Berlusconi, 76, blamed "feminist and Communist judges" Tuesday, the Italian news agency ANSA reported. A panel of three female judges set alimony for Berlusconi's estranged wife, Veronica Lario, at 36 million euros ($47 million) as part of the couple's divorce settlement.
The Milan criminal courts released a statement saying it "rejected with firmness any insinuation of bias" against the three judges.
