Gerald "Jerry" Sheindlin (born November 19, 1933) is an American author and television personality, he was also a judge on the television show The People's Court from 1999 to 2001. Before that, he served on the New York State Supreme Court.

He is the author of two books, Genetic Fingerprinting: The Law and Science of DNA Evidence and Blood Trail. He is married to Judith Sheindlin, better known as Judge Judy. They married in 1977. It was a second marriage for both Judy and Jerry. They were later divorced in 1990 and remarried in 1991. Between them they have 5 children – Gregory, Jamie, Adam, Jonothan and Nicole – and 11 grandchildren.[1]

During his tenure on The People's Court, his on-bench demeanor was somewhat less gruff and volatile than that of his wife. He displayed more humor and was straightforward, often registering mock indignation whenever litigants referred to him (as they sometimes did) as "Judge Judy's husband."
