Created by Judge Judy Sheindlin, who headlines the #1 show in syndication 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 is comprised of Judge Patricia DiMango and attorneys Tanya Acker and Larry Bakman.

HOT BENCH is created by Judge Judy Sheindlin and executive produced by Randy Douthit and Maureen FitzPatrick.
