USA:The People's Court – Judge promotes вЂNothing Compares to Family’


SKECHERS USA, a global leader in the lifestyle footwear industry, announced that Judge Marilyn Milian of the popular television courtroom reality series, The People’s Court, will be the next celebrity to join its charity-related “Nothing Compares to Family” advertising campaign.

Judge Milian will appear in the SKECHERS campaign with her husband, John, and their daughters Cristi, 13; Alex, 12; and Sofi, 8. Milian partnered with SKECHERS to raise awareness for Camp Fiesta, Inc.—a summer camp for cancer patients of the Children’s Cancer Caring Center in Florida.

“Judge Milian will be a fantastic addition to the SKECHERS вЂNothing Compares to Family’ campaign,” began Michael Greenberg, president of SKECHERS. “As a family brand, this campaign is essential to SKECHERS and allows us to work with a variety of celebrities while supporting, and more importantly promoting, a wide range of deserving charities.”

“I love that SKECHERS has built this campaign around the importance of family,” said Milian. “We talk often about the value of charity in our house, so I love that through SKECHERS our family can raise awareness together for Camp Fiesta, an organization near and dear to my heart.”

Milian, a graduate of Georgetown Law, began her career as an Assistant State Attorney for the Dade County State Attorney's Office. With a decade of experience, she was appointed to become a Miami County Court Judge in the Domestic Violence Court, Criminal and Civil divisions. In 1999, Florida Governor Jeb Bush appointed Milian as a Miami Circuit Court Judge, where she served in the Criminal Division. Leveraging all of her experience as both attorney and jurist, Milian became the first Latina judge of The People’s Court in 2001. She is currently in her 10th season on the popular show.

The SKECHERS “Nothing Compares to Family” campaign began in 2008, and it has starred some of today's popular celebrity families while benefiting children's charities with ads breaking in weekly magazines and other fashion and lifestyle glossies. Judge Milian joins a roster of celebrities that has included Tori Spelling, Brandy, Jack Coleman, Trista and Ryan Sutter, Holly Robinson Peete, Niki Taylor, Cesar Milan and most recently Brooke Burke.
