Civil Litigation - Private

I remember when this judge was appointed as a criminal judge and heard misdemeanors. She wasn't bad. Then years later, she came into the guardianship part and either the subject matter got to her or she had just had enough of being on the bench and started sanctioning all these lawyers. It was really amazing to see. I had her on one case where there were no problems except she insisted that I had the ward's assets in the wrong account. It was not; it simply was not. I had been using that account for years and it was known by other judges, yet for some reason she had it in her head her own mini-rules. I hate to say it, but was glad the ward died shortly thereafter - she was demented in a nursing home and had no life. Really, I was afraid to do anything on the case. It made me decide never to do a guardianship case ever again. It was like she was conducting a witchhunt everytime you had any dealings with her. I am glad they moved her to Queens before I submitted my final accounting.

Both lazy and incompetent - not a winning combination. Throw her arrogance into the mix and she hits the trifecta of awfulness.

Biased. Not intellectually competent. Disrespectful to counsel.

There is nothing good to say about this judge's conduct towards lawyers from the bench. Please send her back to Family Court where she can berate deadbeat dads instead of lawyers. She does not read the papers, is not knowledgeable about the law, appears never to have practiced, and merely picks the lawyer that she likes best instead of ruling properly on the issues.
