History

Chief Judge Lewis is a character from the Judge Dredd strips in 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine, who was originally a Psi-Judge working for the Psi-Division of Justice Department in Mega-City One. She was so trusted by Dredd that he chose her as part of his team to take the city back from a coup staged by Texas City in 2138 AD, even though she had temporarily lost her psychic powers after being asked to read the mind of a 'screamer' (someone whose mind broadcasts everything it contains at once). Dredd's team (which also included Judge Fintan Joyce, Judge Giant, Judge Rico, Dolman and Judge America Beeny) successfully reversed the coup, and in the process caused the death of Pamelina Oswin, the Chief Judge of Texas City. Judge Hershey, the Chief Judge of Mega-City One, then altered Lewis' files so that all records of her psychic abilities were expunged, and installed her as the new Chief Judge of Texas City. Its inhabitants weren't very happy about this, but they had no say in the matter. Now Chief Judge Lewis uses her secret psychic powers to govern Texas City in a way that benefits both its citizens and those of Mega-City One.
