Watching our justice system in action can be very interesting and exciting. One way that one is able to observe it these days is on television. There are many shows that present two opposing parties arguing their case before a judge or justice who gives them a decision on who is right. Those shows are very entertaining, and today’s FamSite looks at one of the most popular ones on the air.
The site is called JudgeJudy.com, and is the online site for Judge Judith Sheindlin. Here you can learn about the person behind the gavel, how she got her start in New York in 1972 prosecuting juvenile delinquency cases. After retiring in 1996, she segued her career into a syndicated television show. Here you see and hear her dispense her unique brand of justice, see what cases are upcoming on her show, and even fill out a request to have her hear a case that you may be involved in. There is a special section for kids where she gives them some life lessons. There is even an area where you can ask Bailiff Petri Hawkins-Bird questions about his career and part on the show.
This is an interesting site for a most interesting person. Judge Judy’s courtroom stands out from all the other shows of its kind. Enjoy your stop here today, and come back soon.
