* 2013?: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyQ_q2Ycl20 this case]], a plaintiff and her son sued the defendant for damage to the plaintiff's car caused when the defendant's daughter crashed it. The defendant's daughter was killed in the crash and her mother was visibly devastated, sobbing openly in court. The defendant countersued for her daughter's loss of life. During the cross-examination, it was revealed that the plaintiff always left her keys in her car and even allowed her son, who didn't have a license yet and was 14, to drive it on their property.

* Circa 2000: An early case involved an elderly grandfather who had made a $500 gift to each of his son's four children for their future needs, and was suing his son and his wife for withdrawing $1500 of the total $2000 sum to use for household expenses. In response, the plaintiff had taken back the remaining $500 and planned to open a new account for his grandchildren. Judge Judy was incensed, pointing out that the defendants essentially stole money from their own children and that they then had the gall to countersue the plaintiff for the $500 he had withdrawn. She eventually uncovered the defendants' motive: the plaintiff's son believed he was entitled to the money because the plaintiff had been an absentee, alcoholic father. Judge Judy was unmoved.

--> '''Judge Judy:''' Well, let me tell you something. If you were ''my'' son, maybe I wouldn't see you either. Judgment for the plaintiff on his claim; counterclaim for the $500 that he took back and that he's going to put back into the account is DISMISSED! You folks are outrageous!

* Judge Judy tears apart a private Christian school [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6ZIp8H0JMw that locked a special needs child in a storage closet for bad behavior.]] The best part is her using a [[TranquilFury surprisingly quieter tone]] when she discovered the principal had an associate's degree, and the teacher only a high school education. Not enough to legally teach a public school, let alone be qualified to teach students with special needs.

* February 2014: A defendant, clearly in the wrong after not paying a babysitter for services rendered, is making so many bad excuses that he's contradicted his own testimony several times.

* 2007?: [[https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=c25_1336370275&comments=1 In this case]], a woman buys what she thinks is two Nextel cellphones from an {{eBay}} seller. The seller sends her two ''pictures'' on copy paper of the cellphones, and the woman takes the case to Judge Judy. The seller explains that she was [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin selling only pictures of the cellphones]]. Judy proceeds to expose her as a scammer and take her down so hard that she can't get near a computer again without an extreme case of InternetBackdraft. Judy gave the plaintiff [[DisproportionateRetribution the maximum judgment of $5,000 (for two $250 phones!)]] because the scam was just that egregious.

* Circa 2013 (Wilcoxon vs. Munoz): The plaintiff sued her former roommate for unpaid rent. One of several issues at play in the case was the defendant's testimony that she had seen the plaintiff, who was sleeping off a night of drinking at the time, literally knock her two-year-old daughter across the room. When Judge Judy told the plaintiff that she believed the defendant's story, the plaintiff lost her temper and began shouting back at the judge. Her Honor determined that the defendant's ejection from the premises had been retaliation for filing a complaint with Child Protective Services after witnessing the aforementioned incident and dismissed the plaintiff's case, advising the plaintiff's sister, who was in court as a witness, to make sure the two-year-old was well taken care of.

* Circa 2012: A Mexican-American plaintiff from Dallas brought a young African-American couple to court for allegedly filing false charges against him for threatening them with a gun. The incident stemmed from a dispute between the plaintiff and defendants over use of a vacant lot from which the defendants were selling floral arrangements. The plaintiff admitted to pulling a gun on the defendants but claimed they attacked him first. Her Honor was having none of it.
