Judge Judy

China/Silverware Lawsuit

SETTLES!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0315-judge-judy-patric-jonesJudge Judy's beef with the ex-wife of her producer has settled ... and Judy won't have to pay a penny ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Patric Jones sued Judy, complaining the judge and her ex conspired to screw her out of uber-expensive china and flatware with an estimated replacement value of more than $500,000.  The divorce judge said the stuff Judy has is worth around $125,000.

Judge bought the dishes from producer Randy Douthit for the bargain basement price of $50,000.

Patric's lawyer, Perry Wander, tells TMZ ... the case is over.  Patric will pay Randy $12,500 and she gets the dishes and stuff.

Stick a fork in it ... it's done.

interesting...so an ex of a man who has a good job for a good show wants these "plates" back BUT also wants money? smells like someone didnt have a job and was looking for the easy way out.

Its kind of sad that the same person who has such distain for people who try to take advantage of others would do the same thing Judge Scheindlin knows full well the dishes were community property when she bought them. She knows the law. I guess she like so many others thought they would get away with it. Now that she had to return them, Im wondering if she loved the dishes enough to go out and pay full retail for them.

Way to go Judge Sheindlin! This nasty THING was out for a quick buck and it didn't work. Just loooking at this freak woman says this. If the stank and her ex husband had issues between them...too bad. The ex sold the set to Judge Sheindlin and that was it. Judge Judy didn't have anything to do with the beef between the exes. GLAD JUDGE SHEINDLIN WON!

I would love to see Judge Judy on the other side of the table, If karma works, the presiding judge will be rude, nasty, disrespectful and above all, will pre-judge the case and already have a verdict, before even hearing the facts of the case, just like she does to the participants on her show!
