Lousy judge.


Comment #: NY9117
The Judge listened. He was professional and understanding which was helpful to me in going forward with a proceeding - even though it was postponed twice. Thank you. Elizabeth RN

during my visit, I observed Judge Padilla during a proceeding and not only did I learn a great deal but his professionalism was remarkable.

Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:Not Rated
Avoids substantive issues, and tries to create non-existent, technical issues just to show his own "scholarliness". Absurd, ill-thought decisions, no concept of "fairness" or justice.

Rating:Not Rated
CLANG!! Another case gets "shit canned" because this lazy bastard doesn't want to do the work of hearing a triali and making a decision.....


Comment #: NY2398
This judge is unprofessional and has obvious anti-gay bias as well as bias against indigent people. Very troubling behavior. I once read an opinion by a judge who disqualified himself in a case because he admitted to anti-gay beliefs and therefore could not be neutral. I have more respect for such a jurist than for those who harbor anti-gay sentiment but remain on the case.
