Claiming Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Arthur Schack  ”openly demonstrated extreme bias and hostility” to John McDonough of Cozen O’Connor through “offensive ad hominem attacks” during litigation in a personal injury case, the firm has filed a motion for recusal.

Cozen, which is defending Duane Reade in a suit brought by a woman who had been hit by the company’s truck, claims the judge wrote “Wanted” over a headshot of McDonough and posted copies all over his courtroom on the last day of trial, during which Schack declared a mistrial.
