Whether you know it or not, you’ve probably seen Marilyn Mosby well before she announced charges in the Freddie Gray case.

This Throwback Thursday delivered a high-profile moment from Baltimore’s State Attorney General past as someone posted a clip of her bringing a case before Judge Judy online.

Marilyn appeared on Judge Judy back in 2000 to sue her neighbor. Then just a college student, Marilyn hauled a man named Ryan Johnson into court for allegedly breaking into her apartment.

She claimed that he set up shop in her place while she was home for a summer. Supposedly, he made himself at home by storing food in her fridge and using her bathtub before he ultimately trashed the place. Marilyn didn’t find out about the intruder until another neighbor told her about it.

Judge Judy sided with Marilyn, awarding her $2,000 for her troubles. We don’t know whether she ever actually got that money, but we’d say she’s pretty much winning at life these days.
