Judge Kimba Wood , the brilliant legal mind who has served in Manhattan Federal Court since 1988, is no stranger to scandal. Wood 's biggest legal decision may come Monday when she hears arguments from the lawyers of Michael Cohen , Trump's personal attorney, and federal prosecutors.

Wood was dubbed the “Love Judge” in 1995 when the soon-to-be ex-wife of a multimillionaire Wall Street financier found his diary, which was filled with passionate prose about his trysts with the jurist.

Moneyman Frank Richardson gushed about the time he spent with Wood, describing her as “absolutely wonderful, very intelligent, a complete woman and able to give love wonderfully and freely.”

The illicit rommance began in the spring of that year with dinners at ritzy restaurants and weekend getaways at Wood’s country home. At the time, Kimba was married to a Time magazine columnist but the two were about to divorce.

Richardson — who was worth an estimated $157 million at the time — wrote in superlatives about the judge, even describing one fireside rendezvous at the country home as “beautiful an eight hours as I have spent in my life.”

He and Wood married in 1999.

Legal eagles have also praised Wood, who graduated from Harvard Law School and earned a master’s degree from the London School of Economics.

While a student in England, she worked for a week at a Playboy casino, training as a croupier. But she quit because she thought the gig was silly.

Even before the affair, Wood has made headlines as a tough judge presiding over cases involving high-profile defendants, including “Junk Bond King” Michael Milken.

In 1993 President Bill Clinton nominated her to become the first female Attorney General. But she withdrew from the nomination after the White House learned she had hired an undocumented immigrant as a babysitter.

Wood, who was Clinton’s second choice for AG post, didn’t break the law employing the nanny and in fact paid the woman’s taxes. But the White House asked her to withdraw because her situation was similar to Clinton’s first AG nomination, Zoe Baird.

Cohen, who secretly negotiated a $130,000 payment to X-rated actress Stormy Daniels over an alleged 2007 affair with Trump, had his office raided by investigators last week. The feds have been investigating his business dealings for months.
