What others have said about Hon. Lorna G. Schofield


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 22821
One of the best judges in the SDNY, particularly given her relative inexperience on the bench.. Exceptional temperament and great ability to manage complex cases. Very thoughtful.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 22531
She was completely inclined to one side from the outset of the case. Her rulings on discovery defied imagination. Her opinion was poorly reasoned and read as if it were authored by a first year. The worst federal judge I have ever across in almost two decades of practice.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 22257
Result-oriented, and not in a good way. Not intellectual.
