Judge Brigantti-Hughes is an excellent trial judge. She is even-tempered, exceedingly fair and has a wonderful judicial demeanor. I spent close to a month on trial before her and she was quite simply outstanding. She understood the law and the facts exceedingly well. She also kept her composure despite being challenged by a defense attorney looking for a mistrial.

She worked through the lunch hour conducting settlement conferences which is a nice thing

It is unfortunate that Bronx residents and lawyers alike are subject to the ineptiude and personal prejudices of this eminently unqualified judge. It is a sad state of affairs when the judges don't know the standards they should apply and all lawyers are treated as a threat to the judge's authority rather than as colleagues trying to fairly resolve the cases before the court. Also, wouldn't it be a good idea to appoint judges who have actually tried a case in their life? Unfortunately there is nothing positive to say about this judge. Does not belong on the Bench.
