No. Judge Judy is married to Judge Jerry Sheindlin. In fact, she's been married to him twice! They divorced in 1990, remarried in 1991, and have three children together. Before Jerry, Judge Judy was married to Ronald Levy for 12 years and had two children from that marriage.
Back in the day, when Wapner was a student at Hollywood High School during the 1930s, he met a girl also named Judy. A friend introduced her to Wapner, and he asked her out on a date. The girl introduced herself as Judy Turner, but she was remembered as the movie bombshell Lana Turner.
