5 p.m. episodes, first new, second rerun-
Irreplaceable Violin Victim-Plaintiff/professional violin teacher, and performer, was in band with defendant, and claims he destroyed her violin. She has already been paid over $9,000+ by the insurance company, hasn't actually replaced the violin, and still wants $3500. She has a letter claiming a replacement by the same maker would be $15k plus. JJ dismisses case without prejudice to go back to Pennsylvania where she can have the appraiser in court. Plaintiff claims defendant was drunk, but he says he had a medical emergency, confirmed by physicians.
Ex-In-Laws' Exit-Plaintiff sing former sister in law, and brother in law (he was married to defendant's sister, she's defendants witness). There are two separate loans to in-laws after ex-wife and plaintiff separated, for an electric bill to help defendant's grandparents, $1500 (she repaid $300), and motorcycle loan was to ex-brother in law. Plaintiff's witness is current girlfriend (aren't they always). Motorcycle loan was for $2000, and can prove he repaid $150. Plaintiff receives 3,050
Dog in a Tutu-Plaintiff with dog in tutu, and defendant (brother's fiance) are fighting over a cute little dog. Dog had to go to vet for overdose on Cocaine, THC, and Meth left around the defendant's house.
Plaintiff took care of dog for almost a year, after defendant became homeless, and is still unsure of her future plans. Plaintiff says in the beginning the dog had a lot of health problems that were the defendant's fault. Defendant says the dog didn't get the drugs in her home, but plaintiff says differently. Defendant and her fiance (plaintiff's brother) don't seem to be capable of staying awake in court. Plaintiff picked the dog up, with two police officers assisting, and took dog to emergency vet for a drug overdose. (I wonder if dog's hefty vet bills included detox? I bet they did). Plaintiff gets the dog, and vet bills.
Horse Killed While Fleeing Hungry Bear-Plaintiff driver and her mother, are suing defendant for damage from defendant's horse damaging the car, and killing the horse. Defendant claims her horse broke through the fence when being chased by a bear. However, plaintiff mother claims horse was often on the road, and there are police reports supporting that. Plaintiff charges dismissed for unlicensed driver stoned daughter, for unclean hands. Plaintiff daughter is obviously impaired in court, as JJ says after she boots daughter. Defendant says unlicensed driver was impaired, and is obviously drunk or high in court. There is proof that the daughter has three DUI convictions already, and lives alone with a 7 and 11 year old children. Defendant has proof of license revoked citation, and claims plaintiff daughter saw many animals on the road (there was actually only the one horse), and has driven without a license with her defenseless children in the car.
Bad Barter Deal-Plaintiffs suing former tenant for rent, water bill, lock changing and cleaning fees. Defendant and plaintiffs agreed that defendant would do work on the house. Defendant claims he moved out in September, and plaintiff claims he left many possession behind in the house, and the house is trashed. JJ says she would have trashed the man's stuff, and defendant claims he'll come and get his stuff. Plaintiffs get $250, because they have no proof of how much clean up would cost.
Empty Pockets in Australia-Plaintiff suing former friend for unpaid loan while they were on a trip to Australia. Defendant ran out of money, and borrowed money from plaintiff, $800. As usual, defendant says it was a gift, and plaintiff says it was a loan. $800 for plaintiff.
