Judge Patricia DiMango, the administrative justice for the Brooklyn Supreme Court, is quitting her distinguished position to star in a new show created by the inimitable Judge Judy. It makes sense: A Times profile of DiMango from 2011 was titled, “In Judge’s Brooklyn Courtroom, Made-for-TV Drama Without the Cameras,” and DiMango was described as “tanned, toned and blond at 50-something … [with] cleavage underneath a robe that casually falls off her shoulders; she drives an aqua Porsche.” America isn’t ready.
