I have never practiced before Judge Donnelly at the District Court level, but have appeared before her in the Second Circuit where she was sitting by designation. Let's put it this way: Not only is she dishonest, shrill, and overly aggressive in her approach, it is very clear that she is a *District* Court Judge eager to insulate her *District* Court colleagues from any scrutiny of their decisions. That one has the temerity to file an appeal, in her view, is proof enough that the appeal should be summarily disregarded. God forbid you are representing a civil defendant seeking an appeal. She assumes your clients are *guilty* (not merely liable) from the outset and then proceeds to berate you and your client. A walking absurdity with an attitude to match.
