Judge Judy (remember her?) is being sued for scamming some woman out of some really expensive china. How's that for random celebrity news?
Judy's producer Randy Douthit was going through a nasty divorce from Patric Jones, and the duo had some very pricey Christofle tableware.
Jones has now filed a lawsuit against Judy, claiming the jurist and Douthit entered into a scam to screw her out of the goods ... valued at $514,421.14!
Jones alleges Douthit sold Judy the goods for $50,000, without her knowledge or consent. Jones claims Judy knew full well the deal was revenge.
The conspiracy allegations get even worse, too.
Jones claims Randy agreed to reduce his profit participation in the Judge Judy show so he wouldn't have to fork over as much money in the divorce.
Jones wants Judy to either fork over the china and flatware or pay $514,421.14, and she's also seeking punitive damages. Judge Judy responded:
"I have not seen any complaint, however, I don't owe this lady a cent."
"If this 50-year-old woman would spend her time more productively at trying to find a job, instead of abusing the judicial system with frivolous lawsuits, we would all be a lot better off."
