So after giving custody to a known crackhead mommy and a know drunk grandma the Child is failing second grade. FAILING SECOND GRADE!!! Great job. When the Child lived with the father, the Child excelled at school. Obviously Klein hates stable homes for children if those homes are with the fathers. Absolutely disgusting.

Horrific judge. Robe should be ripped off wretched body. How many children’s lives does she have to ruin before someone does something. Should be investigated.

Carol ( mr magoo ) Klein. You and Jodi Appel Kaplan will rue the day you conspired against a loving father. You will see what you have done soon enough. There are two seats in Hell that await both of you

UPDATE: Mother who was given custody of child has been seen around town in a drunken stupor and we have pictures of her passed out in a Burger King covered in her own puke. Good job CRS and Judge Klein. So instead of a stable two parent home, private school she gets to live with that.

This judge makes a mockery of the countries judicial system. I was involved in a contentious custody case and she ignored all evidence pertaining to mothers unfitness as a parent and instead focused on the minutia of fathers deficients. Ultimately, the child is now in a home where there have been multiple DV calls and incidences, drug overdoses and multiple mental health calls. Child is in custody of alcohol, drug abusing, mentally unstable people. A travesty

A good friend of mine has mad the misfortune of having Judge Klein preside over his family court appearances for close to 5 years now. I've attended a number of these hearings and have been deeply concerned about the way she conducts the proceedings. She is rude, prejudiced, unprepared and condescending. It's tremendously worrisome to know that the fate of a good man and his family is in the hands of this unqualified, cold-hearted woman who should not be in this position. I hope she can be rehabilitated or removed from the bench. She is harming the lives of good people.
