Comment #: NY4853
He makes his decisions based on class and race. He makes decisions based on his sympathies, instead of with reference to the law. He should be more objective. He is not what one hopes for in a judge. He was a big disappointment. But, if you are the right shade of color and a member of the right economic class, he is definitely the judge for you.


Comment #: NY1973
I've had him once on appeal of an adverse ruling by S.Ct. judge. He exhibited common sense and a sense of fairness.

I don't know how the other rater (there is only one as I write)encountered him. I have had him on three cases, one of which was terribly complex. He reads what you write, he takes notes, he listens. He has common sense and a sense of what is right. What more can you ask of a judge?

This guy could barely speak English. Now he's on the Appellate Division. Go figure!
