'Judge David Young' Delivers Justice with a Snap

New Court Series Spotlights the Humor and Wisdom of Daytime TV's First Openly Gay Judge

Premieres Nationwide on Monday, September 10, 2007

CULVER CITY, Calif., Sept. 7 -- "Judge David Young," the new half-hour court series from Sony Pictures Television, debuts in national syndication this Monday, September 10, 2007 (check local listings or go to http://www.judgedavidyoung.com for stations and times). The star of the show, Judge David Young, is an innovative and compelling and judge who offers a provocative and entertaining blend of honesty, compassion, and humor when resolving issues in his courtroom. Judge Young is also daytime television's first openly gay judge.

In his first week on the bench, Judge Young presides over several fun filled yet hard-hitting cases including a wacky woman going cuckoo in court over her stolen pet parrot, formerly estranged lovers bickering over porn, and a man who returns to his stables to find his horse was sold! Judge Young is known for his fierce intelligence and occasional bursts into show tunes and brings a refreshing perspective to the daytime audience. Confrontational, caring and always entertaining, Judge Young will command respect first and foremost from his litigants and will have zero tolerance for those who attempt to dodge responsibility or waste the court's time.

A one-time law clerk for renowned attorney F. Lee Bailey, and assistant state attorney in Florida under Janet Reno, Judge Young achieved local celebrity status for his creative courtroom approach and his tough but fair sentencing on several prominent cases during his three-term service in the courtrooms of Miami-Dade County.

It was a high-profile case in May 2005 that garnered Judge Young national attention when he sentenced two America West airline pilots to jail for attempting to operate a plane while intoxicated. His commitment to personal responsibility accompanies a strong sense of compassion for litigants in his courtroom. Five days a week, Judge Young will use his position to help the people behind the cases brought before him.

The judge will be joined every day by the vibrant and warm-hearted Bailiff Tawya Young (no relation), whose experience as a lieutenant at Brooklyn Civil-Small Claims Court will serve as an invaluable support to the legal proceedings on the show.

"Judge David Young" is cleared in over 91% of the U.S., including 49 of the top 50 markets for the 2007-2008 season. The show is produced in New York City.
