* Circa 2005: Judge Judy heard a case from a young mother named Rachel who was suing her daughter's grandmother for an alleged assault, with the child's father in court as a witness for his mother. Turned out Rachel had a taste for alcohol - in particular Remy Martin cognac - and openly admitted to being in a hotel room drinking Remy with her new boyfriend in the presence of her infant daughter shortly before the alleged incident. The defendant claimed the alleged "assault" was self-defense and took place after she had babysat for her granddaughter, when Rachel showed up drunk and high to pick up the child and the defendant refused to let the child go with her.
--> '''Judy:''' Who has custody of this child?
--> '''Rachel's Mother:''' Rachel.
--> '''Judy:''' THAT BETTER CHANGE! She has NO judgment. ZERO judgment.
The kicker came when Judge Judy asked Rachel to take a hair follicle test to determine whether she had used drugs recently, and the plaintiff refused. In response to that, the judge announced that she was not only dismissing the lawsuit, but sending a copy of the tape to Child Protective Services.

* 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.
-->'''Judy:''' I would sue you for a lot more than the return of his tuition. How dare you? How you take children who have special needs...

* 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, to drive it on their property.

*** Employers these days will look up your name on the web, usually for your Facebook/Twitter account, and for any criminal records on your person. The defendant is forever marked not only as a scammer, but as "the scammer Judge Judy ripped apart on national TV". Since then, she went to prison, lost custody to her children, divorced from her husband, and went into hiding once she got out of jail. Either way, she may never be hired with such a record, and that's good enough justice.

** Sure, the defendant didn't have to pay it (the production team does from a $5,000 "pot", with whatever remains being divided between the participants; if the ruling's for the maximum amount, the loser gets nothing), there's a consequence even she ''did'' get money: the loss of dignity. Having the nation watch you on TV after Judge Judy finds out you did something nasty like screw someone out of casino winnings they won fairly (for example) will wreak havoc on your personal life when your family and friends and everyone you care about find out.

* Judy makes a commentary on how funny it is when people are able to remember small details during a case but not the crucial ones:
-->'''Judy:''' Let me explain something to you, my husband once offended me on July 6th 1978. I can tell you exactly where I was sitting, and what he was eating. Most people have a memory of important dates and times. Now if somebody, gave me/loaned to be $5000 I would remember some of the circumstances surrounding it - because you, sir seem to have a very, very good memory of everything you did - calling the bank, calling the title company, getting the checks, sitting down and going over everything - the only thing you don't have a memory of is "Can I borrow $5000?"
