Judge Joe Brown Sued in 'Nookie' Case

2/22/2010 8:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TV's Judge Joe Brown is being sued by a man who was once a plaintiff on the show -- a man who claims Joe falsely accused him on the show of trying to pay a woman for sex.

The plaintiff, Mark Schweninger, sued a woman on "Judge Joe Brown" for $7,500, claiming he loaned her money but she didn't pay him back. According to Schweninger's lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Brown said on the show, "You were just trying to get nookie."

The suit goes on to define "nookie" as "an indecent sexual term for a woman's private parts and for sexual intercourse."

Schweninger also says Brown called him a "sucker," which he claims drew catcalls from the peanut gallery.

In addition, Schweninger alleges he was defrauded because he was led to believe Brown was a real California judge ... but he is not.

So far, no comment from His Honor or CBS But we know it's SOP in court shows to have litigants sign a binding arbitration agreement in which litigants on the show give up legal recourse once the gavel goes down.

he humiliated me also on the show and had me believe he was a real judge. I hope the guy wins this battle for all the people he has treated badly.

Judge Joe Brown is such a joke. What kind of real judge speaks the way he does, anyway? It's like listening to a seventh grader with a huge ego.

I cant stand this ebonic speaking brotha...he is the biggest racist walking the planest and talks to whites one way and then starts talking like he is from the hood when a bunch of lowlife negro thugs are in front of him... I hope his racist ass loses everything, he was a failure as a real judge and deserves to fail....

Your right about that TMZ. That statement is made right before Judge Joe Brown's show starts. So Schweninger and other people can say what they want to about Judge Joe Brown, Schweninger ain't getting a dime. LOL.

I'm sure that the arbitration agreement does not protect Brown from the consequences of making false and slanderous statements on the air.

@Joann, #6:

The giving up legal recourse pertains to the case they're on the show for. NOT that that can't sue the judge for being an ignorant @ss

What a shame that "We the People" can't haul a lot of Congress people before Judge Joe Brown.

He can't do anything. He signed it all away. Too bad, so sad, "sucker" (to quote the Judge tee-hee).
