* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Occasionally, someone gets a genuine laugh out of the judge. Including one [[ChildrenAreInnocent little girl]] who told Judge Judy she wasn't beautiful because she was "old."

In 2014, Sheindlin created another court show called ''Hot Bench'', which is similar to her own show but uses a three-judge panel, similar to and inspired by the court system in Ireland. Sheindlin is not one of the judges, although she has appeared on a few episodes as a guest judge (as has her husband). Interestingly, ''Hot Bench'' was the original working title of Sheindlin's own show, as she initially didn't like the title ''Judge Judy.'' The three judges on ''Hot Bench'' are retired justices Patricia [=DiMango=] and Michael Corriero and lawyer Tanya Acker; Sonia Montejano is the bailiff and previously served in that same capacity on Series/JudgeJoeBrown.

* TheUnfairSex: Averted. Judge Judy is impartial when it comes to genders.

* TheUnfairSex: Averted. Judge Judy is impartial when it comes to genders. As she often says herself, "I am an ecumenical abuser."
** This particularly shines through in cases involving two feuding parents in which the mother has taken some action to prevent the father from seeing the child. Her Honor is always quick to let the mother know, "Just because you're the mother and he's the father does not make you any more a parent than he is. This child has two parents, and the Supreme Court of every state in this country says that mothers have no greater right to custody than fathers."

--> '''Judge Judy:''' Are you out of your mind? Are you OUT OF YOUR MIND?! She's NOT doing community service for you! Why should she do community service for you? What are YOU doing?
