I enjoyed Judge M's reading of the defendant's little note too: "Hi baby. I needed $100 for bowling, hair, and stuff" or however the hag phrased it. She did this to one of our local jackasses one time who had met a girl online and screwed her out of a bunch of money while in jail. He kept saying "I never asked for money." So -- Judge M starts to read the letters: "Hey Baby I can't wait to be with you. I only need $500", "I only need $400 for my divorce and we can be together." I felt bad for the girl but the guy was such a creep. His brother "molested" the girl and the police here in Arkansas basically told her just to go back to New York. Boyfriend didn't seem to care about it either.

Wow. I am watching today's installment...and these two defendants walked in--I think they're mother and daughter--and they look like someone cloned the Parkers, put em in pink sweatsuits (pink! sweatsuits! In [i]court[i]!) and extracted 50% of the class that the Parkers have. I could see people in the audience cracking up. Judge M. called them the "Doublemint Twins." Boy, she's being generous.

JM seemed very disheartened by this case with all the baby's daddy fighting.

I'd like these judge shows better if the defendant or plaintiff actually had to pay money out of their own pockets. It would make watching TPC that much more fun.

This morning, a gay couple sued a trolley driver for not delivering service for their commitment ceremony. The jackass had the gall to countersue them for not paying the full amount of the bill. The couple won, and I thought Judge M's head was going to explode as she was giving the driver a verbal spanking. I've never seen her that angry in a simple contracts case.

I kind of like Judge Judy too, but we won't go there.
I totally saw the gay couple case. At first she seemed to be busting the couple's balls (bad choice of words?), but her smackdown of the "trolley" company owner was truly great. What a total sleezeball, just the total epitome of sleaze, especially in those tinted glasses. ugh.
I loved when he asked the two guys: "How could you know when the tide would be high or low"? Uh, it's called the moon. Idiot.
Also the gay couple? So cute.

Today, some poor schmoe called Judge M "babe." It's a good thing he was winning anyway, because...no, I wouldn't want to be the person who did that.

BTW, what's that saying she always says from the Spanish. I think it's something, I went out and got a soda and came back. I wanted to say that to my friend but I forgot it.

I think her little catchphrase is "I've been where you're going, sat down, had a soda, and returned.

The white plaintiff claimed that the defendant maliciously reported to the Cops and Special CPS that she let her foster kid play in the rain. The defendant also reported that the plaintiff had wild parties with underage drinking. The foster kids were removed but apparently Special CPS cleared the couple and were/are going to let them have foster kids again, not the ones removed from the house.
In the ruling, I think the judge was more concerned with the effect of the more-likely-than-not false report on the child than accusations of racism. Although Milani was the one who said that the foster child who was playing in the rain was white (and it appeared was the first white foster child).
The facts presented were very confused and it wasn't obvious what was going on. I wonder if that had to do with the involvement of child in the case or maybe just the editing of the case.

It was really neat when The plaintiff started saying "Praise Jesus! I only wanted my stuff!" And Judge Milian stated "Don't you take the Lord's name in vain!"

That one gay "adult entertainer" yesterday or the day before criticized the judge's makeup and gave her a sneer after the ruling cause he lost. What an asshole. Nobody messes with Milian!

Does anyone kmow the hallway guy, Kurt's last name? thanks!
A search of the 'net yielded not-so-much, until this bit I found on imdb. At the end of the list of "cast" is his name, Curt with a C.
Strange... I wanted more info on this show (it's my secret shame... well, I suppose less secret now, and more just shame!), but where is it?? There's no real website! All I could really find was random worthless mentions in blogs and whatnot. It's sad.
I really don't understand why they don't have at least a functioning website. A lot of people watch the show, and it's actually good -- sometimes funny as hell -- unlike all the bitter (JJudy), retarded court shows out there (JMathis) that let people argue and talk smack while the judge is speaking! This one is way more like a real court, less like a moronic circus. Judge Milian seems to have a little less to prove, so she doesn't depend on her persona to fuel the show; instead the focus is more on the real people who actually DO fuel the show. Truth is always weirder than what writers can come up with, and I think the producers get that.
Also, I never get the feeling that the litigants are paid extras, as I definitely do with some court shows. I've always wondered what the details are regarding payment and such. They still flash the same quick page at the end of each episode that they've flashed since Wapner, but it is just a very general sort of disclaimer. I want the dirt!
Why they don't see a need for a website (which is great advertising) is beyond me. Good grief... even my toothpaste has a damned website!

Judge made him pay!!!!!
I love it when dumb cheap people want to come accross as suave, intelligent know-it-all's and she calls them on it. It made my day. She does it with a lot of class, though..............

Don't Harvey Levin and Curt Chaplin look like they were carved out of the exact same block of cream cheese?
YES! For the longest time, I thought they were the same person.

I have seen a couple of shows where it was clearly killing her to have to agree to give an evil plaintiff money from a decent defendant.
Just caught an episode today, probably a rerun, about a woman who complained that a drycleaner ruined her very expensive tracksuit. Except she apparently got a receipt only after the fact, and it looked very much to Miss M like a scam receipt, so she couldn't prove what the tracksuit really cost, and she doubted the tracksuit was really all that new, since it was stretched out. Judge M dressed down the plaintiff, then declared her the winner of 30 whole bucks. Snicker.

I saw one today where she just lit in to the kid who had the gall to sue the woman who kept him off the streets. He had swapped clothes with the woman's son and when the son moved out and took the clothes, the plaintiff felt the woman should pay for his clothes! After the woman let him live rent free in her house for three months!
Judge Milian wanted no part of that one. She tossed him out on his ear and he STILL didn't get it!
