Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 33302
Can be fair and logical but is surprisingly disrespectful and/or insulting to counsel, attacks integrity of counsel without provocation. Not what I would expect in a federal court judge and quite disappointing. I have been a lawyer for three decades in everything from small claims court to federal appeals court and I have never witnessed such unprofessional and nasty behavior towards counsel. Apologizing before saying something accusatory and insulting does not make it acceptable.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 32724
Ill suited by experience, demeanor and temperament to act as a facilitator of settlement.

Has extensive experience as a prosecutor of war crimes, maintains a prosecutorial manner, incapable of admitting she doesn't know something so rather than ask questions of attorneys or parties, assumes an omniscient attitude about subjects with which she has zero experience. Lashes out at attorneys who have superior knowledge of their own cases and the type of law involved than she does. Nasty. We have been to well over 200 similar type conferences in a particular field of law mostly in the Southern Dist of NY but in 8 other states as well. She is in the wrong job. Worst experience ever. She is to be avoided by all costs by civil plaintiffs or defendants. No bias evident - just the arrogance of the ignorant on full theatrical display. Ought get another job.
