Rating:Not Rated
Weir-Reeves is THE worse magistrate thus far at Manhattan Family Court. She has ZERO interest in getting resolution 2 the case brought before her. She constantly adjourns cases, and does so for more than 30 days. She needs to take a page from Magistrate Troy. He gets to the issue and moves on. I've never had to visit him more than two times. It's almost two hands worth of refiling, adjournment, and no progress with Weir-Reeves. She is the worse!!!!

She is abusive and disgusting. She ruined my husband's life and has indirectly ruined our family. She has no idea what the characteristics of a good father is.

Awful judge, awful person. Nothing honorable about her. Unprofessional, cruel, dismissive, arrogant, lazy, does the minimum, does not show up on a snowy day or inclement weather, does not keep her word or stick to the letter of the law, makes the rules up as she goes along. Does not favor woman or custodial parents at all. In fact she appears to despise other woman and custodial moms and rules against custody agreements and pre-set terms which is not her place to do. Why is she allowed to behave this way? She should be removed immediately. I know it is a difficult job and respect that but there is no reason to behave this way and dehumanize people. Everyone leaves her chambers swearing and cursing, or yelling, or crying. Enough said.

She is a menace who enjoys hearing the sound of her own voice in the courtroom more than anything else. She has no knowledge of the law or the facts of the case and displays a flagrant disregard for the law by denying due process and intentionally delaying time-sensitive proceedings to frustrte litigant's rights and spite their counsel with adjournments rather than letting the parties be heard. She needs to be removed immediatey.

I agree with the above posts. Support Magistrate Cheryl Weir-Reeves is totally out of control and routinely abuses her position.

Like in your situation, she also tampered with my file to remove and throw out evidence that was useful to show that I was a good father and that I paid my child support, she would verbally abuse me on the record, she would motion to her court officers to physically surround and intimidate me when she wanted to terrorize me, and she also would never let me speak, interrupting me throughout, even when she asked me questions.

She has a serious anger management problem, and only writes down what she wants to hear, and butchers your words and changes them to mean something else for her legal opinions.

She is an arch-feminist and African-American bully, belonging 100% to feminist and LGBT special interest groups (they use her because she is a black woman and can therefore get away with being racist, sexist, unethical, and unfair), and she gets off by harassing and terrorizing men, and the problem is, she gets away with it because the NY Family Court is a star chamber that is closed off to the public.

I have spoken to several federal and local law enforcement officers, and it appears that she is already under the microscope and is being investigated by several different federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, and is about to be criminally indicted soon for rampant corruption and chronic abuse of her position on the bench in the Moreland Commission investigation.

She routinely violates the U.S. and New York State Constitutions in her witch hunt against good fathers, and the U.S. Government is well aware of this.

I think that she's malicious and capricious. She has no idea of what a good father is. She is awfully disrespectful towards men.

This woman has a big problem, She needs to withdraw her view of men and start treating us father with more respect. I understand there are fathers that has it coming to them.It seems to me that she put us all in the same boat.
