Comment #: NY4768
This judge is arrogant and self-absorbed. How is it not a conflict of interest that his wife is the county clerk in the same county that he works in?

This judge is a like rare breath of fresh air. I have always found him to be very fair and practical. Judge Sunshine treats the lawyers and litigants with respect and does his best to listen to all sides prior to making a decision. We need a lot more judges like him.

He will hear your side and give you opportunity to present your argument. You better know the law because he does up to the minute.
