  • In Memoriam

It is with profound sadness that we inform you that Hon. Judy Chirlin (Judge Judy)
suddenly and peacefully passed away on November 11th, 2022. Judge Judy was one of a kind and made a lasting impression on everyone she met.
She loved the law and being a judge, and considered her post-judicial career with Judicate West as a labor of love.

For decades,
she was deeply committed to supporting our communities in many ways - from mentoring high school students in conflict resolution to teaching
court reform to Judges from all over the world. She also served on dozens of boards and committees, was the Executive Director for the Western Justice Center,
and Co-Founder and President of the Judicate West Foundation. Her passion for giving back was endless.

Judge Judy leaves a legacy for women
lawyers and judges in the California judicial system, and a warm place in the hearts of all who knew her. We will miss her more than words can express.

There will be a memorial service honoring Judge Chirlin on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. The location is below:
