This judge is completely incapable of making the appropriate decisions in family court. One should ask for a different judge if they are appointed Spero Pines. He is arrogant and is not a fair leading judge. He needs to retire or get out of the position he is in due to the fact that he is miserable and he takes it out on the people in the court room. He deserves no respect or the power to make life changing decisions.

Judge Pines is arrogant, ill tempered, biased, and undermines the public confidence in the integrity, fair-mindedness and impartiality of the judiciary. His disrespect and demeaning for Pro Se Litigants is unparalleled. He works to serve mother's rights regardless of circumstance while holding fathers to a higher standard. His admonition in 2008 for the same conduct should tell you all you need to know about him. He is not honorable and needs to be removed. He continually violates Sections 100.1, 100.2(A), 100.3(B)(1), 100.3(B)(3), 100.3(B)(4) and 1003.(B)(6) of the Rules Governing Judicial Conduct, and remains unchecked. How can a sitting judge who has already been admonished for misconduct continue to give free passes to mothers who violate court orders while continuing to deny father their rights and dismissing clear and credible evidence? I swear he makes it up as he goes.

Judge is gender bias. Uses hearsay in a decision that was made up and disregards proven facts. Denies witnesses to testify for no reason! Extremely rude to witnesses and lawyers of both parties. Needs to be removed. Does not care for the best intrest of children. He must go! His decisions for children are putting them in danger, due to his arrogance and horrific temperament.

Not sure if we're talking about the same judge, but the HONORABLE Spero Pines know is an amazing, caring judge who knows his job inside out and gives people justice where it's deserved! It's a courthouse, do you expect to be pampered there?

Judge Pines has absolutely no respect for men fighting to be part of their children's lives. I have been in front of him many times and he continues to be bias against me for no reason. He deliberately kept me from seeing my children for almost a year for no reason whatsoever. He then told me I haven't spent any time with them (but he didn't let me). I am an Engineer with security clearance and he threatens to put me in jail because I am behind on orthodontics payments for invisalign braces that my ex wife got for one of my children without even asking if I could afford invisalign braces. Having jail time on my record would ruin my career as it requires security clearance and he doesn't seem to care. He is rude and even told my ex that she has beautiful children, deliberately ignoring the fact that they are also my children. I have physical evidence that he is friends with my ex wife's father, they've been friends for over 30 years, yet when I request a new judge, it's denied and he refuses to recuse himself. If there were a way to give negative star ratings I would give him negative 5 because he doesn't belong on the bench, he belongs behind bars.

Spero Pines need to be removed from court. He is a terrible Judge that is gender prejudice. i representented myself in court and when i walked into the court room he started attacking me. He yelled at me where are my witnesses, i didn't file a paper to call whitnesses. Spero pines read from a document my testimony, which i did not fi!e. Spero Pines presented a false document in. court. Spero pines cut me off and did not want to hear a word I have to say. Spero pine is not able to do his job and familys are hurting. i contacted albany and they waited until after the election to respond and said not enough evidence. i requested all documents and recording, the document that Judge spero pines had is missing but the recording he is clearly reading it. Albany is just as corrupt and it is time we clean up the dirty system.
