Takes the path of least resistance in deciding motions. Hides. Maybe he's a good trial judge, one atty seems to think so. I'm guessing that atty won big.

Terrible, heartless judge. I would be shocked if this guy ever actually practiced law; if he did, he was probably terrible at it.

I was on trial with Justice Weiss on a significant personal injury matter. He was attentive bright and open to reconsider his trial rulings. He is not a pompous ass; he is scholarly and a joy to be before.

unethical, misspells words, goes against the cplr and puts things in his short form order that isn't factual and just stupid for a judge in the qns supreme court-its embarrassing-does anybody know if I can recuse him

This thug recently got re-elected with only 10% of the vote, and now will preside over his courtroom until the year 2025. God help us.

I remember him from when I attended PC's in my earlier days when he was a law secretary on Queens Blvd. and always had fun with him--sorry to hear he's turned into another power laden ahole.

Comment #: NY2545
Defense counsel was showing up for motions with new documents that he had failed to serve upon plaintiff's counsel beforehand, as required. When I asked to see the judge to complain about this tactic, the judge was so bothered about being asked to leave his back room for a few minutes, into the main courtroom, that he tore up my motion in front of me, without even reading it, and basically kicked me out of his courtroom. A real nut case. Has no problem hurting a client's case just so he can get back at a lawyer and prove his point -- although the only point seems to be to leave him alone. Can't really comment on his judicial skill because he didn't display any -- he was AWOL.

Does this judge exist? I've never seen him come out. I'd hide too if I botched rulings on motions in a similar fashion.
