The Bold and the Beautiful has found the actor who will mediate the acrimonious custody battle between Dollar Bill Spencer and Katie Logan.

Veteran actor Joe Lando (Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman) will recur as judge Craig McMullen, who presides over the court battle between the characters played by Don Diamont and Heather Tom. Complicating matters how Katie (Tom) has begun a new relationship with Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher) who convinced her to sue Bill for custody. Since Thorne’s own wife and daughter died on the show, he’s looking for a new family.

His first episode will air Sept. 20.
