We’ve all heard the stories about the tough judges, the judges who view themselves as hard-asses. Lawyers traveling to other towns always ask, “tell me about the judge” because we want to know if the judge is tough or has developed a reputation for being a “hanging judge”. They have no place in today’s legal system but they exist and because of their impact in the lives of the accused before them, I take them on during this episode. We subject this style of judge to killer cross examination.
