Even Female Judges Get Harassed!

“I had dinner the other night with a classmate from law school who has spent the last 20 years as a New York jurist. … [S]he told me that she could not believe how rude and abusive some male lawyers were to her. Like talking over her, interrupting her, and trying in many respects to run the courtroom and take it away from her.

… [W]hen I suggested (and here I give a big shout out to my partner Amy Epstein Gluck, the ‘Notorious AEG’) that this was sexist behavior on the part of the lawyers – that they would likely not do that to male judges, her response can be reduced to one word:

‘Duh.'”
