You’d be hard-pressed to find a bigger Judge Judy fan than Jim Harbaugh. When he was coach of the San Francisco 49ers, he made an appearance on her show with his dad as a guest in the audience. And since then, he’s given her several shoutouts on Twitter, talked about how she inspires him to be a better coach at the NFL Combine and spearheaded the movement to get her on the Supreme Court.
“I love Judge Judy,” Harbaugh told FOX Sports. “We have some great Supreme Court members, [it’s a] tremendous Supreme Court currently that we have, but I’d love to see Judge Judy on the Supreme Court. I just love everything about her.”
That quote was from last year, and nothing has changed in the last 10 months – except the size of Judge Judy’s bank account. Oh, and the fact that now, there is actually an opening on the Supreme Court, following the unexpected passing of Antonin Scalia last month. And you better believe Harbaugh is doing all he can to put Judge Judy on the bench, calling on President Obama to nominate her for the highest court in the land.
I urge President Obama to nominate to the Supreme Court the wise and competent, Judge Extraordinaire Judith Sheindlin.

We wonder what Mitch McConnell thinks? Judge Judy is well aware of Harbaugh’s love for her, too. Even though he’s not one of the four accounts she follows on Twitter (we need to talk about Hot Bench, Judy), she might have to start soon – especially if this SCOTUS gig happens.
