622. party to case (pro se)

I find Judge Sabrina B. kraus - to be highly unethical, rude and hostile towards pro-se litigants (people with no money). I found it extremely curious that New York Times did not endorse her due to her shady tactics - RIGHT ON (very low morals)!! I also found it interesting (karma) that she felt she was at a disadvantage in the race for 2011 Civil Court due to low funding - that is laughable - because I witnessed her, not only discriminating against me because I was poor and black - I witnessed her being extremely brutal to other tenants who had low funds at well. What goes around - comes around. New york - please contain or remove her from housing Court.

Politically driven, not serve justice ...
