The Supervising Justice at New York County Supreme Civil Court is demanding that all parties be copied on a complaint about the Judge in the part my case is in. This seems at odds with normal procedure. And would make complaining about the judge in such an open forum more reasons that Judge would act vindictively against me. Is this the courts method of dealing with complaints?

I don't know if there is a written procedure or not. What the Supervising Judge says makes sense because I assume you are raising specifics about the case and therefore failing to copy everyone else would be an improper ex-parte communication with the Court.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been doing criminal defense work for over 16 years. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012 and 2013. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. Martindale-Hubbell has given me its highest rating - AV Preeminent - in the areas of Criminal Law, Personal Injury, and Litigation. According to Martindale-Hubbell”AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." Fewer than 8% of attorneys achieve an AV Preeminent rating. I also have the highest ranking – “superb” – on Avvo.
