Comment #: NY8362
The judge should not be on the bench with the temperament he has. He does not allow you to say a word to state your position. Punishes attorneys by adjourning their cases for a long date not thinking about real litigants who suffer from it. The worst judge I have ever seen.

Comment #: NY8361
Not smart. Nasty. Demeaning, particularly to female attorneys. Doesn't even seem to understand the most basic issues. And he's dumb enough to put it all on the record for the App Div to see. In 25 years I've seen some really bad judges in Brooklyn, but this one is by far the worst.

Comment #: NY6118
Probably the most volatile, temperamental, and unprofessional judge I have been before. He should not be on the bench.


Comment #: NY5793
Not only should Mr. Solomon be off the bench, but he should be brought to trial for defaming the seat by his behavior, causing the courts to spend extra monies on appeals, hurting the cause of some cases and just being an unacceptable public servant.

This judge is rude, arrogant, and does not really care about following the law.

Comment #: NY3007
Judge Solomon makes up his mind before the parties are allowed to state their positions. I would agree that he is callous and nasty.

Comment #: NY1707
Judge Solomon is a callous, nasty, biased judge who, in my opinion, should not be on the bench.

His arrogance and hubris have no boundaries.

If I could give a rating of zero I would do it.


Comment #: NY1706
Judge Solomoni is a callous, nasty, biased Judge who, in my opinion, should not be on the bench.

Comment #: NY1678
His main problem is uneven temperament. He also believes he is much smarter than he is. Otherwise, there are worse assignments.

Justice Solomon tries to resolve issues practically and quickly. He is a good student of the law. His clerk, Pepper, definitely helps to move cases. One can be confident that justice will be dispensed in his courtroom.
