Comment #: NY12065
An appointee of the mayor, this clown is not only stupid but a judicial idiot. Would qualify as one of the Marx brothers.

Who let this grumpy idiot become a judge? Miserable demeanor on the bench, awful to attorneys, and biased in his rulings. Makes sure people know he used to work at the Appellate Division, but it does not show in his rulings. Being pro-defense is fine, but at least be a scholar doing it. The Daily News called him the Grumpiest Judge in New York, and they were not wrong.

A miserable human being. Starts fights with the lawyers in front of him for no reason. He really likes to be nasty and argue with people. I call him Krohns Disease; a disgusting miserable bastard. Why doesn't he retire? He obviously hates his job.

Had him set bail on an AG Medicaid fraud indictment. While it was late in the day and everybody was out of gas, he patiently gave us as much time as we wanted, heard each side, asked appropriate questions, quickly grasped the arguments of each side and set a reasonable bond (250K, while AG requested 1MM) that my client posted one week later. A bit surly, but perhaps b/c it was so late in the day and the cases just keep coming and coming in TAP-A.
