small minded, petty, political hack whose staff is as miserable and incompetent as he is. probably the worst judge I have ever been before, and likely a worse person outside the courtroom than he is in it

Atrocious temperament, lack of legal acumen, and couldn't care less what happens as long as a plaintiff gets paid. What could go wrong? Worst of the worst.

Rating:1.0
Comments:
What a nasty, prickly, arrogant person and not bright at all. If he is wrong about something, he cannot take ownership and is on the attack. Some judges have an inappropriate demeanor on the bench but are very bright and know their law and procedure. This judge’s demeanor is not only inappropriate, but he is daft. I’ve learned to say as little as possible when I appear before him; he doesn’t let you speak anyway, and his mind is made up. He’s just a fool.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Rating:1.0
Comments:
This so-called Judge is very condescending and demeaning. From my personal experience, he makes no eye contact and speaks over you when you talk. I literally had to ask if I could have a turn to speak. He asked the other attorney (male) what MY client’s position was several times and never asked me. A general observation I made is that he is very engaging with the male attorneys but not the female attorneys. He is full of threats and intimidation. Guess what? I’m not scared. I will never call him “Your Honor,” because there is nothing about him that seems honorable.

his mean demeanor seems to be a cover for the fact that he is a complete dope. and his staff could be the most whacked out, anxious civil servants I have seen in 20 plus years of practice.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
