Not a fair show
20 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don t find most of her judgments fair. People bring in receipts and she picks and chooses..no one gets all they lost...take your problem to another judge. I do think she is great with small children..but calling teens losers or stupid is out of line and then doing the same to the parents..well..its seems very unprofessional. I realize these court shows are not on television for justice but for entertainment. Many of them are actually good. They are fair and entertaining..however, the Judge Judy show shows court and judges at their worst. She s rude..she doesn't listen ..she picks and chooses what she "wants" to hear which often seems to cause the real issue to be side stepped. This is not fun and games this is about peoples real lives. I wish she would step up the professional ladder a bit.
