Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY13636
In a complex med mal case, she was a terrible judge. Doesn't know the law, doesn't really understand trial practice and absolutely doesn't get medical malpractice. Not a great choice to sit on the bench on a complex case. Seems like a very nice woman, but just don't understand how someone like this becomes a judge?


Comment #: NY12078
IF it were possible to rate this judge as less than a single star, I would rate her that way. She is biased. She either does not understand the law or uses plausible deniability to get around a clear understanding of the law. She favors attorneys responsible for her getting appointed and anyone else, no. Her law clerk is great at finding ways around fairness though not great if her understanding really is as bad as it seems. She does what she wants, modifies her court rules when she wants and does so with a patronizing smile.

She lacks judicial temperament. Fails to digest issues well. Lacks understanding of the law. Extremely biased. She needs a better law clerk to help her with an unbiased adjudication of the law. Both should be removed from the court system for lack of knowledge and fairness.

Incapable of understanding complex litigation, ignorant of the law, willfully stupid, and her law clerk is no better.

Horrible and biased judge who ignores the law and does want she wants. Should not be on the bench.
