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's trio of judges are Judge Patricia DiMango, Judge Tanya Acker and Judge Michael Corriero.
