A judge has taken an attorney to task for standing "blindly behind" a matrimonial client's recusal motion and her "fifty-three page diatribe" against the court for rejecting her bid to relocate to Texas with her children. New York Supreme Court Justice Lewis J. Lubell hit the lawyer with a $2,500 sanction and ordered the client to pay some $7,200 in attorney fees. In a separate reply affidavit cited by the court, the client compared the proceedings before Lubell to "a gang rape ... by a bunch of lawyers."
