AU REVOIR JUDGE KAREN MILLS FRANCIS
Today was her last day in court as she retires with a Sony Development deal firmly in hand for a Television show. Although we hardly knew her, we hear that this could not have happened to a nicer person.
We wish her well.
And a little bird whispered in our ear that it was none other than Television Judge David Young who recommended Judge Mills-Francis for an audition.
Tip of the blogger's hat to BLOGGING BLACK IN MIAMI for the great BIO on the Judge.
College in Maine. Law School in Florida. Former PD. Guardian Ad Litem. Certified Foster Parent. And a Judge with a large dose of common sense and a great sense of humor from what we have seen.
According to DUI and County Court lawyers who have emailed us, she is going to be missed.
Former DUI defense whiz Judge Joe Fernandez takes over her division starting Monday.
