  • Ellen Oxman

    A sacrificial lamb to trick the public in to thinking the Commission is doing their job. They are not. Reporting from the trenches, I can safely swear one can be put on Trial in Manhattan Supreme Court, lawyers not in your case, on forged signatures, without knowledge that a Trial is occurring, no stenographer in place. Who is judging the Judges in Manhattan Courts? No one. The Commission needs to "pull out their binders" of women and men who have complained about elected and corrupt judges in our court system. We need more REAL oversight and Judicial Accountability, here, in NY.
