Jones.Show: Jonesing For Good

Dec 5, 2019

Tanya Acker serves as one of three judges on CBS Television Distribution’s syndicated court hit HOT BENCH, created by Judge Judy Sheindlin. The program returned for its sixth season on September 9, 2019. During the 2018-2019 season, HOT BENCH was the #3 first-run program in daytime television, delivering 3.1 million daily viewers. Acker is also host of “The Tanya Acker Show” podcast.

After graduating from Yale, Acker served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Dorothy Wright Nelson on the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

After her clerkship, the Office of the Solicitor General in the U.S. Department of Justice awarded Acker a Bristow Fellowship. While working as a Bristow Fellow, Acker drafted Supreme Court briefs and helped prepare the Solicitor General for oral argument before the High Court. Among the cases on which Acker worked was Clinton v Jones, where she assisted both the Solicitor General and President Clinton’s personal attorneys in preparing for oral argument.

In private practice, Acker’s legal work spanned a broad variety of matters, from civil litigation involving public and private entities, to various constitutional cases, to providing constitutional cases, to the provision of business counseling and advice.

Acker received her B.A. degree at Howard University in 1992, where she graduated summa cum laude and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Her first book, “Make Your Case,” is scheduled for release on August 25, 2020.

HOT BENCH is seen weekdays all across the country. Check your local listings.

JONES.SHOW is a weekly podcast featuring host Randall Kenneth Jones (author, speaker & creative communications consultant) and Susan C. Bennett (the original voice of Siri).
