LOS ANGELES (AP) - TV’s “Judge Judy” is hospitalized in Los Angeles for an undisclosed condition. A spokesman for 68-year-old Judy Sheindlin says the judge is “feeling much better” after being taken from her show taping by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday.

Publicist Gary Rosen says Sheindlin will be released from the hospital on Thursday.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott confirmed that a female patient was taken from Sunset Bronson Studios to a local hospital after dispatchers received a 911 call about a medical emergency. She was admitted in serious condition.

Sheindlin presides over small-claims cases on her syndicated show, “Judge Judy.”

Rosen says she will return to taping her show as scheduled on April 12.
