|~ Judge Harm sentencing Homer Simpson|
Judge Constance Harm is a disciplinarian judge and a recurring antagonist in The Simpsons.
She was voiced by repeat guest star Jane Kaczmarek.
She is a harsh, unforgiving disciplinarian. She enjoys creating cruel punishments for criminals in her court and frightening them with a miniature guillotine on the bench. For example in her first appearance, "The Parent Rap", where she was the main antagonist, she orders Bart and Homer to be tethered together, then later has Homer and Marge placed in miniature stocks around their head and arms after Marge breaks the tether, and she later has both of them spanked by people passing by in their cars.
She might be a transsexual based on a statement she makes during her first appearance in "The Parent Rap": "you remind me of me, when I was a little boy".
In "On a Clear Day I Can't See My Sister", she reveals she has a husband. Although Judge Snyder resolves court cases, Judge Harm has mainly been used for handing down negative verdicts, such as sentencing a family member to prison. She also appears in "Brawl in the Family", "Barting Over", "The Wandering Juvie", "Brake My Wife, Please" and "Chief of Hearts."
Despite her enjoyment of giving punishments, Judge Harm is willing to give those what they want the most, such as in the episode "Barting Over", upon hearing over Bart suing against Homer for emancipation after Homer stole all the money Bart used to make an advertisement as a baby. With the help of the Blue-Haired Lawyer, Bart makes a strong case by addressing over Homer's anger problems and how Homer swindled him of his money. As a result, Judge Harm declares Bart emancipated (despite explaining that he's too young be gain emancipation), stating of Homer's socipathic behavior and short temper that is endangering the court as the true reason why Bart shouldn't live with Homer. Furthermore, in order to recoup the loss Bart had suffered, Judge Harm declares that half of Homer's salary he gets from his job go to Bart until he is fully repaid. Realizing his mistake later in the episode, Homer agrees to treat Bart well, and signs up in a commercial to repay Bart of his losses.
- Her name is a play on "constant harm".
