Back in 2013, this Manhattan judge had a contentious ruling about what can be presented at a trial: Judge says abortion raises questions about divorcee’s credibility – NY Daily News
A judge who allowed a woman’s abortion to be used against her as evidence in a nasty custody battle says she only did so because it raised questions about the divorcee’s credibility.
The ruling hinged on ‘credibility’ and a lot of people thought the ruling was nuts. Well, it turns out that this judge really IS ‘nuts’! New York Supreme Court judge scammed out of $1m by email | Daily Mail Online reports via the NY Daily News:
Justice Lori Sattler, 51, was duped by an email she believed had come from her real estate lawyer, but in actuality it came from a scammer.
Even low IQ people know that you never send money to anyone who emails you out of the blue. If a lawyer wants money, they send proper documentation—DUH. I made money doing real estate deals in NYC in the past and all of that is done via not even regular mail, you use a person who has legal standing and is covered by insurance if god forbid, the documents are lost or tampered with!
The proper delivery of documentation and checks have to be registered checks or other secure/insured forms for example, if one gets a check and then after signing documents, the check bounces…duh. No way! Everything dealing with real estate in New York is covered by a mountain of rules designed to prevent fraud! Even with that, at two closings, I and my lawyers had to turn very nasty and threaten lawsuits due to the other party screwing up everything!
Sattler, a judge in the First District of the State Supreme Court in Manhattan, went to police Friday saying she received the email June 7 from someone that she thought was her lawyer. The imposter told her to send the money to an account in Arizona.
It is obvious to me that this female ‘judge’ is either suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease or she is terminally stupid. This is so beyond ridiculous, it certainly renders her incapable of being a judge since she has poor judgement. Ahem. Very poor judgement. Not to mention, no understanding about the law.
She followed the instructions and wired $1,057,500 to the account, the money was then transferred to a Commerce Bank of China in Hong Kong, sources told The New York Daily News.
She has been accused of being dumb in the past: Justice Lori S. Sattler | Divorce: New York
The father claimed that his daughter, who turned 18 in April, 2012, was emancipated under this clause as of November, 2012.
On an application by the mother to compel the father to continue paying child support, the father submitted his daughter’s affidavit. According to the daughter, in October, 2012 the mother had told her that she was going to move to Philadelphia to live with her boyfriend, which the mother did in November, 2012. The father then found an apartment for his daughter, sending her pictures of it while away at school at Emory College in Atlanta. The daughter signed a lease in November, 2012 and moved in over Christmas break from school after she and her father purchased furniture and household supplies.
The father gave the ‘child support’ directly to the 18 year old daughter. The mother wanted it not for the child but for HERSELF.
The daughter went on to state that she did not want to live in Philadelphia, that she intended to return to her new apartment as her permanent residence when not in college and that she will use that address for her driver’s license and on tax returns. She acknowledged that she did intend to see her mother and father often when home from school.
The mother claimed that without consulting her, the father had rented the apartment purposefully to circumvent his child support obligation. She contended that this was not contemplated by the stipulation and that the daughter could not be found to reside away from the mother on a full-time basis while a full-time student at Emory.
Funny, that…I left for college at age 16, got full adult status by 17 and lived and worked on my own, indeed, I did lie about my real age and claimed I was 21 so I could get work. When I was still in school, to save money, I moved into a junk yard in Berkeley on the Bay and lived in my 55 Chevy truck which had a sink, a stove, a bed, a second story on the roof and a big easy chair…a cool truck which I sold to pay for my baby girl when I was still in school.
The mother, in this case, is a mooch who wants money from the father for herself.
The mother claimed that for financial reasons, she gave up her New York apartment, moved first to her boyfriend’s house in Philadelphia and then to her mother’s house. The mother stated that she had now sublet a studio apartment in New York and would move to a two-bedroom apartment upon reinstatement of child support payments.
When I divorced, it was my problem, I gave my ex the house and lived in a tent for ten years while building a new house, mostly by myself and my youngest child who was a nice help. The thing is, I didn’t mooch off of the ex. Even when having custody, I didn’t do this.
Factual support most often includes, as it does here, input from the child him or herself, a fact that this court finds problematic. Eighteen and nineteen year olds are asked to affirm that they have established a new and permanent residence and to assert a claim of independence and stability that the court views as unlikely. More often, a child’s participation may reflect the child’s concern that educational bills may not otherwise be paid or, as here, the attractiveness of proffered expense-free and relatively unsupervised independence.
That statement about a 18-19 year old not being independent pisses me off greatly. I was at 17 and I am not alone in this, I have a collection of friends who also left home and supported themselves the same way I did at the identical age!
The mother, far from contributing to the daughter’s well being, is actually taking money away from her child and channeling it to HERSELF. This is ridiculous. The mother, not the child, is the moocher here.
I think this judge is nuts. Now we know she is nuts! She is stupid. I think she should be removed from the bench but I no longer live in NYC and can do this, I did this in the past and put in Judge Becker which upset the DNC machine greatly in Brooklyn way back in 1982.
Judges are politicians and this judge is a prime example of why NYC messes up all the time.
