Judge Judy Is NOT Being Sued For Plates Anymore! Case SETTLES!

Thank goodness! We think everyone can agree what a RIDICULOUS situation this all was!

As we've reported, Judge Judy was slapped with a $500,000 lawsuit for allegedly conspiring with Randy Douthit, one of her TV show's producers, to buy his ex-wife Patric Jones' super-expensive china and flatware for only $50,000!

Jones has since alleged that she merely wants what she claims to be family heirlooms back, and as of today, it seems as though she got her wish, as the case has settled…and it seems as though everyone got what they wanted!

Well, sort of, anyway!

Despite an alleged value of $500,000, the divorce judge in the case instead appraised the china to be worth around $125,000!

So the deal is this: Judy returns the goods, Patric pays her ex their court-ruled worth, and she gets her plates back!

In a scathing statement, Her Honor concludes:

"This very unpleasant lady doesn't give a hoot about dishes. She cares about pressuring her ex-husband and the way to do that is to attempt to embarrass me. She and her attorney want a circus and I refuse to be a further participant in their drama. As Ms. Jones and her attorney assert, the items are community property, they are being packed and returned to Mr. Douthit and she can proceed with her claim in divorce court. Anyway, my husband and I eat out most of the time."

HA! There's the Judge Judy we all know and love!

It's just a shame that SHE couldn't have had these two on her own show - talk about the BRILLIANT television this whole debacle would have made!

Oh well!

Case closed…we hope!

    This is great new for any man who WOULD have thought of getting married in the future to Patric Jones. STAY AWAY from that 50 year old hag.

    Good for JJudy for washing her hands of this one.
    As for the ex-wife's 'motive?' I really can't see her wanting to embarrass the judge, who is very likeable, and the ex wife may or may not have sentimental investment in the dishes but we can't know whether she actually does or not. At the very least, it seems to be about the principal of the thing where the ex wife feels the husband shouldn't have done it.

    Heirlooms are items that have been in a family for some time, past down from one generation to the next
    These dishes / silver were purchased during the marriage for 100,000, the dishes decreased in vale, silver went up
    Judge said true value is $125,000

    I wonder what condition that china will be in upon arrival. Judge Judy should photograph each dish and box of dishes before sending them off and videotape their collection so she has evidence in case they get broken and she gets sued again.

    Hmmm… Judge Judy's sarcastic schtick works well in HER courtroom. But here, it just sounds like bitter, revisionist history. $50,000.00 for $500,000.00 dishes? Somebody's playing games. I susspect it's EVERYONE involved; including Judge Judy.

    She got herself deep inside a messy dispute; clearly trying to help her friend. She got caught with her, uh, robe down. And now she's trying to spin her way out of it.

    As Judge Judy herself says, "If it doesn't make sense, it didn't happen that way!"

    THUMP!
