Accurate description. Very nice man but lazy. Did not want to deal with the case at hand. Clearly didn’t read the facts and decides to end a case because a co worker was upset. These are some of the things wrong with todays judicial system. Trials take time. If you don’t want to sit there and take the time and hear the facts then you shouldn’t be in this line of work. Very unethical.

The two negative comments below must have been written by those who lost their cases because both comments are pure BS and nonsense. Obviously, one side has to lose. That doesn’t make the judge who ruled against you a bad judge. It just makes you angry. So stop bashing the man just because your angry you lost.

Justice Dane is a brilliant, competent, hardworking judge. I have appeared before him many many times. Sometimes I’ve won. Sometimes I lost. When I lost, it didn’t make Justice Dane a bad judge. He always carefully weighed the facts snd worked very hard to make the right decision.

Justice Dane is one of the best and finest judges New York has to offer snd anyone who bashed him just because they lost their case should be ashamed of themselves.

Lazy & incompetent. Iv'e never seen a judge more averse to actually making a judgement. If you happen to be lucky enough to get a ruling, you might as well use it as kindling as he will in no way uphold his orders. Utterly worthless & basically embodies all that is wrong with the system. Not quite sure what landed him in this profession beyond maybe being politically well connected but its not a good fit.

Completely incompetent. No decisions are ever made in his court room. No recollection of what has transpired on prior court dates and he let's his incompetent law clerk make all his decisions without having any knowledge of the facts and issues before him.

They should clone this guy. What a magnificent jurist! Great temperment, brilliant, vast knowledge of the law, and always professional. He is everything a citizenry could possibly want out of a judge. Listens to all sides, cares, very hands on and always fair. A pleasure to appear before.
