Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY6765
I litigated several landlord tenant cases in front of Judge Stoller. I was very concerned initially about him given certain facts. However, he's a nice guy who is smart, he tries to find out the law and apply it fairly. He does not go beyond what he feels the law permits. I did not agree with all of his rulings and believe: (1) he (unfairly) denied my (substantial) attorney fee request after I won the LT trial on the merits, mainly because he was throwing a bone to my (sorry, arrogant, but well-connected) opponent and (2) he unfairly reversed an earlier ruling of his own after he realized that this ruling would decide the case in my favor and against my opponent. Other than that, I felt like he fairly considered my legal arguments during the four day trial, even when we attorneys got into some very bitter (read "personal" and "vicious") arguments. I actually think he should not have allowed our arguments to get so aggressive (particularly opposing counsel's). But it was a court trial and he was obviously not seriously fazed in the least by our attacks upon each other. I enjoyed trying my case in front of him (and greatly enjoyed destroying my opponent's stupid arguments and case, who I would greatly enjoy seeing buried face first in the sand of the nearest beach until that ugly smirk is wiped completely from his face and his soft, overweight body goes limp).

A very nice judge for housing court. Young, bright eyed and up for the task. Professional demeanor too.
