It appears that major firms in civil litigation need fear no sanction, or certainly nothing that is not readily absorbed as a cost of doing business, for flouting compliance with discovery. She will perhaps lecture the non-compliant party but even where delay is the transparent goal of improper and unethical discovery shenanigans, she will let them slide and thereby reward the non-compliance.

Excellent judge. Smart. Practical. Fair. Perfect judicial demeanor. Should be promoted to district judge.

I have appeared before her a number of times in civil matters. While she may at first appear aloof and imperious, she has turned out to be engaged, reasonable and fair. Her handling of our settlement conference was not as thorough as some, but she is far more skilled than certain of her colleagues. Treat the Court with respect and it will be returned.

Was very efficient and fair in her handling of discovery in my IP case. Kept everyone to their deadlines, and issued her orders quickly.

My adversary and I consented to have Judge Mann handle our case in its entirety in the hopes that doing so would speed up its resolution. All in all, I think it was a good decision since all aspects of the case (discovery, settlement conference, and eventually settlement) were expedited.

All in all, I thought she was very competent and even-tempered. I liked her.

Intemperate, impatient, uncaring and most disagreeably arrogant. All the wrong qualities for a judge. Plain awful.

Recently finished my first case assigned to her. Overall I liked her. I thought she was a little too indulgent with plaintiff's counsel who engaged in a lot of nonsense, but then again I was once 20 minutes late to a conference and she was good about it. Her settlement conference was also really productive and helped bring the case to a final resolution.

Pompous. Self-righteous. Arrogant. Disrespects civil litigation, treats personal injury litigants poorly in general. Not gifted in securing settlement. Off-putting. A political hack.

Superlatively sensible. Just had a wage case before the judge where neither party really wanted to be in court and both were close to agreement in terms of numbers very early on. The judge could see this and turned our initial conference into a settlement conference. After hearing from and talking with each of us, she proposed a practical position that was acceptable to both sides. One less headache for everyone involved; her extra effort in getting the case quickly resolved was much appreciated.

I have had many cases before Judge Mann over the past several years. I have always felt that she has done a great job in assisting cases to settle. Lately, I believe she has gotten even better. Perhaps it is a result of an improved demeanor or increased interest level, but whatever it is, it shows.

I am very glad that I consented to have the case heard by her. My adversary ended up essentially defaulting, and, unlike some other judges in the EDNY who might have taken a year or so to rule, Judge Mann issued her opinion within a matter of weeks.

Just settled a case in front of Judge Mann. Thought she (and her clerk) were really terrific. Very fair, thoughtful, and understanding.

Not at all mindful of what it's like to actually practice law for a living. VERY inflexible re: scheduling even when there is consent from Government.

This judge consistently brings a very antagonistic attitude to the bench. If she happens to take arbitrary offense, she will retaliate against that attorney, and his client. She is not fit for the bench.

She made several incorrect decisions and negative and inappropriate comments about the attorneys and litigants in the one case I had before her that had ramifications for the life of the case.

Very smart, but does not know how to treat lawyers. She doesn't seem to want to be there.
