Isgro Obtains Judge's Story: Controversial music promoter and movie producer Joe Isgro has obtained the rights to the story of Stuart Namm, a renegade Long Island judge who once accused police of mishandling two murder cases. Isgro, who was the executive producer of "Hoffa," says he identifies with the story of the now-retired Namm because of his own experiences with the judicial system. A major payola case against Isgro was dismissed in 1990, but the case was reinstated earlier this year.
