BALTIMORE, May 29 (UPI) -- Before Marilyn Mosby was a prosecutor in the Freddie Gray case, she made her first public court appearance on Judge Judy.

As a college student, Mosby visited the reality court television show to resolve a dispute with a neighbor.

According to The Baltimore Sun, the neighbor "trashed her apartment while she was away on summer break, knocking down the door, leaving cigarette burns on the walls, a "disgusting" mess in the bathtub."

Judge Judy ruled in Mosby's favor, awarding the plaintiff the $1731.90 she asked for to cover the damages.

"I feel like there's finally some justice served," the lawyer said after receiving the verdict. "I tried to speak to the DA. I spoke to police officers, Judge Judy ... she finally gave me justice."

Now 15 years after the episode aired, Mosby is a state attorney for the city of Baltimore and has been involved in the nationally covered case involving Freddie Gray, who suffered from a severe spinal cord injury in police custody.

Earlier this month she announced that the six police officers involved were being charged with Gray's death.
