I don't think the City ever loses in Judge Stallman's part. If they are not a party to your case, he's pretty good. Otherwise.....

Runs from tough choices but always seems to err on the side of NYC and NYCTA, no guts to strike an answer despite 3+ motions

Very good judge. He is respectful to all before him. Also, he is knowledgeable as to the issues before him and listens to both sides. His clerk is also respectful and helpful. His court attorney, on the other hand, is a bit of a diva, quick tempered and, at times, disrespectful. But, if this is the only negative, I'll take it!

An excellent judge. Nicest guy I have ever met on the bench. Welcomed me to his courtroom on the first day of trial and shook my hand. Goes out of his way to show respect for the lawyers, witnesses, jurors, clients, staff. Very fair with his rulings. Very accommodating with witness scheduling. He is a good man, and a great judge. It's a pleasure to have him on the bench.
