Litigant

Comment #: NY12343
Rating:Not Rated
Comments:
Judge Troia, is a bias and racist. I have the misfortune to appear before him as a pro se litigant. On 2 occasions he has literally denied me even the right to speak. And during these 2 conferences he has spoken to me as if I orchestrated the 911 attacks. Further, he is demanding that this pro se litigant sign release forms from the defendants that contain "BLANK SPACES" Another words the defendants can put in anything they want AFTER THE FACT. Finally, as a pro se litigant I did not understand part of his bias ruliung and attempted to ask him to clarify his order, he has the unmitigated gall to hand up the phone on me in mid-sentence. In part this bias judge is prejudiced to this plaintiff because I have a criminal past.

Numbers over people, his self preservation trumps all- he thinks he’s doing you a favor by not dismissing your case no matter what the law is, has he ever tried a case as a lawyer? I think not

Appeared before this Judge on a civil matter ( a motion). It was a heavy calendar but what I found unique was that he seemed to get annoyed when lawyers had not served their papers in advance so that he could read them before argument. I appreciated that a judge actually read the papers I took the time to write , instead of just having them there for the record. My first impression was a good judge , knows the law and listens

Defendants judge by far. He worked for defense firms before becoming a law secretary and it shows. More interested in dispositions than a fair result, selectively follows 2nd Dept case law but only if in favor of the defendant

One of the few judges that actually understands the CPLR and current case law. You never have to worry about trying your case in front of this judge = he does not interfere with your presentation and is is fair-handed.

Judge Troia is one of the few workers in the courthouse - I guess he is trying his best to resolve cases (as to impress the OCA Ivory Tower numbers crunchers(. He is young and he treats lawyers as a peer. Respectful and courteous, never assuming. He was a defense lawyer for many years (and tends to evaluate cases a bit lower than most judges), but aside from that, he really wants to help people.

awesome man...worked hard as a lawyer, a law secretary, and now as judge. He is making his bones in Richmond County and would like to become Acting Supreme and/or Supreme.

He really sticks his neck out to do the right thing. You can talk to him to make things work.

Judge Trioa is well-prepared for each case that is assigned to his part. He understands the cases and knows the law. He treats all attorneys and litigants before him with respect -- and, more importantly, listens to both sides. His rulings, whether you agree with them or not, are, for the most part, correct.

A great legal secretary became an excellent judge. He is knowledgeable, courteous, fair and knows the law. The political hacks and committees finally got one right!

I have appeared before this judge both in civil and criminal matters. It is very rare that someone can handle both...but this judge can. I was just as impressed with appearing before him in civil court as I was in criminal court. It is also refreshing to see a judge interested in the law and that does his own work. Kudos to a real judge!
