Judge backman was one of the first judges on the courtroom reality TV show, hot bench. He appeared on the show for its first two seasons before announcing that he would be leaving in order to focus on his law practice. He was replaced by Michael corriero. Corriero has been a magistrate for over a decade, and is a former New York state court judge.
He was born in Detroit, Michigan and belongs to the white ethnicity. He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of California Los Angeles and a Juris Doctorate from Southwestern University School of Law. He is admitted to the California and New York State Bars as well as the United States District Court for the Southern and Eastern Districts of California, the Southern District of New York, and the Western District of Washington.
Backman is married to a Hamilton County Common Pleas judge and has one daughter. She lobbied for the position to move up to circuit court, but was passed over by Broward’s Judicial Nominating Commission (JNC), who recommended other candidates. She did not comment, but several well-placed sources tell JAAblog she is angry about the rejection.
i think that Judge bakman was a good addition to the show but was not needed for the long run of the show. he was very energetic and asked the parties rapid fire questions. however, he was not very objective and sometimes was biased. i believe that Judge Dimango is the least biased but she too has her moments.
