Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY9513
Rating:1.0
Comments:
Judge Bannon displays an astounding disregard for the law and contempt for scholarship. She is vapid, condescending, and does not want to do the work - and, as a result, she has no idea what is happening. She doesn't know who the litigants are, what they are requesting, or how the law applies to resolve a dispute. She issues unclear, equivocal, ambiguous, and outright incorrect orders and expects litigants to "figure it out" at the threat of being sanctioned. She is well on her way toward being one of the most widely overturned justices on the bench and, to mitigate against future reprisals by her superiors, she seems to have committed herself to a strategy of refusing to issue written orders at all. After all, you can't be wrong if there's no proof? Right?

In short, Judge Bannon is a hack, a complete disgrace to the profession, and has been elevated to the bench on the tails of a political ticket that nobody bothered reading.

If you ever need a reason to lose all hope in the judicial system in NYS, look no further than Judge Bannon.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: NY9107
Rating:Not Rated
Comments:
Atrocious is a huge understatement. She blatantly lied in a 8/9/17 decision she issued after she blatantly lied in a denied Order to Show Cause notice dated 8/4/17, flagrantly violated CPLR 2219's 60-day deadline for issuing a decision, refused to allow a litigant sufficient time to present oral arguments on 6/7/17, granted a NYC government agency an adjournment of a hearing in April of 2017 in spite of the fact that it violated the requirement of notifying the opposing side of that request prior to granting it, and wrongfully denied a litigant the ability to use a hybrid proceeding against that government agency.

Profoundly unqualified. A hack. Unfit for duty. A disgrace to the legal profession

One of the worst judges handling civil cases back in 2015. Super ego and nasty comments to the attorneys. I am reading some of these ratings and I know the high ones have to be from friends of hers and not real critics.

[Redacted by Ed.] I had filed a personal suit against her from a matter where she owed a debt, prior to becoming a judge, and when I drew her on an Order to Show Cause she made me wait 5.5 hours and then refused to recuse herself, all the while glaring at me

Hardworking, intelligent and thoughtful. She is a force to be reckoned with, in the most positive sense.

Justice Bannon was highly engaged, obviously smart and prepared, and treated all counsel with respect, giving everyone a chance to make points and counterpoints.

Not "evenhanded" combined with poor judicial temperment.

I am surprised at the other comments - I thought she was a good trial judge. A listener, and very thoughtful. She cut short my cross-examination of a doctor, and, after initially being miffed, I realized I had gone on way too long. I deserved it. D'oh!
