Judge Dredd Wiki
"I've got her cold. I see her first, I shoot her. She sees me first, she hesitates, then I shoot her."
—Kaplan on Cassandra Anderson.

Judge Kaplan is a crooked Judge from the streets of Mega-City One. She was portrayed in the 2012 film Dredd by actress Michele Levin.


Judge Kaplan has worked as a Street Judge for the Mega-City One Justice Department for many years. However she became disillusioned with the city and justice system led her to become a rogue judge, working as a mercenary for hire for crime lords with the funds to purchase her services.

One fine day, druglord Ma-Ma bribed Kaplan and other corrupt judges Lex, Alvarez and Chan to kill the renowned Judge Dredd and rookie judge Cassandra Anderson. However, their cover was blown when Chan attacked and was subsquently killed by Dredd.

Anderson escaped from Kay. Kaplan tells Ma-Ma she will kill Anderson, either by spotting her first or through Anderson's own hesitation. Anderson then encounters Kaplan, and Kaplan tells Anderson to put down her gun, because she's her backup. However, Anderson quickly kills her after reading her mind before promptly proceeding to kill Judge Lex as well.
