces the quality of the bench and is not qualified to handle custody matters. Regrettably, the only losers are the children. The IDV part should be dissolved if this is the best jurist on the bench.

She picks and chooses who she likes and who she doesn't whether they listen to her orders or not. She's extremely moody you never know what mood she'll be in she one minute she is as sweet as can be and the next time she can be arrogant screaming and yelling even at the attorneys. She tends to make false promises goes back on her word and does whatever she feels at the moment. She's a horrible person.
