Sometimes, in life, you just can't help but laugh.

And that was certainly the case for "Hot Bench" Star Judge Patricia DiMango during one case!

As she tells it, "We had a fella come in — his case was very weak, and all he kept saying was, 'But I love Judge DiMango.'"

Well, she couldn't help but be charmed!

"I said, 'I don't know if that's going to help you win or not.' And he goes," — and she says it in her classic New York City accent — "'Your voice, it's like butter.'"

But how she thinks of her voice? "I hear myself as an Italian Barbra Streisand."

LOL. We don't disagree!

Even so, she was right -- her admirer's appreciation for her amazing accent was not enough to win him his case. (Flattery can only get you so far, it seems!)

But! There was a silver lining for him.

"In the end, when they interviewed him at the end of the show, they said, 'How did you feel losing?' He said, 'I've got something more valuable than that.' And he holds up his dismissal with my signature on it! 'I have Judge DiMango's signature.'"

Your honor, we would DEFINITELY be giggling, too!
