I was very disturbed concerning the Satmar custody case (“Satmar Custody Case Hinges On Value Of Religious Community, June 7). It is unbelievable that Judge Sherri Eisenpress awarded custody of the three children to the father, even though it was suggested that he physically abused and may have sexually abused his own children.
Then when I read further that the Orthodox community raised nearly $125,000 towards Judge Eisenpress’ judicial campaign, I realized this was definitely a conflict of interest. She should have requested to be removed from this case. If she didn’t, then she deserves to be permanently removed as a judge.
