Your Attention Please:

Judge Carol Berkman has retired.

"I have this reputation for being a mean old bitch," Berkman, 70, said just before lunch, after hearing her last case, a gun possession, and stepping down from the bench.


  1. Good riddance! I had the unfortunate experience to see her on the bench this past summer. She was cruel and clearly took pleasure in causing pain.

  2. She might be a mean old bitch, but she is a lovable one. You had a good one Judge Berkman.
