Spent the entire trial fiddling with his Ipad. Worked about 2 hours per day tops. Laughable that this guy wears robes.

Self righteous, arrogant, likes to hear himself talk about nothing anyone cares about. Even speaking to the jury they were looking at this judge like are you done yet!!? Move on!! He was late but was oh so worried about lunch breaks and getting out before 4:30. He should take a look at the judge in the Jodi Arias trial and maybe get some

You would think this judge got paid by the number of hours the jury sat waiting..... Loves to hear himself talk .... Understatement, pompous and arrogant, "but I digress" ....seriously intimidates lay witnesses, but allows "experts" to carry on at length... Honestly believe that he was playing games on his iPad at times during the trial! Definitely doubles the time we all needed to be there... What a waste of time and money !

This judge is a lazy pompous malingerer. He arrived to court late every day, and dragged out a 3-day trial into 3 weeks, tiring out the jury, to where they no longer paid attention and just wanted to go home without any mindful deliberations. He looooves to hear himself talk. Yet nothing of value comes out of his mouth. This judge is an embarassment to the bench and to humanity in general, as he has the power to ruin lives, which he has on countless occasions. Take the gavel away from this urchin.

The absolute cartoon clown of the bench. An embarrassment to the bench with a touch of the surreal to boot. You can't do worse than Antonio.

Observed a trial and this Moron Mirandized a defendant because he heard jurors talking outside of court. Does not know the law and the PJI is He refused to bust a jury even though an offending juror admitted to the conversation. I was in total awe as a co-D, who was a missing witness and had the Plaintiff and defendant testify he was speeding get hit for ZERO percent because of his "charges" Really felt bad for the attorney who got hit but he just smiled and said "God does not like ugly!" Judge then tried to explain to the plaintiff not to take the settlement. Put the plaintiff's attorney at risk and that is when the defendant almost lost it. Suggest you see the Administrative Judge after any of his rulings. Harlem must really miss this guy. Defendant refused to sign the charge sheet and all heck broke loose. The more the judge attempted to intimidate the attorney, the more the attorney smiled. Seems the guy was a Vietnam Vet and retired cop so he was not going to back down.

He's sooooo dumb. He tells the dumbest anecdotes and stories to the jury. I've heard them over and over! Everyone has! "They had a sign at the Bronx Zoo, 'the most dangerous animal' I strained to see what it was inside. It turned out to be a mirror---man is most dangerous animal! gasp" He gets ghetto and quotes Tina Turner for the PJI to set aside sympathy "what love got ta do with it?" He was late and held my jury, but apologized and said "because there was a sale on silver dollar pancakes!" Is this nuts? He's the laughingstock of Nassau. Good Job committee to qualify judges. No, this isn't a joke, it's all true!

Pompous, disruptive, verbose, and stupid. This guy is the grand slam of terrible judging. Send him back to New York City and get a real judge to replace him. He screws defendants and then, in order to stop them from appealing his lousy decisions, he offers them a "get-out-of-jail-free card." Talks to hear himself talk, thinks he is a law professor constantly lecturing the attorneys who have the misfortune of appearing in front of him. This judge is completely out of his league when it comes to having a discussion about the law. Run from this guy if you can.
