In the next episode of his Phil in the Blanks podcast, Dr. Phil talks to one of the most important and influential judges in recent American history. Judge Rosemarie Aquilina was the first female JAG officer in the U.S. military justice system and the first female commencement speaker at Michigan State University. She presided over the first Zoom jury trial, and is a leading national advocate for victims’ rights, reforming gun safety laws, bail reform, and enacting tough bystander laws. She has presided over some of the biggest trials in the country, including the Larry Nasser sexual assault case and the biggest sexual assault case in the history of the University of Michigan. Bringing a powerful need to be heard and understood to her courtroom, Judge Aquilina is changing the way criminals are brought to justice and the way victims of powerful people are treated.
