Comment #: NY5410
I tried a case with this judge--a slam dunk for the prosecution. Not only did the judge offer the defendant a very attractive plea that would have avoided immigration consequences, but she also conducted an otherwise unscheduled suppression hearing and did considerable research on the issue before (a) ordering the hearing and (b) ruling on it. She was generous with my cross despite the People's objection. I don't understand the complaints. She can be brusque in the part, but she works HARD to get the right answer.

This judge is very, very, very unpleasant to deal with. She apparently hates doing trials. She is very pro-prosecution and is anxious to use anything to rail against the defendant.

She is rude and nasty to all and shows a lack of respect to everyone. She tries so hard to move a case quickly that she forces you to begin trial when subpoenas have not been returned and neither side is ready. Not a pleasant judge in any regard but clearly must have known someone in order to get the appointment. Shame she will be on the bench for years to come and hoping one day she is forced to have a serious attitude adjustment.
