me start by saying that Judge Judy is a better show than
People's Court. I think that she does make some good
judgments but then there are those other ones that are
totally unfair. I took my case to Judge Judy. Let me
explain my side and then I will tell you her ruling.
I lived with my father in Tennessee for 9 months. During
that time I was in my last year of High School. I paid
for my class ring ($380) and everything seemed to be ok.
All except for the woman that my father married. She
hates my sister and I because we are the tie between him
and his ex-wife. We got into an argument over a CD that I
bought and one day when I got home from school she threw
me against a wall and then against a china cabinet. 5
days later I was on a plane back to California to live
with my mother. About 6 days after I left the woman my
dad married went to the place where I purchased my ring
and canceled my order and was given $330 (a $50 non
refundable deposit was kept by the company). I was lied
to for months by my father. He kept telling me that they
were going to ship my ring out to me. Finally I called
the company and was told that they canceled the order
months ago. So I thought (and still think) that I was
entitled to my money from the ring.
Well, I took my case to Judge Judy. She turned the case
into an argument over my mother and father's divorce and
spoke to me 2 times. Once to ask me if my mother was
there and the other to ask what happened between the
confrontation with my dad's wife. She treated me as if I
were a child even though I am 18 (a legal adult). Judge
Judy said that I didn't deserve my class ring and that my
father owes me nothing. I assume she came to this
conclusion by reading my father's statement. He said that
I was unruly and was playing my parent's against
eachother. She also implied that maybe I was the reason
of their divorce even though I was only 5 at the time.
So, she dismissed the case.
Now my father and I don't talk at all, and I still
don't have my class ring or the money to buy it. These are the
type of rulings that I think are unfair.
I think she needed to stick with the main point of the
case rather than talking with my mother and their divorce. That
is only my opinion.
Have you ever appeared on Judge
Judy? We would love to share your experience with the world!
