This judge clearly has it out for mother's. The most dangerous judge on the bench.

I recently lost a custody battle with my ex who was verbally and physically abusive yet this judge gave him sole legal custody of my 7 year old daughter. I am planning to file a complaint and I was wondering if you would be willing to do the same. Let's have our voices heard!

This judge will take control of your case and 'test' the litigants. She does not follow through with what is ordered on forensics, and uses her own methods to test (manipulate) litigants. She has no ability to think out of the box- she's moody, gets 'into it' head to head with abusers and the child comes out on the losing end. She is uneven in her decisions, and all over the place from one court date to the next. She should be removed before her actions get a child killed, and court appearances are best described as an abusers playground.

Judge Schauer is extremely biased and prejudiced. Her actions show an inability to handle family matters, and she should not be deciding the lives of New York's most vulnerable inhabitants.
