Storyline

The Judge ran for a dozen years as a local show on WBNS-TV in Columbus, Ohio until it was picked up and syndicated by CBS. It centered on family court situations and involved children and adolescents in custody, paternity, delinquency and adoption hearings. Originally called Custody Court, it was based on real-life cases and in fact, was planned to show actual hearings. It was entirely scripted, even the decision, and usually had added melodramatic details. Judge Robert Franklin was played by actor Bob Shield who passed away in 1997. By pure coincidence..there is a Judge in Toledo,OH by the name of Robert Franklin. Written by RJ

pretty good show
29 January 2002 | by m_hebnerSee all my reviews

I saw this show a lot when I was 7 years old and thought that it was very entertaining. I remember one episode it was about this boy I think his name was Wally I think he was suppose retarted or something like that, no offence and when he got called to the stand I thought it was funny when he was threating to beat up everyone in the court room including the judge if anybody knows where I can find that episode click on my email address above to let me know. if you like court shows than this is the show for you even though it is fake but very entertaining.
