Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY5225
Rating:2.0
Comments:
This judge received a vote of no confidence from the Bar. It is clear why he received such a vote. He was transferred from Civil Court to Family Court, and was the highest paid judge in New York last year. He cannot make a decision, and thus should not be a judge. He voids a litigant's right to appeal by simply not deciding -- which really is a decision against the motion applicant. He ignores multiple motions and leaves them without decision, yet somehow those motions get marked as decided in the QFC system. He seems afraid of appeal, and does everything to void your right to it. He has no basic understanding of family law. He is biased, and treats pro se litigants in an awful manner. He ignores the law blatantly. He needs a very competent law clerk.
