Comment #: NY11609
Horrible. Any Officer of the Court that comes flying out of chambers, prior to Court beginning,... and starts screaming at the top of his lungs...needs to put on medication and immediately removed from the bench. Thank God this loon removed himself by retiring.

I recently tried a case to verdict with Judge Asher. He is as good as it gets. Reasonable, thoughtful, decent, fair and honest. I would try all my cases with him as the judge.
