Judge Susan Knipps today June 18th 2014, allowed my grandson to be adopted by an orthodox jew family. My case to get custody has been going on for over 6 years. She allowed the opposition to get any and everything they wanted.Long Story but the foster fathers father was a supreme court judge in Brooklyn. He sat on the Bench until he died about a year or so ago.
She allowed them to delay the case even though she was warned that the case needed to be expedited before they say my grandson bonded with them . She allowed the case to continue for 6 years.Much more to this story.

An awesome judge who has made my life greater.

She is one of the worst judges. A crual and uneducated blue collar dictator. She tries to protect herself and her own interests to destroy families and children.
I have never seen a judge with a dictator agenda to destroy the core of family justice.
Every dog have a day and judge Knipps day will come.

Being in court is never a win win situation, and I didn't always like how Judge Knipps always made both of us pay for evaluators etc. I felt like it should have been the non-custodial parent's obligation to pay since it was his motion. However, I think she makes decisions squarely, fairly and definitely in the best interest of the children. This is something that many judges, in my experience, don't manage to do properly.
