To Mr. Steven Finell. Maybe u dont kno what ur talkin about. Can u explain the basis of logic that exonerates a judge from criminal prosecution of taking bribes because he was in his chambers wearing a robe as opposed to meeting in a restaurant and taking that same bribe? Too many questionable acts by judges have been overlooked during her reign. What does she bring to the (other side of the) table that she couldnt or wouldnt as chief judge?

PS @ellen_oxman: There is no "Manhattan Supreme Court." You probably mean the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, which sits in Manhattan. It is a trial court. Chief Judge Kaye was never a judge of that court or of any trial court. As I said, you don't know what you are talking about.

@ellen_oxman: You do not know what you are talking about. Many judges return to private practice when they resign from the Bench. That is not a sign of corruption. Any law firm would welcome a former Judge of the Court of Appeals, especially a Chief Judge, and more especially a Chief Judge with Judge Kaye's outstanding record of accomplishment. If you have any evidence or basis to support your accusation that Chief Judge Kaye "threw cases" (whatever that means)--and I seriously doubt that you do--tell us what it is. And, while you are at it, present it to an appropriate disciplinary body. Otherwise, we will know that you are simply a coward who enjoys slinging mud at widely respected public figures.

Formatting error: Jenny Rivera is (unintentionally) in Kathy Chin's paragraph. She deserves a paragraph of her own, with her name in boldface type, like everyone else.

The fact that Judge Kaye is at Skadden....says it all. She is cashing in on all of the years she threw cases. NOWHERE is more corrupt than Manhattan Supreme Court. Nowhere.
