Closed courtrooms only protect bad judges and lawyers, says Judge Judy

AMERICA’S MOST FAMOUS judge has told a former Minister for Justice that Ireland should have cameras in every courtroom.

Speaking to Nora Owen on TV3′s Midweek, Judge Judy said closed courtrooms protect two things – bad judges and bad lawyers.

“They also protect bad institutions that serve those courts, such as social services,” she continued. “They should be there as the norm. If you have a specific exclusion, then you make it.”

Judy Sheindlin passed the New York bar in 1965 and was appointed as a judge to New York’s family court by Mayor Ed Koch in 1982.

  1. the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform paper on due process says that those states that have open courts were skeptical at first but not disappointed in the results. They should be open with the exception of clear and convincing evidence that only certain testimonies or documents be held confidential to protect minors. See paper called SOLUTIONS; Due Process.


  2. Who can you notify if you’ve been a direct victim of this Court Room corruption. It is definitely true. Look up Cash for Kids. Scranton Pa. Judge Recieved 28 yrs.

  3. All courts in all countries should have cameras recording proceedings. I am fighting to stop the judicial doctoring of court transcripts in Australia and have been for four years. My young daughter and I were attacked so viciously we were nearly killed, due to a court recording of my hearing being doctored. To see more on what the judiciary get up to, in Australia and internationally, go to the Facebook page ‘Australians against Courts Doctoring Court Recordings’.
