Judy court short

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Your Say -

from J. Do­rian, Aspendale RE­CENTLY I hap­pened to see Judge Judy and I’m glad I usu­ally can­not watch this ap­palling show. If, as an­nouncer Jerry Bishop says, the cases and peo­ple are real— even in small claims— the peo­ple ap­pear­ing are en­ti­tled to le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tion un­der US law. No judge is per­mit­ted to yell at peo­ple, call them names and shout as this woman does— no doubt through her script, but it’s not legally per­mit­ted. Bits of pa­per and re­ceipts must be handed to a judge or lawyer rep­re­sent­ing the client be­fore the case is heard, be it for $1 or $1000. Peo­ple at­tend­ing court must not laugh or re­act to­wards any­thing said or done in the court. I like proper le­gal shows. This one is the pits and should go from our screens. Glad to miss it.

Get her off:

Judge Judy yells at peo­ple and calls them names.
