432. party to case (with attorney)

Larry Ecker is an unethical judge with no grasp of the law. The appellate division's recent reversal of his decision Stanley v. New York State Board of Parole is a testament to this. He often "loses it" in court calling litigants names like "animal", conducts ex parte conversations and "fixes" cases. This guy will be behind bars before long!

Lawrence Ecker is a third rate Judge from a 4th rate law school. He frequently makes errors of facts and law. when he get's proven wrong he will bark at the person that corrected him "Were moving forward!" to attempt to distract from the fact he made and error He makes so many mistakes he even had to have a sign put up no his bench to say "Were moving forward" to help streamline the process sue to the number of people that try and put him on the right track


3061. attorney (private practice)

Judge Ecker's lack of knowledge and incompetence is painful to deal with. Judge Ecker gets extremely hostile when you correct him for critical issues. His catch phase to avoid being corrected is that "We are moving forward, not backwards". It;s astounding this man is on the bench.
