New ‘Divorce Court’ Judge Warns Potential Litigants: ‘Remember What You Admit To’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Although being a divorce court judge on TV is easier than the real thing, there are some difficulties no one can prepare for.

That’s what Judge Lynn Toler – the newest judge on the syndicated series, Divorce Court – has learned in just a few tapings.

Toler is taking over from Judge Mablean Ephraim and says the cases in a real-life divorce court are often more complex than the ones on TV; she says the litigants, in many ways, are more complex personalities.

As she puts it, “I wish that sometimes the litigants would remember what they admitted telling the producers. It seems they’re less forthcoming when they get on camera.”

But some litigants tell Toler more than she wants to hear, like the bride who admitted she had sex with someone else on her wedding night.

Toler admits: “She had to do a lot of convincing to get me to believe that.”
