Can a member of the board of a coop's apartment represent herself pro se

Asked over 1 year ago - Fresh Meadows, NY

coop sued me for videotaping their corruption
I countersued for RICO violations, fraud, etc, all the members of the board as members and personally. Today was supposed to be the trial, the woman who is the sister of a judge in Brooklyn, showed up with the coop's attorney saying she wants to go pro se, everyone in the court seemed too friendly at her as if her brother judge helped her and then the trial scheduling judge allowed her
