1I am excited to become the first female judge of the longest-running court show on the air. I am also honored to be the first Judge to represent the Hispanic culture on television...During my service in the Courts, I found the small claims cases to be the most rewarding. Hopefully with my firm grip on the issues, plus a little humor, the viewers at home can learn something.
