He tells her that they used to be hers.

The judge walks back in and he and Ethan began to discuss the notions, including him not being present for the trials. Ethan asks if he can be blunt and the judge says no. Kay asks if judges are supposed to be all about the truth but he shrugs her off. Ethan admits everyone is being blackmailed but the judge becomes flustered, saying he doesn't know anything and that Ethan can't prove it. Ethan thinks if they go out of Harmony then the blackmailer will have a harder time. The judge almost considers it but then a strange laughing is heard throughout the room.
