Tamara Tunie Cast as Judge in John Black Case on Days of our Lives

Tamara Tunie has been cast for a guest stint on Days of our Lives.  Tunie will play Judge Weston a tough as nails judge and will preside over John Black’s court case come November.   

Tamara Tunie will be familiar to Law and Order: SVU viewers where she portrays non nonsense medical examiner, Dr Melinda Warner.  Daytime fans will also remember her from her years as As the World Turns legal eagle, Jessica Griffin.

Tamara Tunie makes her first appearance on November 18 and according to TVLine.com her decision is set to have a big impact on John Black.  Details of the storyline are being gagged, but rumor has it John Black’s court case involves embezzlement. 
Anyone who has seen the Days of our Lives September 26 re-launch promo, knows that no sooner does a wheelchair bound John Black arrive back in Salem, than he is arrested by Rafe Hernandez.  He is then escorted away, walking, by Rafe and Roman Brady. 
If John was arrested for embezzlement, who did he embezzle from and who brought the charges.  One possibility is of course the DiMera’s. 

John made himself pretty cozy in the DiMera mansion, and took over Stefano’s businesses upon discovering that his birth mother was Colleen Brady and that he and Stefano shared a father, Santo DiMera, making them half-brothers.

Or perhaps the storyline stems out of his activities over the past two years while he and Marlena have been out of Salem….time will tell.
