The first case is pretty sad - 20(?) year old son suing his mom after his DUI. 18 year old sister is alongside Mom as a defendant. Son looks like your typical neckbeard incel. He was released to his mother after one night in jail, for blowing a 2.xx on the Breathalyzer. He came home, then picked up a bat and left the house with it. Mom got nervous and called the police as she didn't know what her drunk son would do next, and he was re-arrested. He decided to move out and now wants various items he accuses Mom of holding: some old printer, 2 cameras and a mountain bike. Son seems pretty bitter for some reason, calling his mother a thief. After questioning from JM, it comes out that the father has 'checked out' on the family and that son is bitter about that too. Then the bombshell - son sexually assaulted his sister when she was younger and that is the main reason that Dad is out of the picture.
JM makes sure the sister is comfortable talking about this - she says yes but some tears flow. She has been to counseling and says she's coping better. She also says she no longer wants a relationship with brother. Honestly, at this point, I muted the TV. JM banged the gavel right after - it was so quick I presume she just dismissed everything.
Case # 2: Classic older man "helping out" a much younger woman who was short on cash. 59 year old dude is a taxi driver who picks up chick who looks like a hybrid of Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj and loans her beaucoup dollars after a couple of sob stories. He trusted her! I was so hoping that JM would mime playing a violin while he swore he had no ulterior motives. Sure, Jan.
