I watch Univision court tv, the litigants refer to the judge as "Doctor", not sure about lawyers though. I am still curious why they use "Doctor"

Because the academic degree of a lawyer/judge would be an LLD (Doctor of Law/Jurisprudence).

¿Corresponde "su señoría" a lo que se usa en Inglaterra, es decir, "M´Lord"? O también se puede usar "su señoría" en Estados Unidos?

Te he encontrado un documento sobre cómo dirigirse a un juez en un juicio. Está editado en EE. UU. por el Gobierno (en Arizona), y dice que ambas fórmulas se usan.

Y ¿si el juez es mujer, se dice "señora juez"?

Solía ser lo correcto, pero hoy día igual hay que informarse, por si la juez es feminista y le resulta insultante que no la llamen jueza.

No tengo más preguntas, su señoría.
No tengo nada más que añadir, su señoría.
No tengo más preguntas, señor/señora juez. (also jueza)
No tengo nada más que añadir, señor/señora juez. (also jueza)

Notice that "su señoría" and "señor juez" are all lower case.

wordreference gives me "Señor Juez" for "Your Honor" (US legal system).

For any native Spanish speakers who might not know, "Nothing further, your Honor" is a phrase that lawyers use to end their arguments in court. Because it's a set phrase, "Nothing further" persists, even though in everyday English a lot of people would just say "nothing more" or "that's all."
