How this will help

AMERICA'S MOST FAMOUS judge has told a former Minister for Justice that Ireland should have cameras in every courtroom.

Speaking to Nora Owen on TV3's Midweek, Judge Judy said closed courtrooms protect two things – bad judges and bad lawyers.

"They also protect bad institutions that serve those courts, such as social services," she continued. "They should be there as the norm. If you have a specific exclusion, then you make it."

Judy Sheindlin passed the New York bar in 1965 and was appointed as a judge to New York's family court by Mayor Ed Koch in 1982.  http://www.tv3.ie/videos.php?video=61270
