It seems that the tables have turned on Judge Judy.
The famous television judge is being sued by a woman, Patric Jones, who claims that Judge Judy Sheindlin conspired with her ex-husband to cut her out of the sale of fine china that which Sheindlin bought for a small fraction of what the set is actually worth, reports TMZ. The man who sold her the china is a producer for the television show Judge Judy and the former couple were going through a nasty divorce at the time and in the middle of splitting their property. According to Jones, the Christofle chinaware that the two owned together was sold to Sheindlin without her consent for just $50,000, but the set is worth $514,421.14.
The woman is demanding that the judge give her china set back or fork over the rest of the money that she thinks she is owed. She is also seeking punitive damages.
But Judge Judy says she doesn't owe Jones anything.
"I have not seen any complaint by the former Mrs. Douthit, however, I don't owe this lady a cent," Judge Judy said. "And if this 50-year-old woman would spend her time more productively at trying to find a job, instead of abusing the judicial system with frivolous lawsuits, we would all be a lot better off."
