What others have said about Hon. Margaret C. Reilly


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY6104
When she was in District Court, she was lazy, never did trials/hearings unless unavoidable or she couldn't pawn off to other judges. She's rude and obnoxious, disrespectful to attorneys and defendants alike. She was an obstructionist, taking positions on offers the DA made. Shut up and take the plea lady. Now that she's in Supreme court, that obnoxious smirk and her nastiness continues. A former Deputy County Attorney, she cannot be neutral, but is a total defense judge. She is a sadist and the last person that should be given power and a robe. She's a political "suck up". It's unbelievable that she's part of the Catholic lawyers, as she's pure evil. She gets her jollies by torturing people and saying no. The only thing worse than her temperament is her scholarship. She THINKS she's smart. She's not.


Comment #: NY5074
She discriminatively judges against non-American immigrants, as well as men. She is very rude and inexperienced in both the Supreme and Matrimonial Courts, and makes lots of wrong decisions. In addition, she does not observe the law, and treats people as criminals, instead with fair judgment. She is not eligible to be an attorney -- let's not even talk about her being a judge!
