Judge Judy Sued Over $500,000 Fine, Judge Judy is being sued by a plaintiff who claims she helped to fraudulently keep some expensive $500,000 china dishes from her.
Judith Sheindlin, you know her as Judge Judy, is the target of a lawsuit over some fine china at the heart of a divorce settlement. Sheindlin is caught in an employee's messy divorce, with the ex accusing her of helping the employee skimp on a settlement.
The lawsuit accuses "Judge Judy" producer Randy Douthit and Sheindlin of entering into a fraudulent scheme to cheat Douthit's ex-wife Patric Jones out of her expensive Christofle china and flatware in the divorce. The china is allegedly worth $500,000. Reported tristatehomepage...
The lawsuit alleges Douthit sold Sheindlin the tableware for just $50,000, without Jones's consent, in order to avoid a big divorce payout. Jones wants either the china or the $500,000 from the judge.
But Sheindlin isn't playing ball, dismissing the suit in a curt statement saying, "I have not seen any complaint by the former Mrs. Douthit, however, I don't owe this lady a cent. And if this 50-year-old woman would spend her time more productively at trying to find a job, instead of abusing the judicial system with frivolous lawsuits, we would all be a lot better off."
You can catch Judge Judy throughout the week on Local 7, the Tristates CW. Tolong Share ya ^^
