The Judge Judy-fication of Legal Ethics - Part II

Posted by Nancy Rapoport

My tracking of the Judge Judy-fication of legal ethics continues with a Herronor ("Horronor"?) sighting on Ellen today.  Judge Judy argued that she's useful to the people appearing on her show because she has experience.  That statement reminds me of the famous quote, apparently attributed to Jim Horning, although I'd heard that the quote originally came from Mark Twain:  "Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment."  (Others attribute that quote to, among other folks, Rita Mae Brown and to Higdon's Law.)
