Judge Judy Tells False Accuser: "You Didn't Play Fair!"
The Honorable Judith Sheindlin has made it clear that the no-nonsense judge will not tolerate the manipulation of the judicial system by litigants who try to use restraining orders and false allegations of domestic violence to their advantage.
During the April 30, 2009 episode of Judge Judy, Her Honor told her audience of 10 million people that the female defendant was not about to "put one over" on her. "That's how well I know your game," she told the defendant. "... you may get over on a judge tomorrow, but you're not getting over on me today ... I am going to tell you what you did wrong ... you didn't play fair!"
This episode can be viewed at YouTube in two parts. Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xPk07BK3qA and part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRNLPn6gyZo.
Judge Judy is viewed by 10 million people daily. That is a quick and efficient way to spread the word to the masses that the this type of abuse should not and will not be tolerated.
