Judge Judy

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

breaking news


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.

BIG AL    

ell, she's not even a real judge. What's more judges don't ream out people left and right. They make decisions. She sounds more like a school principal.

To the morons who think she isn't a judge: She was a family court judge in NYC for over two decades and circuit afterwards.

I happened to see this commercial run one time last week. Indeed, Judge Judy has a high opinion of herself. Mr. Haymond also does. However, in this day and age of lawsuits flying around like flocks of birds, it just goes to show you that no matter how rich you are you are always greedy for more. The thing that cracks me up about Judge Judy is how she tells people to find a job and pick up cans or something. She's a smart lady, but she's a little out of touch with the economy.

I don't know how she is able to stay on TV, let alone hold her position in court as a judge she abuses her authority on every case she has ruled on. She is nothing more than a bully. She think she can tell when someone is not telling the truth and claims to be right all the time and belittle's anyone in her court room and gets away with it. I only hope she get's what is coming to her in a BIG way, karma is a bitch
