A California judge under fire for filming a TV show audition without the knowledge of litigants in her courtroom has denied that she violated judicial canons. San Diego County Superior Court Judge DeAnn Salcido also responded to charges that she failed to promote public confidence in the integrity of the judiciary. She denied that dozens of remarks she made on-camera and off were improper, saying she used comedy in her courtroom to seize on "teachable moments" with defendants and people in the gallery.
