Know Your Judge
New York Judge Reviews contains attorneys' candid comments about the rules, preferences and idiosyncrasies of more than 300 sitting State Supreme Court Justices compiled from interviews with hundreds of litigators.
Learn from other attorneys' experiences before your next appearance. Read their revealing quotes, which include:
• "He's not a settler. His recommendations always lowball plaintiffs."
• "He doesn't talk case law. He's more fact-oriented."
• "Attorneys can evoke even more displeasure should they offer what he considers to be pedestrian or hackneyed legal argument."
• "He expects an incredible amount of decorum in his courtroom during trial."
An average of eight interviewees per State Supreme Court Judge were asked hard questions about judicial personality, intelligence, trial management, settlement skills, knowledge of the law, flexibility, bias, and more. The easy to read--and often entertaining--reviews of judges make this book a one-of-a-kind resource.
Two sample reviews from the book (Judge names omitted):
Temperament: "Cantankerous. Authoritarian. Overreacts."
On the bench: "Bright, but he wastes his talent. Light on evidence."
On trial: "Stickler for rules. Sua sponte objections."
Proclivities: "He's very evenhanded."
Temperament: "He treats attorneys with the utmost respect. Patient. Good sense of humor."
On the bench: "He doesn't start anything until 11:00. You can be there all day on a motion. He may change his mind on oral argument. He's not afraid of being reversed."
On trial: "Speedy. He gave a time limit on summation. His rulings are all over."
Settlements: "This judge evaluates cases a little bit closer than others."
Adjournments: "One or two, then move it."
Proclivities: "He's more pro-plaintiff on the numbers, but even on the liability."
Suggestions: "Be prepared to settle."
