Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:9.0
Comments:
Civilized, temperate, fair, intelligent. The kind of judge the SDNY used to be justly (but alas perhaps no longer is) renowned for.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: 8546
Rating:5.2
Comments:
She interjects herself into the trial in a way which makes her bias in favor of the civil plaintiff known and sheinterferes with the attorney's ability to try the case

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 5436
Rating:6.8
Comments:
Agree with first poster, in that she tends to prejudge a case. My case involved well-heeled New Yorkers. Cedarbaum chose sides early and, in a bench trial, tailored her findings and conclusions to suit her favored side. Cannot say she was fair or open-minded in approach.

Civil Litigation - Private

Rating:4.5
Comments:
Seems to prejudge and ignore what she doesn't understand. Inserts herself in the examination of trial witnesses and questions experts before gaining an understanding of the topic. Does not seem to do much legal research or understand basic science.
