Judge Judy Interupted By Earthquake - Taping Haulted After 5.4 Magnitude Quake Struck Southern California On Tuesday
Los Angeles, California (The Weekly Vice) -- While some might say Judge Judy knows how to shake up a courtroom, even her fiery temper couldn't quite compete with the 5.4 magnitude earthquake that struck Los Angeles on Tuesday - which interrupted a taping of the syndicated program.
The show's taping was temporarily postponed when the building suddenly began to shake, prompting audience members to vacate the "courtroom" as the "plaintiff" looked around in disbelief.
The quake, which was considered 'moderate' in magnitude, is believed to have centered near Chino Hills, California with as many as 27 aftershocks detected. Buildings rumbled from Los Angeles to San Diego, with tremors being felt as far away as Las Vegas according to some reports.
We kinda like the female litigant (appears to be the plaintiff) who wasn't about to let anyone pull her away from her case.
We're told that taping resumed later that afternoon.
