Added DiffLines:

* RousseauWasRight: There are quite a few cases wherein the people more or less are at an agreement that something needs to be done, they're just trying to figure out who owes how much and what they ''should'' do, and are going to Judy to have her act as an arbiter. ([[MoneyDearBoy and getting a check in the process]])
** One case featured a dog mauling that resulted in the death of a chihuahua. Both the plaintiff and the defendant admitted fault on their parts (Not watching their dogs, not doing enough to prevent digging, not intervening in time), and the plaintiff was trying to keep the defendant from losing ''his'' dogs too. Judy found them both liable for 50/50 of the vet bills, which they both nodded at and agreed to.
** A customer accidentally broke a glass bird bath, and paid for it. However, the owner wanted her to pay more (the sticker price) rather than the cost of the supplies (Which they both agreed to). The mother went on the show to prove a point about honesty to her kids.

* GenreSavvy: People who know how Judge Judy operates and let her steamroll over their courtroom opponent. Surprisingly often, one litigant will win after not speaking a single word during the case, because their opponent's position is just that weak.

* MamaBear: Having worked in family court for decades prior to starting the show, it's no surprise that Judge Judy is a fierce advocate for young people. Here's [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w6ZIp8H0JMw one example.]]

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She may be harsh, but Judy’s job is a judge and she doesn’t take anyone’s side. She’s only to help who’s in the right or wrong, meaning regardless on who’s the plaintiff or the defendant. It’s ''her job'' to be impartial, and while she does make a final decision, she has to hear both sides of the case before doing so.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The entire show has UsefulNotes/{{New York|City}} touches around it, such as scenic footage of New York, the New York state seal and flag on the set, and goes more by the New York law books for their arbitration. However, the show is taped at the Sunset Bronson Studios in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, and Judy flies in from the East Coast to tape a cluster of shows at a time several times a season.

* EmbarrassingRingtone: A plantiff's phone went off in the middle of Judge Judy's ruling. The ringtone was a mooing cow. Her Honor mocked him for it while she was chewing him out for not turning it off.
* EmphasizeEverything: The OpeningNarration is clear about many things. Such as, "''You'' are about to enter the ''courtroom'' of ''Judge Judith Sheindlin!'' The ''people'' are ''real''. The ''cases'' are real. The ''rulings'' are ''final''! (This is ''her'' courtroom!) This is ''Judge Judy''!"

* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Judge Judy has never once been swayed by litigants who are in short skirts or low-cut tops. In fact, if the outfit is particularly ridiculous, she will send them out to either change or find something to cover up with. However, in one case, she apparently felt a little more tolerant or patient: she obviously disapproved of the attire of a very scantily-clad young woman, but she just asked sarcastically, first-off, "Would you like a shawl?", and then let the matter go after no response was forthcoming, and continued with the hearing.

In fact, past years, if the outfit is was particularly ridiculous, she will would send them out to either change or find something to cover up with. However, She rarely if ever does this anymore, though she's certainly not above making snarky comments about a person's attire.

** In another case, the defendant's sister came to court wearing a suit/skirt combo in which the skirt was so short that her jacket came down lower than the skirt. When Judy questioned her about it, the defendant's sister replied that she'd assumed the outfit was appropriate since she'd bought it at a business apparel store (which prompted the comment from Byrd, "Must be a different kind of business"). Judy asked the witness if she'd wear such an outfit to church, and when the defendant admitted she wouldn't, Judy commented, "I just wanted to see where your head was at," and continued with the case.
