Back in 1993, before she had her show Judge Judy, 60 Minutes profiled Judith Sheindlin, who was widely known in the family court system in NYC. It's really interesting to watch JJ from back in the day, and to know that her behavior today is not just for the sake of television. She was always a character. JJ made a name for herself — as well as many enemies — criticizing the way the disorganized way the city handled child welfare, assigning too many case workers to each kid. She's genuine in her tough love efforts to make a difference in a child's life. Also, we just read that she's a proponent of same-sex marriage. She rules!
