It looks like her. It sounds like her.
Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby made an appearance as a 20-year-old college student on Judge Judy during the show’s fifth season.
In an episode reportedly filmed in 2000, Mosby, then known as Marilyn James, claimed a business owner trashed her apartment while she was away for spring break.
The man, who owned a cigar shop below Mosby’s apartment, allegedly broke her door, left cigarette burn stains and a “disgusting” mess in her bathtub.
Throughout the episode, Mosby pleads her case rather convincingly. Judge Judy eventually rules in her favor to the tune of $1731.90 to pay the bills incurred cleaning her apartment.
Judy tells Mosby she would have awarded her punitive damages as well, but Mosby’s claim was only for bills. She was a student at Tuskegee University at the time.
“I feel like there’s finally some justice served,” Mosby tells the camera after the verdict. “I tried to speak to the DA. I spoke to police officers,” she says. “Judge Judy … she finally gave me justice.”‘
A spokesperson for Mosby hasn’t commented on the video’s authenticity, but Mosby did favorite a tweet referencing the clip earlier this month:
