One woman is being called the meanest judge in America. Courtroom video shows there’s nothing nice about the way Judge Merrilee Ehrlich yelled at a woman with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who was accused of scratching her daughter during a domestic dispute. As the Broward County Florida judge looks over the woman's case, the defendant starts coughing. The sick woman’s defense lawyer was outraged. Three days after facing Judge Ehrlich, the woman, Sandra Faye Twiggs, died of her condition.
