Q: What is your philosophy about the role of a judge? How are your judicial practices influenced by your pre-bench experience?

A: I view my role as federal judge to “justly” and “speedily” move civil cases along to conclusion. I may be less successful resolving cases “inexpensively,” but this has more to do with the nature of Southern District of New York litigation, which is often costly. In practice, this means that I pursue settlement options early and often; I try to rule on motions quickly and I try not to waste any time at trial.
