Judge Judy Sheindlin
The lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court seeks more than $75,000 in damages Haymond and his firm. In a statement, Judge Judy said she had never filed a lawsuit against anyone before this.
The sheriff denied defaming DA Adam Levy. He also said the timing of the lawsuit was “blatantly political” and implied it was intended to damage his re-election campaign.
Alexandru Hossu, 35, is accused of raping a 12-year-old girl on two occasions on the same day in October, 2010.
She’s known for feisty one-liners in her courtroom. But back in March, it was Judge Judy Sheindlin’s health that took center stage during a show taping.
