Case settled and Plaintiffs got a great result but she knocked down legal fee by 2/3 and money will revert to the Defendants.

I have to agree with the other poster on this forum. I recently had a application in front of Judge Parker and she is biased against plaintiffs. All of the questions were geared towards me and not the defendants and it wasn't my application.

A true embarrassment to the bench. Its one thing to be a former defense atty at Proskauer but it is another to bring your pdefense proclivities to the bench. If you are a plaintiff especially in the employment context you have slim to no shot in front of her. She admonishes Plaintiffs counsel only when it comes to discovery abuses. A judge with her bias should not be sitting on the bench. Just listening to her at the Sedona conference as it pertained to ESI should be a red flag for anyone appearing with an ESI issue before her - unless of course you are a defendant bc then she will use her defense background and bias to screw the Plaintiffs. When I heard her speak I cringed for any Plaintiff appearing before her.

This was my first appearance before Mag. Judge Parker and I most certainly hope it is not my last. She was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and even-tempered. She allowed both parties to be heard fully without losing patience. What a great addition to the bench in SDNY!
