Mullen, a devout Catholic known to quote from the Bible and sometimes described by colleagues as being priest-like. "Isn't that something? Every time I tell that story, I still get goose bumps," Mullen said.
...And this makes him a better person; a better judge??? I think not.

The provision of the NY State Constitution which requires appointed judges to retire at 70 is an anachronism and needs to be amended. In the Court of Appeals (the highest court in the state), Judges Rosenblatt and G.B. Smith were recently forced to retire because they reached that magic number, and Chief Judge Kaye will be reaching that age within a year or two. The law no longer makes sense and deprives us of good, experienced judges for no good reason.

Every criminal wishes to have a fair Judge as the Hon. Michael F. Mullen. If anyone has ever met him, they would tell you that he was a "a fair and impartial Jurist," and he will be missed by the attorneys, prosecutors, fellow colleagues and anyone else he has "touched." When I read comments such as from 'Long Islander" above, I can only assume that he/she had to do the time for a crime, or knew someone expecting a slap on the wrist (which only used to happen in Catholic school).

LOL, your assumption is completely off base, however, amusing.
