“Murder in the Court” is a mystery comedy in which Judge Horton, called “Hanging Judge Horton,” is the most feared judge in town.  He can find a man guilty and have him in jail quicker than most judges can bang a gavel.  To make matters worse, the mayor has fired every judge in town except him. And some around town think Judge Horton is a little nuts.  Legend has it Judge Horton once gave a guy “the chair” for excessive parking tickets.  But nuts or not he’s the only judge in town.  And it’s got folks a bit nervous.  Prosecutors, defense attorneys, none of them want to take their chances with the hanging judge.  Not to mention, those who throw themselves at his mercy.
