Swift Justice with Jackie Glass
Former district court judge Jackie Glass now brings readers her no-nonsense, “get-it-done” legal advice. Judge Glass presided over the district court in Clark County, Nev., for the past eight years, presiding over many high-profile cases, including O.J. Simpson’s 2008 armed robbery trial. As a judge and lawyer, Judge Glass has worked tirelessly to improve the criminal justice system’s handling of the mentally ill as well as the therapeutic supervision and treatment of defendants with serious substance addictions. CBS’ groundbreaking daytime legal-affairs program, “Swift Justice with Jackie Glass,” is the next generation of court TV shows--no robe, no gavel, no nonsense--just Judge Glass interacting directly with litigants, experts, viewers and readers from across the country.
In her companion column to the show, Glass answers real questions about real legal issues, covering everything from divorce settlements to automobile accident liability to property disputes. No one offers practical legal advice like Judge Jackie Glass, and “Swift Justice” will help readers quickly evaluate whether they have a legitimate legal case.
