Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY5168
Rating:2.5
Comments:
This judge is not knowledgeable about the law. She does have a nice personality, though. She is pro-defense, and tells you that it's because plaintiffs never appeal her when they lose. She does way too much off the record.

Judge Kern had absolutely no command of the field of law regarding my case. She ruled contrary to established precedent. She said that I could cite cases if it made me feel better, but that her mind was made up. She decides issues that opposing counsel does not even raise.

Complex legal issues seem to befuddle this otherwise pleasant and charming jurist. Not much thought or analysis goes into ant decisions.
