The three of them previously worked together for more than two decades on Judge Judy, Judge Sheindlin's legendary CBS series.

With Judy Justice on IMDb TV, the magic continues,"  Judge Sheindlin said in a statement.

Judge Sheindlin also commented on Rose, her granddaughter, joining the show. "I've known Sarah, our law clerk, since she was born. She will be a third-generation female lawyer in our family. She's smart, sassy, and opinionated." Judge Sheindlin then joked, "Who knows where she gets those traits?"
