Judge Bennett is reckless and incompetent. It is not due to her lack of experience , but merely the lack of intelligence. Her appointment to the bench is an utter abomination .

Judge Bennett doesn't have a clue about what's going on in her courtroom. She makes biased decisions, and depends too heavily on law guardians who only half do their jobs. She's a big disappointment. Get rid of these airhead judges that are not capable of using common sense, but think that they are! I would never vote for her in any election.

After spending years in family court, I can undoubtedly say that Judge Bennett is the worst judge that I have ever been in front of.


Comment #: NY4707
Judge Bennett is big disappointment! How she ever got elected is mind-boggling! People who go to court, go as a last resort. If you have her as a judge, your case will go on and on. It will get litigated to death and she is big on attorneys resolving issues among themselves. Maybe she doesn't realize it may be her job to do that!

Judge Bennett took over for Judge Falanga in Divorce case and never takes the bench. She likes to conduct meetings in chambers, ex parte, with the attorneys, where they are allowed to say anything which of course is not recorded for the record. The one thing a litigant needs in a Divorce case is TRANSPERENCY and this is totally absent. She relies on the statements of attorneys and take their words, especially the Attorney for the Children, as being truthful. I listened to her campaign tape last fall when she was running for Supreme Court Judge and I have yet to see the "INTELLIGENCE" she was boasting about. The one thing that she is showing is the promise to "work with the bar"; as her bias to them is without exception.

wow! how mean can they be to their own staff and lawyers. the buildind and atmosphere in nassau family court is abysmal and it shows. judge bennett is a percieved bully by lawyers and frequently demonstrates a lack of tact in adressing litigants as well. Should be doing support cases, if she could add.

just about the dumbest you will ever find. Has a predisposition to get done quickly and no comprehension of the family court act. Rumours swirl aroung her backround as well as how shw ever got here, but it is a misery. Lawyerys laugh and the staff makes raised eyebrows--can be nasty when challenged
