I have only had settlement conferences with Judge Caracappa, but I have never seen anyone handle them as well as she does. As far as I've seen, she always treats everyone with respect, although she will not hold back when she sees a problem with a case. Then again, that is her job.

Frequently gives female attorneys a hard time. Blows hot and cold. Lacks a judicial temperament.

Whether or not this judge acts with proper decorum in the courtroom, she FAILS to treat others with respect in her out-of-court dealings.

Judge Caracappa is nice enough and treats counsel and parties with respect, but does not have a good basis for valuing a personal injury case

Judge Caracappa tends to spend a lot of time discussing her purpose in settlement discussions without spending any time on actually pushing settlement of the case.

How fair is she in personal injury settlement conferences? Does there appear to be some bias in favor of plaintiffs or defendants
