Linda Kay Lefkowitz, a 71-year-old superior court judge, was reported missing yesterday after she failed to return to her Pacific Palisades home from the Santa Monica Courthouse. Late last night, Lefkowtiz, who has been undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer, was discovered many miles away at a Carson McDonald’s, claiming she’d become lost and still not quite sure where she had landed. So, is it scarier that she’s still on the road or that she might soon be adjudicating some poor sap’s fate? You be the judge! [Press Telegram]
