The Court wanted the whole world to be warned, so here's their name in the subject line and some excerpts for you. PS: would someone please post the name of the partner in crime, the sewer service process server? Thanks.
In reading this decision, the Court suggests the members of the bar think
of their grandparents, to better understand the Court's ire.
What the Court found was so unsettling that the Court
decided it was necessary to call petitioner's attorneys in for a conference,
to amend the short form Order previously issued, and to write a decision.
The motion is not moot. A more accurate characterization is that the
motion is misleading and evinces Rambo-like lawyering at its worst. In any
event, it is denied and the case is dismissed.
The Court wants to bring the actions of the law firm in question, Cohen,
Hurkin, Ehrenfeld, Pomerantz and Tenenbaum, to light, for the bench and
bar to be aware of. It is the Court's opinion that the firm committed four
separate acts of misconduct, as will be explained below. The firm is
advised that the next instance of improper conduct will result in sanctions.
In addition, the Court has reported the process server in this matter to
the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, as is required.
