Lost at sea on te civil side. Left over 200 motions undecided in hus one year on the Civil side, and then blamed the court clerk! But the Criminal side has him back now.

I have tried several Supreme Court jury trials before Judge Massaro. He is a courtly and humorous man by nature and his personality spills over into his role as a trial judge. He has been on the Court of Claims for many years and has a lot of trial experience in the Bronx Supreme Court. I always enjoy his famous lectures on Bronx history for prospective jurors at voir dire. I can't imagine why he has been rated so low thus far.
