Judge Judy

You Have 'Stupid' On Your Forehead ... Stupid

Judge Judy
has filed her first lawsuit EVER -- seriously -- against a guy who is shamelessly using her image to chase personal injury clients.

The TV jurist is outraged John Haymond -- a P.I. lawyer in Hartford, CT. -- used clips from "Judge Judy" along with clips of him and his daughters to drum up business.

Judy is especially pissed because she says she's never endorsed a product or the services of anyone ... to maintain her independent reputation.

She says, "Without seeking my authorization or consent, Mr. Haymond has taken that choice away from me for his own personal gain.  I cannot tolerate that, and intend to hold Mr. Haymond financially responsible for his actions."

Judy scolds the barrister, saying, "Mr. Haymond is a lawyer and should know better."

We looked for the ads and, just like the litigants who appear on her show, it appears Judy scared the crap out of Haymond because they are nowhere to be found.

Herhonner is suing for more than $75K in damages ... or in Judy's world, lunch money.

She can be rude and obnoxious but she knows what she's talking about. I'd like to have her smarts and sometimes be rude and obnoxious myself.

How interesting that the news regarding Judge Judy and John Haymond (like the wicked "Haman") was announced just before the start of the Jewish holiday of Purim, which begins Saturday evening, March 15th. That prompted me to write a little song parody, based on the music from the traditional Purim song, "Wicked Wicked Man".

“WICKED WICKED LAWYER”, THE JUDGE JUDY SONG
(SUNG TO THE TUNE OF THE TRADITIONAL PURIM SONG “WICKED WICKED MAN”)

Oh, once there was a pretty stupid lawyer,
John Haymond was his name, Sir.
He used Judge Judy in some ads,
For his own personal gain, Sir

CHORUS:
Oh, that Haymond’s really pretty dim,
Making videos of her along with him,
Used the images to target injury clients
Without Judge Judy’s knowledge and compliance

So now Judge Judy’s filing suit,
Seeking judgment for the damages,
And now poor Haymond’s in pursuit,
Because of all those images

CHORUS:
Oh, today Judge Judy’s gonna sue,
It’s the moral and legal thing to do,
After they serve him, they’ll haul his ass to court
And Haymond won’t be smiling.

Second stanza
Now Haymond was a sneaky one,
The lawsuit really scared him.
And now he’s hiding out somewhere,
But soon the courts will find him

CHORUS:
Oh, today Judge Judy’s gonna sue,
It’s the moral and legal thing to do,
When the trial is over, Haymond will be grim,
And Judge Judy wins lots of money

Judy's son Adam Levy is the D.A. in Carmel, N.Y.. He's under investigation for housing an illegal immigrant who was involved in nefarious activities. This illegal was Levy's personal fitness trainer living in his house. Both Judy and her son are losers!
