What others have said about Hon. Carmen Victoria St. George


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY13158
Unqualified either by intellect, professional experience, curiosity, or work ethic. Was manifestly unprepared for various oral arguments in my case, having failed to read the pleadings or motion papers, and displayed bias toward one of the parties. Apparently thought she could just wing it on the oral arguments instead of reading the papers, relying on her superficial gut instinct about the case and a few sound bites from each of the attorneys. As such, all but the simplest points under debate went completely over her head.

If Carmen St. George is your judge, either don’t bother making a motion unless a fifth grader could understand your position, or else be prepared to spend the time and money to appeal if your position doesn’t happen to strike her fancy.


Comment #: NY13066
I have found Justice St. George to be extremely fair. She has always been well prepared for conferences and knows what’s going on. She is efficient and really cares. She is smart and listens. She is an asset to the bench. She tries to move cases, unlike many of her colleagues.


Comment #: NY12347
the most prejudicial judge i have ever encountered in 40+ years; she went so far as to influence the jury as to her thoughts, on the record!
she needs to be removed from the bench immediately

Recently took a verdict before her and she was hard working, smart and unpretentious. She enjoys what she does, will read what you submit, listen to what you have to say and unlike most Judges she makes a real effort to facilitate settlement.


Comment #: NY10454
This judge did not allow the defense to present its case in its entirety after hearing from the plaintiff alone for over 5 weeks. She did not wish to allow telephone records essential to the defense. While she left her seat to observe plaintiff witnesses' exhibits, she did not equally examine those of the defense. She made it clear, early on, that a large payment would be forthcoming if the trial continued. Note that she previously worked for Weitz and Luxenberg.

Carmen St. George is one of the worst judges I've ever encountered. Her own ego is far her worst trait. she failed miserably at attempting to settle a multi-party Labor Law case. She did not have the first clue about contractual indemnity or coverage issues or how to manage disparate interests. Maybe if she listened and learned instead of blustering and talking she would have learned something and been more effective. If you want to be a settling judge, then know the law! Twenty people wasted a day attempting to resolve the case; a colossal waste of everyone's time.

Justice St. George impressed me. She is both pleasant, and intelligent, but is certainly no pushover. She holds both sides feet to the fire, asking tough, informed questions. She was an integral force behind the settlement of the matter before her. If appearing in her Court - come prepared and with authority to settle.
