  Judges, magistrates, and other judicial workers
Judges and magistrates are expected encounter competition for jobs because of the prestige associated with serving on the bench.
Judges rule on the admissibility of evidence and the methods of conducting testimony, and they may be called on to settle disputes between opposing attorneys.
In such instances, the judge determines guilt in criminal cases and imposes sentences; in civil cases, the judge awards relief—such as compensation for damages—to the parties to the lawsuit, called litigants.

 Judge Dee
The first I ever heard of Judge Dee was from a TV movie I saw when I was living in Hawaii in 1974, Judge Dee and the Monastery Murders.
Van Gulik's stories were completely fictional in filling in the details of this early life of Judge Dee, his cases, official postings, family, etc. They were also deliberately anachronistic in using Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) clothing, customs, and culture in describing events in the T'ang Dynasty, seven hundred years earlier.
The appeal of the Judge Dee stories is not only that they are good detective fiction but that they also draw on all of van Gulik's vast knowledge about Chinese life, history, literature, and jurisprudence.

  Girl tried suicide after judge's grilling - National - theage.com.au
Judge Leo Hart ordered the girl, 16, and her brother, 14, to appear in open court with their father in the dock to explain why they wanted to give evidence televised from outside the courtroom.
Judge Hart was concerned there was a "grave risk" the girl would "break down again" and, in her state, to continue with her evidence would add or repeat the stress that caused the car incident.
Judge Hart said the car incident may have involved a "suicidal attempt" and "demonstrated, I think, a clear desire on her part not to continue giving evidence".

  Judge - LoveToKnow 1911
With the judgment the office of the judge is at an end, but the judgment sets in motion the executive forces of the state, whose duty it is to carry it into execution.
The adjudication of a case was divided between the magistratus and the judex, neither of whom corresponds to the English judge.

  Judge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Judges are considered to be the leaders of one of the branches of government: the judiciary.
Judges of courts of specialized jurisdiction (such as bankruptcy courts or juvenile courts) were sometimes known officially as "referees," but the use of this title is in decline.
Judges who derive their authority from a contractual agreement of the parties to a dispute, rather than a governmental body are called arbitrators, and typically do not receive the honorific forms of address, and do not have the symbolic trappings, of a publicly appointed judge.

 Judge Judy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Petri Hawkins-Byrd, Judge Judy's bailiff, with his absolutely sedate composure, is often a foil to the scalding Judy.
Judge Judy operates according to the principles of the American legal system, and takes on real cases.
Judge Judy acts in a more inquisitorial fashion in a manner similar to U.S. appellate courts and many international courts, as opposed to the non-interventionist manner of judges in U.S. and most Anglo-Saxon trial courts.

 Censure Judge Ginger Berrigan?
On September 6, 2000, Judge Berrigan's rulings against Bernofsky were appealed to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which heard the case on April 3, 2001 and on April 10, 2001 affirmed the judgment of the district court, with Chief Judge Carolyn Dineen King dissenting.
Judge Berrigan should accept the guidance of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and Fifth Circuit Chief Judge Carolyn King, who expressed by word and deed their view that a judge who accepts payment from Tulane University should recuse themselves from cases involving that university.
Judge Berrigan, by abusing her authority, flouting the laws of this country, and engaging in judicial activism for her own personal and political ends has made herself a prime candidate for disciplinary measures.

 Judge orders new review of BU biolab - The Boston Globe
A state judge has ordered further environmental review of a Boston University high-security laboratory where scientists will work with the world's deadliest germs, a decision that marks a potentially important victory for opponents of the controversial facility.
The judge's ruling requires BU to file an updated environmental review and the Secretary of Environmental Affairs to consider it anew, but does not require the case to come back before the judge.
It is, the judge writes, ``no ordinary project, and the potential risks it poses to the environment and public health are extraordinary and, potentially, catastrophic.
