An Afternoon With Judge Judy
April’s Have-a- Rah Rah! social committee event was “ An Afternoon with Judge Judy ( Scheindlin)”, who was interviewed by Katie Couric for a program recorded at the NYC 92nd St. Y
Held at a member’s home in Ajijic centro, 26 LCJC members enjoyed a variety of canapés and other small bites, which were nothing compared to the big biting wit of Judy Scheindlin.
Judge Scheindlin spoke about her experience growing up as a Jewish girl in Brooklyn, NY, graduating law school at a time when women lawyers were a rarity and a bit about her personal life. (She married her second husband twice.)
Judy described her long career in the New York Family Court system, as a lawyer and a family court judge, and then shared her experience as a TV personality – paid a whopping $47 million a year, for the most popular courtroom show on television.
Despite some technical difficulties, the audience reported that they found interview to be engaging, frank, not particularly politically correct, and funny.
