Judge Glenda A. Hatchett is known for an arbitration-based reality court show, produced and distributed by Sony Pictures Television. While her career is glorious, she suffered a real-life tragedy.

Judge Hatchett's daughter-in-law, Kira Dixon Johnson, died from a massive blood loss 12 hours after giving birth via C-section at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Since 2016, the American star has been raising her son and her late daughter-in-law's children, Charles Johnson V and Langston. Judge Hatchett's daughter-in-law, Kira Dixon Johnson, was able to give birth to a second baby boy before her death 12 hours later.

TV judge Glenda Hatchett's son, Charles Johnson IV, filed a lawsuit against the hospital for wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Kira was found with 3 liters of blood in her abdomen when doctors spotted internal bleeding after the childbirth. Both Charles Johnson IV and Glenda A. Hatchett stood in front of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to announce their claim against the hospital as they "ignored" symptoms after giving birth.

Judge Hatchett's daughter-in-law's lawsuit also listed the negligence of the doctors for "failing to appreciate and properly manage Kira's post-partum hemorrhage in a timely manner..."

Kira Dixon Johnson was pronounced dead at 2:22 a.m. on April 13, 2016. The autopsy stated that the cause of the death was "hemorrhagic shock, due to acute hemoperitoneum."

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA responded in a statement to PEOPLE that they were "deeply saddened by the death and the toll it is taking on her family."

Judge Hatchett is a doting grandmother to two grandsons, who sadly lost their mother in 2016. The TV star often posts adorable photos of Charles Johnson V and Langston, as well as of her late daughter-in-law.

Was it destiny for Kira to die in such a way? Or was it evident negligence of the healthcare professionals? Ruefully, she has gone, being survived by her devoted husband and two lookalike sons.
