I Find For the Plantiff
25 November 2001 | by (Pike County, IL) – See all my reviews

This show far surpasses any of the court shows which have come out in the late '90's, including it's follow-up series. Judge Wapner was so hilarious that he leave you rolling with laughter after his decisions. The only thing missing was that they needed to have Officer Burell work Doug Llewelyn over with his night stick. **** stars.
