If one defines "court" as having to be a governmental body, then Judge Judy is not a court as it is not part of any State's Court System, or part of the Federal Court System. However, if one defines "court" more broadly as "a place where justice is administered," then it is indeed a court. Parties appearing on the show sign an arbitration agreement, which means that Judge Judy's ruling is binding.
