Poor research
21 November 2014 | by yastepanovSee all my reviews

While (as another reviewer pointed out) California judges are elected, most of them are appointed when there is a vacancy and face only a re-election where they are rarely opposed.

But Kate Walsh's character goes WAY over the line. Putting a fire ax into a tire would have been a criminal act -- the sort of thing that gets a judge up before the review board, probably dismissed if not disbarred as well.

The worst part is Kate Walsh has generally played beautiful, classy women and this character is a tramp.

The show has a judge routinely getting drunk (borderline alcoholic), breaking laws and abusing authority.

If you can suspend disbelief, you can enjoy it.
