Federal Judge Kimba Wood, who holds a Masters from the London School of Economics, a JD from Harvard and once trained as a Playboy Bunny, is our Judge of the Month**. A lawyer requested a recess in the middle of his trial for the birth of his grandchild – but only if it was a son (because a girl would be a disappointment). Her response is just lovely.

** If we had a real contest, Judge Vaughn Walker would win Judge of the Year for his Prop 8 ruling.

    From dim & distant memory, it was just little more than fitting into the costume (a pretty standard one piece swimsuit looking job), and putting on the ‘ears’, bending properly (for the ever present sunken ‘grottoes’ & low tables), and smiling a lot. Not really much too it. There was plenty of highly overwrought reaction to the entire deal when they first came out, but it all seems just pretty much almost quaint by now. Plenty of college gals & yes moms working through school & picking up part-time jobs filled the staffing. Would that they could & would train the current crop of waitpeople as well we imagine. But as they say, another story entirely. JMP

    What kind of training is there to be a playboy bunny?

      I saw a special on this one time. At the clubs, the bunnies had a “signature way” of bending down / picking up drinks, like they had to bend at the knees and move a shoulder back or something.

    Ah, Judge Wood!!! Love her response. Makes you wonder what coulda been had she not been forced to withdraw as Clinton’s AG for having a nanny she did not pay social security taxes for.
