That woman was so abrasive and unpleasant - is it ever a good idea to roll your eyes when a judge is talking to you? - and btw, no one cares about her empty nest and why she was selling the piano. Couldn't she have gone, just once, to the shop during these years to see if her piano was there? Def, a lovely man in his lovely piano key tie, is from a different time and place (he made me think of the shopkeeper in "1984") and no one else would have sent her the 2K or given the other buyer his deposit back. Let her pay to take back the piano the way she agreed to do in her contract - and she'll still have a windfall of 1900$ - and sell it herself. Good luck with that.
And another man-child who needs his big hover-mother here to tell him what to say about what happened even though she wasn't there. He should have asked Mommy to reply to plaintiff's texts for him and maybe they wouldn't have ended up here.
I was distracted by the audience member behind the so-called lawyer who was laughing hysterically at his BS. Plaintiff is a child of God or something although I"m not sure how that factors in to him trying to hustle 1900$ for a 4-year old TV. He was offered 500$ for it and should have grabbed that but it wasn't good enough and in fact he was insulted at such a paltry sum. You know what you can get for 500$ these days?
In all the years I've watched these shows, I can recall off-hand ONE lawyer who knew his business, was competent and actually knew the law. Here we had another utter clown who sounded ridiculous, trying to use rank hearsay as evidence to countersue as in criminal proceedings of "Malicious prosecution". One of the best parts was his dopey "Expert" witness. JM expected him to report on the condition of the TV, ability to fix it, how it could be damaged by a window a/c nowhere near it, cost to replace it or whatever. He's an accountant, who took the time to draw up charts and graphs on the value of the old TV with and without extended warrantys or some such nonsense. What a pair of foolish bozos. I will never, ever hire a lawyer.
Doug in the Hall was simply savage: "You're a lawyer. How could think talking back to the judge was a good idea? It made you sound really stupid." Never stop being you, Doug. 😂
