[Mr. Media®] TV’s Judge Karen warns litigants: “Stay In Your Lane” — or else…

Judge Karen Mills-Francis

Mr. Media Radio

It is a judge’s duty to give the folks who come before him or her good advice and guidance.

Judge Karen Mills-Francis – she’s the one with the blonde hair and the red robe sitting at the center of TV’s syndicated “Judge Karen’s Court” – takes this responsibility seriously, but with a dose of humility, too.


That’s evident from a viewing of the former Miami/Dade County judge’s TV show and her new book, Stay In Your Lane: Judge Karen’s Guide to Living Your Best Life.

Judge Karen’s TV show has endured some challenging times. It was a big hit when launched in 2008, but was cancelled a year later when Sony gave up the court TV business. In a rare accomplishment, she brought her show back from the dead last fall and returned to the top of the ratings. According to the New York Post, the show finished the November 2010 sweeps as New York’s number-one syndicated show in households and in women ages 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.

Not bad for a fellow University of Florida Gator!

A show attorney prepares all the evidence and hands it to me before I get on the bench. A lot of people think we use actors, that we have practices. These are real people with real issues and the resolution is real.”
