Controversial judge Noach Dear is gunning for more power

Controversial Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Noach Dear is eager to wield more power — and has applied for a job running the appeals court that covers the city’s outer boroughs and surrounding suburbs, The Post has learned.

The former pol was interviewed last week in a bid to become presiding justice of the Appellate Division’s Second Department in Brooklyn, according to sources familiar with the application process.

A screening committee also met with several other applicants for the post, then sent a secret list of recommendations to Gov. Cuomo, the sources said.

The Post has revealed that Dear, a former Civil Court judge who was elected to the state Supreme Court in 2015, recently got himself transferred back to Civil Court two days a week to handle consumer-debt cases — mainly involving members of his Orthodox Jewish community.

Cuomo’ s office didn’t return a request for comment. A woman who answered the phone at Dear’s house said he wasn’t there and hung up.
