I Looooove Judge Judy she is my Fav! I have seen a couple of episodes regarding dog attacks and as soon as she hears "Pittbull" she has already made her judgement.
Aggrieved parties pet ducks were attacked on thier own property by neighbors Pitbull. Pitbull owners didn't believe they were responsible. "My daughter ACCIDENTALLY let them out". Quote "Those ducks are known to be aggressive". Judge Judy was not impressed.
In order to ensure a full audience, the producers of Judge Judy hire extras who compose the entire gallery. Though tickets are not offered for the show, arrangements can sometimes be made with Sheindlin's production staff to allow fans of the show into the audience. Once all the cases are through, all of the audience members receive payment. The extras must not dress casually, and no logos or brand names may be visible on their clothing. Extras are also instructed to appear as if they are having discussions with each other before and after each case, so the bailiff may make such announcements as "Order! All rise" and "Parties are excused; you may step out." As far as the court cases are concerned, however, what is seen on Judge Judy is neither staged nor scripted. The plaintiffs have actually sued the defendants, and those very cases are heard and decided upon by Judith Sheindlin. The court show acquires cases by people submitting claims into them via their website or phone number.
The producers' employees call both parties and ask them questions about their case to make sure it is suitable for Judge Judy. If the parties agree to be on the show and sign a waiver, agreeing that arbitration in Sheindlin's court is final and cannot be pursued elsewhere (unless she dismisses the lawsuit without prejudice), their case will air on Judge Judy. The award limit on Judge Judy, as on most "syndi-court" shows (and most small claims courts in the U.S.), is $5,000. The award for each judgment is paid by the producers of the show, from a fund reserved for the purpose. About forty percent of the cases are money judgments, while the remaining sixty percent are either dismissed or involve an order for an exchange of property.
Both the plaintiff and the defendant receive $100 for their appearance as well as $35 a day, paid to them by the show. The litigants' stay lasts for the number of days that the show does taping for that week, which is two or three days. In addition, the airfare (or other means of travel) and hotel expenses of the litigants and their witnesses are covered by the show. If there is an exchange of property, Sheindlin signs an order, and a sheriff or marshal oversees the exchange. There are no lawyers present, and participants defend themselves on Judge Judy, as is standard in a small claims court. Sheindlin sees only a half-page complaint and a defense response prior to the taping of the cases, sometimes only moments before. Most of the cases, not including any footage deleted to meet the time constraints of the show, usually last anywhere from twelve to forty-five minutes.

I love the as she is not above calling an idiot an idiot. Which is quite often.
do you not think that the waiver they have to sign is proof of the BS in that show.... its a tv show. yes the cases might be real, but its there to make money for a tv audience. therefore the outcomes etc are all staged. if you cant see that maybe your going blind......
every "reality tv show" JJ, today tonight, a current affair, have an agenda...... JJ's is to have a theatrical court case, with an over zealous "judge".
i cant believe im having to explain this to someone who is alot older than me.......
