After Judge Becker was served with the lawsuit on June 27, 2011, he punished Tatiana Neroni on the following dates:
- June 30, 2011;
- August 10, 2011;
- August 12, 2011
On August 12, 2011 Judge Becker punished Tatiana Neroni in Supreme Court case Shields v. Carbone, Delaware County Index No. 2009-440, among other things, for the motion to recuse that her husband Frederick J. Neroni made in a DEC administrative proceeding.
The Appellate Division, after being fully advised of what happened, affirmed the sanctions and stated that there is no reason to believe Judge Becker was biased.
On November 18, 2011, 3 days before his own motion to dismiss Tatiana and Frederick J. Neroni's lawsuit was scheduled to be heard in court, Judge Becker punished Frederick J. Neroni for the statement made by Tatiana Neroni: "I will not allow remediation on my property" (Tatiana Neroni, co-owner of the property, was not included into the administrative proceeding as a party), Martens v. Neroni, Delaware County Index No. 2011-432.
No bias, huh?
