Civil Litigation - Private

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!
