Civil Litigation - Private

While this judge is smart and does her homework, she is one of the most condescending judges I have ever been before. Even if you are appointed for life, you should not forget what it is like to be on the other side of the bench. There is simply no reason to be rude, demeaning, impatient and condescending to an attorney who has done nothing to provoke your wrath. When I was before her for the first time, she ripped me to shreds for "not being prepared with cases" during a pre-motion conference on a motion MY ADVERSARY intended to file that had not even been briefed yet much less served upon me. How on Earth could I have come to a pre-motion conference (which is traditionally a conference to pick dates to brief a pending motion) with case law for a motion that I had not yet been served with. I know that women sometimes need to be a little more aggressive to get the same respect as their male counterparts, but there is a definite line between agreesive and a totally irrational b*%^h.

Very professional, fair, and no-nonsense when presiding over trials. Kept things running smoothly for the duration.

Some people rise to the occasion on appointment to court. Others do not - and this judge is among the former. Even better as a judge than she was as a U.S. Attorney - and she was amazing as a U.S. Attorney.

Mauskopf was a Schumer favorite, and as U.S. Attorney shared Schumer's addiction to television cameras and publicity. (The kind of political "look at me" stuff you could never imagine a real professional like Bob Fiske doing.) Too soon to tell - she was only recently confirmed - but Mauskopf will need to work hard to demonstrate an even hand on the bench after her tenure as a prosecutor.

Some people rise to the occasion on appointment to court. Others do not - and this judge is among the latter. Even worse as a judge than she was as a U.S. Attorney - and she was awful as a U.S. Attorney.
