If I had to choose one word to describe her it would be INDIFERENT. I personally think she only thinks of herself and the way she looks - -that is the only thing seem to matter to her: her looks... very passive and indifferent:you lol get nothing done if she handles her case ... most likely the case will last forever till she will be transferred to another court by reelection( she seems to be always on the list for reelection - you may wonder why ) and your case then will be transfered to another judge. Honestly , if she gets assigned to your case - run - it will save you some money - request somebody else ... trust me she is too indifferent .... to take care of your real issues .... we even have a nickname for her "a bubble head" : her hair is more important thanyour issues that she sssigned to resolve

This judge doesnt listen to litigAnts. Law secretary does all the interviewing and gives her "opinion" to the judge. When you appear in front of judge she doesn't even look at you. Law guardian was probably 90 and kept calling child by another name?????
Dysfunctional families need help with coping skills. Family court only aides in divisiveness.

Bennett has no regard for anyone. [Redacted by Ed.] In my case my X removed everything from our home before the decision was signed and moved everything into her new boyfriends house who happened to be a NYC cop. Of course Bennett did nothing about the X or the cop breaking the law, because nothing was to be removed until it was decided by the judge. [Redacted] There is much more and I am sure that their are many people that have the same issues with her. When a judge is fair in both directions, he or she cannot be judged unfairly. In Bennett's case, the reality is that she has her staff making her discussions for her and they are just as clueless as she is. My question is where are the weights and measures for a judge like Bennett. With all terrible ratings for her, why isn't she asked to step down. Judges need to look at these ratings much closer because there are lives that get destroyed because of there careless actions.

Passive. Almost an observer rather than an adjudicator. Seems to like being a Judge, but not actually being a judge. Decisions devoid of law. Does not control her courtroom. Allows bullying.

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.

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!

[Redacted by Ed.] 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.
