Judge Alex Ferrer, in a typical episode of the show.

Judge Alex is an American arbitration-based reality court show, presided over by retired police officer, lawyer, and Florida Judge Alex Ferrer. The series premiered September 12, 2005, and airs on syndication.[1]

It was announced on January 17, 2014, that Judge Alex had been canceled.[2] New episodes will continue to air until August 2014.[3]

Judge Alex Ferrer[edit]

While Ferrer handled cases that ranged from armed robberies to kidnappings and first-degree murders as a Florida circuit court judge, his cases on Judge Alex have been described as far tamer, entertaining, and by the arbiter himself as often "bizarre." Every three weeks, he tapes 10 cases a day over three days previously in Houston where the show was based (once Texas Justice was cancelled, its courtroom set and theme song was used for Judge Alex); Ferrer then flies back home to Miami, where he lives with his wife and two children.

Personable and sensible with a sense of humor, Ferrer isn't overly harsh or given to mouthing off like some of his judicial counterparts, though he does keep a firm control over his courtroom and doesn't allow misconduct or disrespect. Ferrer's rulings are often prefaced by his explanation of the law at hand to his audience.[4]
