Regarding the quality of reporting by the New York Post:
“Overall we rate the New York Post on the far end of Right-Center Biased due to story selection that typically favors the Right and Mixed (borderline questionable) for factual reporting based on several failed fact checks.”

Update August 21, 2021
The New York Post article mentioned that Judge McGinty was to be deposed yesterday in the related case of Alana Orr. Frances Amato was dismissed from that case. Frances Amato may be hoping to get her own deposition with Judge McGinty, but I don’t think that is going to happen. I think Frances Amato’s new case, referenced above, will ultimately be dismissed as was her earlier attempt to sue Judge McGinty.
Below are the restrictions the Court put on the deposition of Judge McGinty. I suspect Orr and Amato may have trouble keeping their mouths/keyboards shut about the matter. We will see.
For all of her experience with federal cases, Frances Amato is talking big and as if she doesn’t know how things work in federal court. She has posted the following 2 messages to her FaceBook page.
Criminal charges are not “pressed” by civilians. Frances might whine all she wants about alleged criminal activity, but it’s up to law enforcement to “press criminal charges”.
Judge McGinty is no where near being served in Frances’ suit referenced above.
I decided copying Exhibits 3, 4 & 5 for this article was appropriate and they are listed below!
Frances Amato is getting a little threatening, as have so many others (i.e., Kent Hovind), by invoking God and suggesting God will “get McGinty”!
Update August 22, 2021
For reference and background, here is a link to a New York Appeals Court case on the custody matter; from 2018.

So, seems to me, Frances filed her own new lawsuit in hopes she could get her own deposition out of Judge McGinty. I don’t think that is going to work for Frances. We will see.
The New York Attorney General appears to think the New York Post article is symptomatic that Alana Orr, et al, have already violated the Court’s order protecting the deposition of Judge McGinty.
