Hot Bench

Series Description

From the producers of Judge Judy, HOT BENCH adds a new dimension to the court genre, with a panel of three judges hearing court cases, arguing the merits of the case amongst themselves and rendering a verdict. 'Hot Bench' is a term used to describe a court where the judge or judges frequently interrupt lawyers' presentations with questions, often leading to lively exchanges. HOT BENCH's trio of judges are Judge Patricia DiMango, Judge Tanya Acker and Judge Michael Corriero.
