  • Judge Judy recently made headlines for being the highest-paid television personality in the world, pulling in $ 47 million per year for handing down her own brand of justice. And while her show makes for great entertainment, it doesn’t especially make for a great education about how the courts work. Here are our top six comparisons between Judge Judy and the real deal, better known to us as small claims court. #1 Both Judge Judy and real small claims courts gather facts and evaluate testimony. In both scenarios, plaintiffs file complaints, outlining the events that occurred and reasons they perceive they are entitled to some restitution. Likewise, defendants respond to those complaints, explaining why they dispute the claims against them. The judge, be it Judy or the circuit court judge or court commissioner you get in real life, then weighs the legal merit of each side before ruling. #2 Judges rely on testimony while Judge Judy relies on contents of a brief complaint. In a real small claims court, judges will hear both sides, relying on each to deliver the salient points of a dispute. But Judge Judy largely goes off the contents of a brief complaint and uses the courtroom time to fire questions, cutting off and controlling the testimony-all to the amusement of viewers. In real life, judges or commissioners are far more respectful, less dominating and, frankly, a lot less entertaining. #3 Judge Judy acts as an arbitrator, not a judge. Judge Judy is actually a retired judge serving as an arbitrator, rendering decisions as opposed to legal judgments. Arbitration is an alternative to litigation which is a dispute that is heard in a court. In litigation you may appeal. In arbitration, an appeal is rare, though it has happened on at least two occasions with decisions rendered by Judge Judy. #4 You’ll see a lot more business actions in real small claims court. Judge Judy tends to dwell in the land of interpersonal squabbles, with individuals fighting over pets, perceived loans and a variety of other petty disputes-revealing a preference for humanity’s lowest common denominator.
