As the Ghostbusters scaled the 15 flights of Dana Barrett's apartment building, the Judge Ghost appeared in the stairwell. He charged the Ghostbusters with interfering with Gozer the Destructor then asked how they pleaded. Peter Venkman deferred to Winston Zeddemore. Winston answered "Nolo contendere" and trapped the ghost.
